Lisa weaves very absorbent, long-lasting kitchen towels on her Swedish Glimakra loom. They are designed for optimum utility, and are the result of generations of Swedish expertise and knowledge. In the warp, is a thread known as cottolin: a combination of linen and cotton. The warp is crossed with linen. For a limited number of kitchen towels, Lisa handspins on her spinning wheel, a linen thread, from flax grown in Europe. For an exclusive line of dishtowels, she is handspinning a linen thread made of flax grown in Nova Scotia: thus a more local product!

She spins and weaves in her studio in her 1790 house in Williamsburg, Massachusetts.

Lisa is a guest at the studio of Emily Gwynn in Shelburne Falls, for the Tour.

She will demonstrate the spinning by hand of a linen thread. She will be using a distaff dressed with flax, something rather unusual to see.

Purchases may be made by cash or check.
