Crowdweave for newcomers
With Christmas around the corner and the harsh Swedish winter upon us, we would make someone’s new-home-far-away-from-home a little cozier. And what could be cozier than the quintessential Swedish rag rug. We’re setting up a loom in the gallery so we can weave a rag rug or two for some newcomers in need. But we need your help! So please come by and weave a few rows – no previous experience required. Remake Stockholm Stadsmission has generously donated a pile of rugs so all we need is people-power! Also, if you have an old (but clean and whole) rag rug lying around that you don’t need anymore please drop it off at the gallery so it can lend some much-needed warmth to a new home.
Our mission is to collectively weave two rag rugs in 24 hours. The crowdweave will start on Thursday the 8th of December and end on Sunday the 11th of December. Opening hours are Thursday 12-20, Friday 12-18, Saturday and Sunday 12-17. Gingerbread biscuits and “glögg” will be served to all volunteers. Spread the word!
