This adventure meets the needs of two passionate audiences: fiber artists and Nordic craft enthusiasts. By exploring the cultures and traditions behind the charm of these crafts, fans can enjoy extra-meaningful making.

Step 1: Vivid photos and spirited text explain the values and beliefs core to Scandinavian life--nature, community, craftsmanship, and sustainability.

Step 2: For each value, create 4 to 7 thoughtfully designed fiber art projects featuring knitting, felting, and weaving.

- Each project's difficulty level is marked (beginner, advanced beginner, and intermediate)

- Author is editor emerita of Handwoven, the largest-circulation fiber arts magazine

- Projects by respected designers including Becky Ashenden, Laura Berlage, Sara Bixler, Susan J. Foulkes, Lisa Hill, Tom Knisely, Jan Mostrom, and John Mullarkey, to name just a few
