Annemor Sundbø is a textile designer and teacher. She owns and operates a knitting workshop, “Ose Ullvare” in Setesdal, about 110 km from Kristiansand, Norway. From 1993 to 2006, Annemor ran the last remaining shoddy factory in Norway, Torridal Tweed og Ulldynefabrikk. This unexpected project came about after she approached the mill for training. The mill owner agreed to train her on one condition, she had to buy the factory. The storage bins were a treasure trove of knitting patterns and cultural history, through which Annemor unravelled the fascinating history of traditional knitting in the region. Annemor lectures internationally and teaches spinning, folk art embroidery, and knitting design and has published many books on topics related to Norwegian knitting.
Annemor Sundbø (b. 1949) of Kristiansand, is a Norwegian national grant holder, and the recipient of the Kings Medal of Honor, the Norwegian Handcraft Association’s Medal of Honor in 2004 (for preservation and continuance of cultural values, both domestically and internationally), Aust-Agder County’s Cultural Prize in 1999, Bygland Community’s Cultural Prize in 2004, Sørlandet’s Literature Prize in 2006, and Vest-Agder County’s Cultural Prize in 2015. She ran Torridal Tweed and Wool-Duvet Factory from 1983 to 2006, when the machines were moved to the textile museum at Sjølingstad Woolen Factory, and started Ose Woolens in Setesdal in 1993.
