Today I have negotiated a lovely discount for the traditional Norwegian knapper/buttons needed for our Autumn Kofte Course - Garnmannen 430. The original buttons for this Kofte are pictured above, as you will also see sewn on the kofter within the Kofteboken 1.
We will need 8 buttons for this Kofte.
You might remember that 7 buttons were priced at 28 US dollars within our first course.
As a returning customer, I was will be able to get the 8 buttons for 24 US dollars, so a nice savings as a returning customer group.
The buttons are not available in my farm shop yet.
I will have them there ready as a pre-order sometime soon.
I do hope you will let me know in the comments below if there is interest for the original knapper! I have to purchase them in advance and that is an investment for my little farm.
Pyntebånd - Traditional Ribbons!
As you know, I am offering a course to learn to weave your own traditional ribbons for this course! If you are participating in the course, I do hope you will join us!
We will have some options here and I am working on something very special, with the hope that you can use the exact wool and colours that you are using to knit your Kofte.
This will not be a traditionally thin band, but just a bit wider.
We will see.
It will be very beautiful and handmade by YOU for generations to come!
An heirloom piece!
