Nordic Knitters Were Part of Seto Handicraft Exhibition in Pskov

Seto Handicraft Association organized a grand exhibition in Pskov, RUSSIA. There are handicraft items from 17 different masters at the display in their National Heritage Center. Besides mittens and gloves, there are belts and embroidery, silverware and woven works presented in this glamorous and extensive show of Seto Culture.

Nordic Knitters brought 30 pairs of mittens and gloves. Also a beautiful slide show is running next to the actual knitwear. Most of the mittens are knitted using Siberian seto floral patterns. The rest are ancient patterns from  Setoland and Estonia.

The exhibition will stay open until March 23rd.
