I will be on vacation from May 15 to June 6 and will not be able to ship during this time. I will resume shipping starting June 7. Thank you for understanding.
This paperback book was self-published by Erna Jansons in 2015 and contains text in both English and Latvian.
73 original hand-painted designs are featured along with some biographical information about Erna and historical information about traditional Latvian wall hangings. These designs are intended for use with weaving or embroidery techniques but would also be great for rug hooking and other textile arts. Traditional Latvian motifs and colors are used by Erna in her unique and beautiful style.
About the author: Erna Jansons was born in Latvia and studied professionally to become an accomplished Textile Artist. She left her home country of Latvia in 1944 during World War II for Germany and later immigrated to Wisconsin with her family.
