About 30 years ago I made a logo for myself and have used it since that. The logo depicts a sheep in who's ears the shape of my first two letters are marked. A and M. You have to look closely to see that. A shuttle is placed with the sheep. I am a great lover of wool and admire sheep and in those days I didn't realize that most of my weaving would be with cotton rags. The Icelandic word vefari means weaver in English.
My interest in goats was already there but has flourished in resent years as can be seen on the cashmere part of my website.
The logo is sewn on all my rag rugs and you can see it on the image below. An old rag rug that garnishes my floor is seen in the background. I am not sure who wove it, might have been my grandmother in Finland or one of her weaving cousins.
The cousins would assemble and cut the rags and weave rag rugs. Imbi was her cousin that was a professional rug rag weaver. In her house in the small town Kristinestad in W Finland I touched a loom for the first time in my life at the age of 8. My mother photographed that moment. I will find the image and show it here on the blog.
