The Hordamuseum

The Knit7 project is one of the most important commitments for the Hordamuseum in 2007, with a
large culture historical exhibition, educational programs to the public and the schools and other events. The Hordamuseum is focusing on the «popular» and the everyday aspect of knitting, mainly home knitted clothing were the centre of attention will be on the 1900s. It´s important to show that the simple and ordinary also are important culture historical resources. Knitting lies in the boundary between the traditional and the modern. One finds remains from the self-sufficient household in earlier times mixed with modern leisure comprehension and changes in trends.
