Happy Times at Høstfest

Happy Times at Høstfest; some fun films and iconic imagery here we go…

There is a link to the full story at the foot of the blog.

Heidi travelled to Sweden to learn her skills with a promise to travel within the US Viking community.

There were activities for children,and everyone else who wanted to have a go.

There are such things as Trolls.

Menominee reconstruction in child size (I really wanted this)…

Carding flax into linen ready for weaving and eventual ironing

Joie’s stall (With singing in the background)

I didn’t manage to catch the Regia Anglorum display area which was brilliant, but here is the side stall.

Beads and Pins

Some bone pins

Through the walk way is an even bigger festival, covering anything and everything American Scandinavian. There are about 15 stages, and lots going on. I was invited to take part in the rope making.
