Wynne Mattila of Minneapolis, MN, designs and weaves rugs which reflect her Finnish heritage. It all starts with color - the way she sees color creates a feeling in her; this is the basis of her design. Two of her rugs (one as a how-to project) appear in Weaving Contemporary Rag Rugs by Heather Allen. Wynne has been teaching rug weaving at the Weavers Guild of Minnesota since 1998. Her classes emphasize beauty, function, technique, and the love of color in creating.
