Angie Johnson's Profile
Looking for the shop? Here's a link:
My name is Angie Johnson, I've been sewing for as long as I can remember. I first learned my mad sewing skills first from my mom and then through a bachelors degree in Clothing and Textiles from the University of Manitoba. I also seem to have acquired some shocking pack rat skills from my grandma.
Prior to starting Norwegian Wood I worked in the mainstream fashion industry for 8 years as an assistant designer and then head designer for various companies. I have now escaped and work on Norwegian Wood full time.
Many people ask me where the name Norwegian Wood comes from. Well, I'm part Norwegian (via my paternal grandpa) and I really love the Beatles song and Murakami book of the same name…
