About ASI / Instructors / Johanna Runbäck

Johanna Runbäck

Johanna Runbäck is a professional seamstress and the head hand-sewing teacher at the renowned Sätergläntan Institute for Handicraft since 2010. She did her craft training at Mora Folkhögskola and Sätergläntan, and started her own company in 2008 where she sews traditional Swedish folk costumes to order. She also teaches evening sewing classes to adults in her community and advises the costume department at Rättviks Hemslöjd. Johanna has a passion for horses that borders on a lifestyle, and when not sewing, she can usually be found riding her Northern Swedish draft horse in the moonlight across the Swedish countryside.
