Please forgive me for jumping lightly over the last week and a half and go directly to the Norwegian Quilt Association's yearly meeting, which is THE quilt happening in Norway every year :-)
Location: Brunstad Conference Centre
Arriving: Yesterday afternoon
Who is here: Old friends and new friends from all over the country
Shops present: Several, amongst them my 3 favourite shops Quiltegården, Lappemakeriet and Quiltefryd.
It has been a busy, happy, smiling day, and here you have some impressions from Quiltegården's area:
Absolutely no affiliation - just one of my favourites shops, and I was so lucky to be there before they opened and could take good photos :-)
If you give them a call they will happily help you out with patterns and fabric on all the above quilts :-)
My Nealy Insane quilt is part of Quiltefryd's decorations :-)
Look at Ann Sutton's lovely new design!
The famous Japanese designer Yoko Saito was giving a speech on her quilting life this evening.
The interpreter was not quite up to the job, to interpret from her native language Japanese to Norwegian, but one could sense Yoko Saito's passion, and I am so happy to attend Yoko's class tomorrow, in spite of the poor interpretation.
The door price at the quilt supper / Yoko Saito speech.
Midnight - winding down with blogging and a glass of good red wine.
Life is good indeed!
