I am doing a happy dance for my new local shop :-)

P1060831Why not visit it today, or tomorrow, or next week ?
I have been told Marianne is hosting an opening party in the shop on the upcoming Thursday 16. August, from 5 pm to 7 pm.
I intend to be there :-)

Trådsnella AS
Skårersletta 10
1473 Lørenskog

Opening hours -
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday - 10-17
Thursday 10-19
Saturday 10-15

If you have trouble finding the shop, it is right next to the bicycle shop - which has huge signs outdoors.


I LOVE the selection of DMC embroidery floss - all the colours. Stitchery lovers heaven :-)

P1060834P1060841The newest in patterns and fabrics, new goods coming in every day.

P1060835The gorgeous hand made buttons from Snella & Petronella.


Everything I need for my needleturn applique and for English paper piecing.

P1060843P1060837Good quality quilting thread and sewing thread.


Even if I am not a knitter, I love the way the yarn is arranged - nearly like a quilt.
The selection of knitting and crochet tools are good too.

If you wonder - I live 10 minutes from the shop - and I am a very happy customer :-)


Count your blessings, stitch them one by one.



  1. oh how nice to have this close could be dangerous for the bank

  2. Takk for tips! Må prøve å få tatt turen.... og har sendt tips videre til andre quiltere ;-)

  3. Yummy gorgeous! I wish I could just hop on into the shop. Love the ladybug applique with flowers on. Thanks for sharing. Enjoy your new shop!

  4. Dette ser ut til å bli en kjempekjekk butikk. Men jeg lurer på hvor den ligger (hvilken by?) Kanskje får jeg mulighet til å stikke innom hvis jeg er på de kanter.

  5. What a lovely shop and right in your neighborhood, too. Have fun!

  6. Er dette en nyåpning av en butikk som har vært der før? Tipset min datter som bor på Rælingen om denne. Tror vi får ta oss en tur neste gang jeg er på besøk :-)

  7. Herlig butikk. Blir nok et besøk dit ja:-):-):-)

  8. I can see you spending your time ( and money) at this shop! She has set it up beautifully and love her colour choices.

  9. I would be in crochet heaven with all that wool! How lucky are you to liv so close to such a lovely shop,very envious I am :) Barb.

  10. What a wonderful shop! The pattern choices look amazing!

    Yes it would be good to make a quilt of scrappy triangles with a narrow white edging. Beautiful!

  11. Wonderful shop, it seems to have everything a girl can wish for.
