A visit to the quilt shops

Friday morning the shops started to set up their shops in the "shopping street". A total of 21 shops had loaded their cars and hangers with sewingmachines, fabrics, books, patterns and everything a quilter wants. Some hectic hours before the "shopping street" could open.

Several shops had been visiting Ikea on their trip.

A lot of wonderful quilts was to be hung up.

And this is how the shopping street looked like some hours before the opening :)

And in the last minute they finished the last things on their shop and the doors could open for all the shopping hungry ladies. Just enjoy a trip down the shopping street with me :
































I did not manage to take a photo of all the shops, but you agree with me that there was a lot of temptations. And when I take a closer look at these photos I see a lot of things I did not see earlier :)

Tomorrow I will start showing you photos from the exhibition.

Saying for today:

Whoever said money can't buy happiness
simply didn't know where to go shopping.

Utsøkte butikker;fint at du viser så mange bilder. Flott opplevelse av NQFs årsmøte i år også. Dere står på år etter år. Og det er riktig å variere med steder dere holder årsmøtet. Nå gleder meg til å se bildene fra selve utstillingen også. Den var like interressant i år som tidligere. Spennende å se mangfoldet i quiltene.

Tusen takk for at du delte dette May-Brit! Det var deilig å se, følte nesten at jeg fikk tatt på stoffene, quiltene og alle de flotte andre tingene som butikkene hadde med seg.
