Needleturn in Trysil

Today I have been giving my workshop in needleturn in Trysil. Went there yesterday to stay over with my friend Laila and we had a nice evening chatting and sewing.

I finished the other two Christmas baubles. Laila had bought some lovely wool fabric at Kathrines Quiltestue and she also made one for herself. Now I just have to order that wool fabric too, I want to sew more with wool :)

Today it was the needlturn workshop and I think the ladies enjoyed it. They got to try my favorite thread that I am using for sewing needleturn. And I think they all have put the Yli 100 silkthread on their Christmas wish list.

A lot of preparations done before sewing.

Some used my pattern and some started to sew on other things. But they all got a lot of tips how to build up a motif and how to do needleturn sewing. Needleturn is my favorite way of applique and it was so fun teaching the ladies to do it.

It was a great saturday together with 15 ladies :) Always fun to have a workshop in Trysil.

And winter has arrived. Look what was outside my apartment when I came home today. The boys next door had buildt a lovely snowman. It is so cute!!!!

Saying for today:

There's no man
like a snowman
