Workshop in Østerled and my NEW sewingmachine


Yesterday Hanne and I was invited to give workshops (among with 3 other teachers) in Østerled.  This is a yearly happening in Østfold and it was so fun to meet new and old friends.  This was the first time for me giving workshop here and I really enjoyed it.  Never have 16 ladies been so quiet.  They were so concentrated in their sewing and got a lot done.


This year Kathrines Quiltestue was invited to have a shop there.  And they had filled the classroom with a lot of goodies.


I think all the ladies went home with a lot of inspiration and new fabric this weekend.


This is my class.  Half the class had already gone home when the “show and tell” started.  But all of them had finished their hearts to make this quilt.


Hannes class. She teached “sewing on the line”.

And the three other classes.


All ladies had so much fun during their classes.


During the lunch break I got the oportunity to visit the quiltshop and of course some goodies had to come home with me.  Have tried this new scissor today and I love it. 

But the best of all

when I came home late yesterday

this box was waiting for me


My new sewingmachine!!!!!!!!!

Me doing a happy dance

but I was too tired to open the box yesterday


But today I have played with my new toy, and I LOVE MY NEW SEWINGMACHINE. 

Saying for today:

So nice to have a new sewing machine. Can you machine quilt with it? I am looking to buy a sewing machine with that possibilty and everyone talks about the Bernina or the Pfaff but no one really talks about the Janome, so curious.

Oh my goodness - a new machine!!!That is very, very exciting. Good wishes to you both (you and the new machine.) I hope you have many years of a wonderful relationship. :-)

I think you demonstrated much restraint. I think I would have bought more than you.

Bon Chance

How exciting for you - your new machine is finally home :)and you got to take it out for a drive - I bet it handled wonderful. What a great classroom you had - lots of bright light. I saw several wonderful things that could have come home with me from that vendor - of course it's always the applique quilts that pull me in. The goodies you brought home were so pretty. happy sewing on your new machine
Hugs - karen
