Quiltingtrip to Tønsberg

Yesterday Åse, Anne, Hege and I got in the car and drove to Tønsberg, the oldest town in Norway. It is a lovely little town by the sea, and the population explodes during the summertime. Our goal was to visit Quiltefryd, but first we had a delicious lunch on the pir. Check out the huge club sandvich on Åses plate! We had a really nice time, but missed Pia and Ingebjørg who unfortunately couldn`t make the trip.

After "filling up our tanks" we were ready to do some seriously shopping. This was our first trip to Quiltefryd, and we were not disappointed.

The shop is wonderful, two stories filled up with all the goodies a girl could want for. The staff was very friendly and helpful. As you can see on the right side of my blog, they made it to my list of favourite quiltshops.

Their walls was filled with lovely quilts, like this one. It is a shame that the trip down there takes a while, because they have really nice classes.

This is what I brought home. Three new books, patterns and wonderful fabrics for a new caleidoscope project. I also enrolled into their new BOM, a beautiful christmas wallquilt.

We also visited Lines Hobby (can`t find blog) were I bought three pieces of fabric. The black fabric is border fabric for my Manly quilt. The ribbons and buttons on the left side was purchased at Stoff og Stil in Drammen, on our way down.

Have fun sewing!

  5. Litt missunnelege på alle som har slike flotte butikkar innan rekkevidde. Ikkje heilt det same å shoppe i nett-butikkar. God helg.
