More Grimstad fun

The retreat was a great success, everything went smoothly and people were enjoying themselves.

Lovely quilts hanging everywhere for us to admire and touch.

No retreat without shopping....

Or food! My favourite was the desserts, he he.

I took a class by Kari Melsom, and made star tablecloths. It was genious, we used three fabrics, and ended up with three totally different looks. Karis new book is coming out shortly, and I can`t wait to get my hands on it.

These are not mine, although I wish they were.

We manage to squeeze in a visit to the local quiltstore, Meretes Atelier, allthough she had a stand at the hotel. She has a lot of Green Gate products as well. The other shop present at the retreat was Quilten from Arendal. The staff in both the stores were helpful and friendly, it was a joy spending money there.

In my last post I showed you all my winnings. Here is what I purchased. Some of the fabrics has four different motifs! If that is not genious I don`t know what is.

Have fun sewing!
