Quilting weekend

This past weekend we had a great class at the shop- well it wasn't AT the shop- we couldn't fit all the ladies in our classroom there....

Bente Malm came all the way from Norheimsund to teach us how to make her lovely bag called "Ida's veske" (Ida's handbag) Here she's showing us something- notice how everyone is paying close attention!

On Saturday the sun was shining, and some of us brought our lunch outside to get some fresh air. Unfortunately the wasps liked the smell of our food- and I drowned two of them in my orange juice- about time we headed indoors again.... 
Here's B.M with the front of her bag all finished. If you're ever in the area and stop by the shop you might meet her there since she works with us :-)

And here's my mom working on the back of her bag

By Sunday afternoon almost everyone had their bags finished- We were so impressed!  Bente was such a great teacher, and everyone had a fun weekend sewing with friends :-)
This coming weekend I'll be going to Haugesund to teach a workshop using the x-block ruler- working on binding my last class samples tonight- I'll post pictures over the weekend.
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Looks like you all had a wonderful time and made great bags..look at all those smiling faces!

  2. Must have been a terrific class for everyone to have almost finished their bag. If I lived closer I'd be signing up for sure.

  3. Ser ut til at dere hadde en strålende helg med quiltedamer og symaskiner :-)

  4. LOve the bags and the smiles on the ladies. I can see why your shop is such a success, your the best!!!HUgs, Marie
