Birmingham

Birmingham was fantastic! It was my first time at a Quiltshow in England. I'm going back next year, for sure.



This is my traveling companion Sissel. We stayed at the Hilton Metropole next to NEC.

First stop - shops! I had a good budget and my plan was: Shop till you drop :-) So many shops!


This is the sweet ladies at The Button Company. I think I have an assorted button collection to last me in to the next century :-).


Not only English shops at the show. This is Quilters Barn Australia. I think this was the only shop with stitchery patterns. Stitchery is very popular here in Norway.

This was an interesting shop called Worn and Washed Fabrics. The shop was filled with collections of reclaimed fabrics in ready-to-sew packs.


I spent 3 days shopping and enjoying all the different exhibitions. So many beautifull quilts, interesting quilts, strange art quilts, ugly quilts, "things" that I hardly could call quilts and young quilters work. Filled with impressions it feels like I need another week to go through my photos and catalogs.

Hugs from Nancy
