Annual meeting NQF

This weekend is the annual meeting in the Norwegian Quilter's Association. And yesterday Nemo and I took the bus up to Olavsgaard and spent the day getting lots of vitamin Q. The exhibition was great - lots of gorgeous quilts, both traditional and art quilts. Unfortunately we weren't allowed to take pictures to post online at the exhibition, but I thought I'd share some of the rest of the event :o)

This is some of the goodies we received when we registered:

And in the downstairs area a lot and lot of shops had stalls with plenty of goodies to choose from. This is the stall for Lappemakeriet - the LQS where my parents live:

Nemo is checking something out:

Anne Heidi was there with her shop Lappemor, and of course we had to stop by and say "hei" - she is such a sweet lady and it was so great to finally meet her in person. And she had finished her beautiful Truly Scrumptious and had it up on the wall, but of course I forgot to take a pic of it - but here is one of her and Nemo chatting in stead:

Of course I had to spend some money during the day :o)

In the evening it was a lovely dinner - more than 400 quilting ladies (and a handful of men) enjoying ourselves chatting and eating :o)

A big thank you to the organizers for a great day!
Hope you all had a great day too!
Sincerely, Anne Ida

Looks like a fun day was shared by many. I read Anne Heidi's blog too and am happy to find her photo in your post too. Quilt shows are the best therapy one could hope for.
