Helen Stubbings Talk.

Last Thursday, the 22nd of August, I went to Oslo for the day.  The weather was great, and I came across a really good craft fair in the town centre with lots of pottery, jewellery, wool items and more.  I had a lovely time just wandering around the stalls for an hour or so.

At 4pm I met my friend Åsa, and we headed off by underground & bus to a quilting talk arranged by Katherines Quilte Stue.  They had quite a lot of items from their shop for sale and 150 people turned up to the event.  Helen Stubbings was there to show us lots of her wonderful quilts and other items.

We had a show and tell of some of her projects made by people that attended, and it was great to see the variety of colours that people had chosen to use.

Helen told us about the techniques she uses in her quilts, as well as showing us lots of examples.  She gave a really interesting talk which everyone enjoyed.

This quilt had several hundred hexagons in it and some lovely stitchery, and was really beautiful.
