Well, I think my sewing machine is getting rusty, just standing on the table for the last six weeks with no movement at all. In the meantime I went to visit my mum in Prague and also visit the Prague Patchwork Meeting. I go there for several years now, but I haven’t seen the event so full like this year. I was trying to take some photos of the wonderful quilts on display, but after a while I gave up. It was totally impossible to take an “only quilt” photo. Visitor crowds were found in all sections of the location, well distributed between the quilt exposition, fabric and template shops or stands with sewing and quilting machines. This time I had a close look on the Bernina stand. I got detailed information about the high end sewing machines and could try my sewing and quilting skills. What a luxury, something to dream about! I think I must start saving for a Bernina 770 QE.
The Easter here in Spain was very cold and extremely rainy. But I was lucky to attend a golden wedding anniversary in Germany and we had the most beautiful Easter weather since years. The few days I spent near Bonn were a real retreat.
Two weeks ago I went to Alicante to visit a patchwork exhibition of the clubs in the Alicante, Murcia and Valencia regions. It was located in the old building of the Alicante railway station. So many nice quilts to admire and there were also about 20 fabric and patchwork shops. In the center there were tables and chairs so that the clubs could spend a day together working on craft and sewing projects.
Hopefully next time I can share with you some new sewing or quilting projects!
