TEXTILE FAIR

Saturday, we went to the textile fair (see my last post).We had a wonderful time. The weather held. On the morning it had been raining but as we got there, the sun was shining. Here are some impressions:

The first two pictures are from Sabine Taubert-Jüttner ´s stall. She had very nice felt objects.













A bit later I came upon Wiebke Steinwedel´s stall. She had very original cardboard boxes with felt. And I liked so much the colours and the way she had arranged everthing that I had to take a picture.

Then came Ute Senkel-Weinberg ´s stall. She had wonderful cross-stiched and petit-point works. Not that I would do something like that but very nice to look at. I still bought some variegated embroidery thread for a redwork.

As I saw Dagmar Clever´s stall I had to take a picture! I didn´t buy any fabric though.








Then I went to Frauke Kafka´s stall for ribbons. I bought some wide and narrow ones of different colours. It is difficult to choose as they are all so lovely.










Finally I found Birgit Schauer´s stall where I bought some perls. Only 4, not all these ones!
At a book stall, I also bought a japanese patchwork magazine. I can´t resist these ones!
All in all it was a lovely day and I will certainly go back next year if I can.

Gwen - those ribbons are wonderful - so much prettier than the plain ones we get here in the UK - I love the ones with the ladybirds on

I would have gone bananas in the ribbon stall, that's for sure *lol* Looks like you had a wonderful time.

Than you for yor comment on my blog. I used to wear Birkenstocks when I worked at a hospital a few years back - but then we could only buy white ones, and through the hospital. But after you and the Chicken Lady reminded me of them, I had a quick search on the internet - and what do you know; they have opened a shop about half an hour from where I work! Lunch break expedition!!!

Oh-- the ribbons! I would dearly love to be able to purchase ribbon like that here. The strawberry ribbon is fabulous, I could easily buy the entire spool!
