Nadelwelt Karlsruhe 2019

 NADELWELT in Karlsruhe, is a big event which offers its visitors a balanced mix of sales event, art exhibition and has a comprehensive course program for patchwork, sewing, embroidery, knitting, cross stitch, crochet, spinning and much more.

I was invited to have an exhibition of my Textile Art at Nadelwelt Karlsruhe 2019. The event took place from May 3 till May 5.

On Wednesday we loaded up the car with my quilts and coats and 5 display stands. We arrived at the hotel in Ettlingen near Karlsruhe in the afternoon. Ettlingen is a lovely place with a nice pedestrian area with shops and restaurants.

On Thursday we drove to the exhibition area Messe Karlsruhe to hang my exhibition.

I had a beautiful space right at the entrance of the Event. Very light and spacious!

Friday , the first day of the exhibition was extremely busy, There were coaches from all over Germany, but also Denmark and France. The official opening time was 10.00 a.m. , but when we arrived there were already many visitors inside!

Each exhibitor had a sign at the side of the stand.

In the afternoons I taught a "workshop mittendrin " So right in the middle of my exhibit.

On Saturday there was a WDR film crew who took some shots of my workshop.

This group consisted of German, Dutch, and Norwegian participants which led to some mixed up language. We had great fun.!

On Sunday it was quiet, so I could take a look around myself. There were a great number of interesting exhibits to see!

In October I received a copy of The Norsk Quilteblad with an article on the exhibit. Great!

I had a great time at Nadelwelt, I can certainly recommend you to visit one time !
