Craft Fair/Handwerkbeurs

 The craft fair (handwerkbeurs) in Zwolle opened its doors again last weekend. Last year Jasmina and I went there for the first time and we had a ball attending workshops and looking at all these fabulous crafts. It makes you want to buy; but I've learnt not to be an impulse buyer so I did alright.

First project: a heart

Then quilting:

Here Jasmina learned paper piecing. We both made a label.
Paper piecing is a way of sewing through the lines on paper to do detailed block designs without any cutting of template pieces.
We had to finish them home.......
 The finished  result.
Textile Art
Next we made a small wall hanging using different fibers and tyvek.
Jasmina's creation
And last...dry felting
Jasmina made a little mouse.
Isn't he cute?

We have been so busy that time slipped by. Before we knew it was closing time, so no time to shoot some pictures of the fair but the two below.

  1. such a grand excursion for you two; lovely photos Geke. I'm sure this is a wonderful memory for Jasmina; I love her heart and mouse. Nice to share the day with you here in cyberspace!
