very enjoyable day lots to see and spend your penny's on, it was busy as expected the quilts where awesome, home with bags of goods/ideas.My one moan was with Pfaff to long a wait for delivery so brought online,,Saving hard for next years show

Projectors in lectures too small, esp for those at the back. Pixel quilt from RSA had NO viewing instructions nor was a quilt steward available to explain it should be viewed thru a camera or mobile - many viewers walked past without 'seeing' it!

5 Aug 2016 Edition Joyce Hendriksen Reviewed on 15 Aug 2016 Arbeidsleder at Gamle Oslo Tre Og Tekstil
great show; needed more entrances to the halls; needed better map or more signs internally to find classrooms. Needed much larger t-shirts for us BIG WOMEN. Wished I had more time to see every thing!!
