50pictures on tour: Nadelwelt Friedrichshafen

Logo Nadelwelt Friedrichshafen

Having already exhibited at Nadelwelt in Karlsruhe several times, we were of course quite excited about the premiere of Nadelwelt in Friedrichshafen on the shores of Lake Constance.

For our 50pictures exhibition we had thought up a special hanging method this time: We mounted the mini quilts on photo cardboard boxes with a concrete wall look. The grey wall panels of our gallery were a perfect match and staged the small quilts very well.

Jutta and Johann are precisely aligning the works

Jutta and Johann had already taken the time to prepare all the backgrounds and attach the title cards, so that the assembly could be finished in just a few hours.

It was only so quiet in our gallery before the doors opened...

Our book publications and information material for the new online course "Bauhaus 1919-2019" and the new join-in project "archiTEXTure" filled two whole tables.

Our gallery was situated very close to the entrance. That's why the organizers chose this place for a large format invitation to their new quilt competition "The Golden Needle":

This competition is taking place for the first time this year and is open to all ambitious quilters from all over the world. There is no theme, no special size restrictions, only three categories (traditional, modern/contemporary, art). Group quilts are also welcome. All submitted works will be shown at a special exhibition at Nadelwelt 2020 in Karlsruhe. Registration for the competition is open until 31 December 2019 at www.goldene-nadel.art. Participation is definitely worth it!

We had a few busy, but also very interesting and eventful days at the Nadelwelt in Friedrichshafen, met old quilting friends, had many nice conversations and made numerous new contacts.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the PARTNER Medien team for inviting us to this premiere and for their professional support before and during the event. We felt very welcome in Friedrichshafen and are looking forward to next year!
