LandHausLeben Langenlois September 2013

Schloss Haindorf

Brigitte Cerny of Stoffzauberei, Zöbing, Austria, contacted us in autumn 2012 asking whether she could exhibit some of the IBS1 quilts at an event she was co-organizing for September 2013. The first tentative plans were already being drawn up at that stage and as our second home country, Austria naturally was high on our wish list for locations to show the quilts.

LandHausLeben  is a combination of exhibition and shopping opportunity, mainly for soft furnishings, clothing and decorative objects. A lot of visitors came and we were asked lots of very interesting questions especially from very appreciative non-quilters. Should you ever be in the area, go visit this great event - and take a big wallet with you!
