A Quilt Show in The Faroe Islands!

We could hardly believe our luck when we discovered this show! The Faroes do not have a quilt shop but they have lots of yarn shops and everyone learns to knit from a young age. The quilt show displayed the work of  Jongerd Perkhus, an 80 year old who also stitched pictures of her beautiful island environment. Unfortunately, these were framed with non reflective glass and could not be phographed well.

The setting was stunning, in an old warehouse in Torshavn harbour. The display will be taken down on 26 August.

Enjoy the photos!
