Tilda’s World

After the excitement of 17 Mai Norway Day, in Oslo we were again on the move, this time to Tjome.

Lunch was pre booked at Verdens Ende (Worlds End) Spisereit. This was literally the end of the road and we had amazing views and superb food.

The picture below shows the old lighthouse. The basket was filled with burning hot coals.

At 2.30 we arrived at Tilda’s World to be welcomed by Tone Finnegar, the designer, we had not expected this. Tone then went onto teaching a lovely workshop using her fabrics to make birds. Here we have a short video of the project.

This was held in a old Norwegian house which they had recently converted into meeting and display rooms. It was very tastefully decorated and showed off her products beautifully. For obvious reasons we cannot display photos as we saw many future fabric designs and patterns. However, Tone has approved the following photos from the house for me to show you.

They also provided refreshments, goodie bags for each of us and there was a sales table to further entice the group. This visit exceeded all our expectations and the group are all inspired and buzzing with enthusiasm.

Thank you Tone, Torje and Anne for our amazing experience. We are the first group to visit Tilda’s World and it was a real privilege. You made us sew welcome and we have many wonderful memories!

This is the view as I am writing this blog at 9.15pm.
