Quilts in the old Synagoge in Deventer 9 till 12 september

I can only say I had an amazing day in the Synagoge busy getting everything ready for the Dear Jane Quilt exposition.  I think the Dear Jane exhibition looks great.

Hope to see you during my show-and-tells about my antique quilts:
- Donderdag 10 september: 15.00 – 15.45
- Vrijdag 11 september: 15.00 – 15.45
- Zaterdag 12 september: 14.00 – 14.45
Locatie: Synagoge in de Golstraat

Here is just an impression of our activities.
 Picking up some of Jeltjes quilts from the 100 Roses, it's just around the corner, a 2-minute walk. Lucky we had good weather.
 There are so may amazing quilts in the synagoge, and see there is my very small quilt, I managed just 12 blocks of the Dear Jane and 12 blocks of the Amish Circle Quilts. Chapeau to the all quilters who finished the Dear Jane.

 Reinier and Roel, our strong men today.
 Coffee break!! We worked very hard today: Agnes, Jeltje, Sylvia, Reinier and Roel. But also had lots of fun. And I think we all can be very pleased with the result.
 What an amazing location. De synagoge was build in 1892, and is build in a moorish style. In 1941 the holy relics like the Thora were destoryed. In 1952 the synagoge was sold to the protestant-christian community. Deventer lost most of his jewish population in WOII. In 2009 the Jewish Community start using the old synagoge again for services.

And I forgot to take pictures in the coffeecorner, more quilts to see.
Hope to see you all in the synagoge!!!!!
