Fun with Nikolina at the Watnemo Farm – Northern Minnesota

It seemed only fitting that Nikolina’s adventure should start with Roz. Here is her first adventure!

Nikolina spent the weekend at the Watnemo farm in northern Minnesota with Harold and Roz.

She kept busy with picking strawberries, riding on the 4-wheeler, rock climbing, and having a coffee party with Grandma Carol and her friend, Martha.

Nikolina got to celebrate the 4th of July by raising both the American and Norwegian flags.

Nikolina enjoyed relaxing a bit too and even helped Roz design and stitch a Hardanger project for the next Retreat!

She said she is ready to start her travels and looks forward to meeting people around the world and going on exciting adventures with them.

A few more invitations to visit arrived while she was on vacation with Roz. Nisse and her travel agents will put her itinerary together next week and contact the hosts to be sure the schedule works and she will begin her adventure. There is still time to get on Nisse’s schedule.

Send her an email at and be sure to put “Nisse” in the subject line.

Nordic Needle Nisse

Last newsletter we talked about the traveling Nordic Needle Nisse. She has arrived and her name is Nikolina. Here she is standing in front of some of our fabric. She has a spoon and bowl because it is important to feed your Nisse to keep her happy. Before she starts her travels she will also have a needle and stitching project, so that she will have the right tools for whatever her host/hostess wants her to do. She stands about 5.5" high. She’s getting excited about traveling around to visit Nordic Needle friends! If you would like to learn more about hosting Nisse, please please send an e-mail to her. Be sure to include "nisse" or "hosting" in the email subject! We’ll be figuring out the beginning of her travel itinerary soon! She’s ready to pack her bags and hit the road visiting our friends!
