Exposition in Bergen

November 2012 we happened to have our first exposition. It was very exciting!
We were kindly asked to exhibit our embroidery with Russian twist in Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Center, Bergen.

NERSC was celebrating the 20th anniversary of the affiliated Nansen-Center in St.Petersburg, thus the Day was dedicated to Russia.
The Nansen Center is an independent non-profit research foundation (Bergen, Norway).
The Nansen Center conducts basic and applied research with focus on marine
and polar environment.
