Quilting in Today's Japan (in-store)

Originally from England, I have lived over 25 years in Japan. While raising my family and living in Japan I went most years to the large Tokyo International Quilt Show, as well as to smaller shows in Yokohama. I visited local flea markets buying Kimonos, Yukatas and indigo fabric scraps.

My talk and slide show will be a little glimpse on everyday life in Japan, and a lot of wonderful photos of the amazing Japanese quilts from various quilt shows. I also talk about how Japanese art and culture has developed over the last century, and especially quilting. I share the system of how quilters may study years under a Sensei. I’ll discuss the types of fabrics Japanese quilters often use, and you will be able to see all these used in my detailed close up photos.

I hope to be able to answer questions you may have if you are considering visiting this amazing country and the Tokyo International Quilt Festival.
