It have been 5 years since I stopped doing patchwork. From 1996 to 2007 I was used to do quilting every day, I made friends, get involved in themed events and participated in courses, after about 8 year I was teaching others as well. Then suddenly a terrible nausea began prevent me from making patchwork: there was nothing to do, I simply couldn't quilt, so I put rulers and cutting mat waiting for better times. For three years I sew bags and accessories till the birth of my little in 2009, then I put off the sewing machine and began to knit busily.
Suddenly, a few weeks ago, the love for the patchwork get back again. And what better occasion to celebrate this with the FVG Quilting Day on saturday, June 10, 2012?!
It 'was a beautiful day, full of emotions, I saw people who had not seen for many years and met new interesting fellow quilters.
The quilters, like all creative people in general, have a special passion, a big heart and a quid I can't explain, I want to quote Francesca Pontoni when she says "Quilters like to be together".
It 'was a wonderful party, with many interesting workshops
a tempting Quilt Shop area
a beautiful show and tell
a catering and appreciated organizing team worthy of the highest praise.
and oh, you can recognize a traveler quilter from her trolley, don't you?
and ehy, quilters also wear fantastic shoes :)
