Quilting Day FVG 2012

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?!

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”.
