I just got back from the European Patchwork Meeting that is one of the greatest quilting events in Europe: http://www.patchwork-europe.eu/index.php
The event takes place in several villages in Val d’Argent, Alsace: Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines, Sainte-Croix-aux-Mines, Lièpvre, Rombach-le-Franc. During 5 days, historical buildings, village halls or places of worship are the theater of a unique event dedicated to the textile and the patchwork.
This was my second visit to the EPM- I was there last year by a complete accident. This year I planned my trip ahead and also I was an active participant: my quilt Underground River got accepted into Wide Horizons exhibition:
Also three of my quilts were exhibited at Quilts of Latvia. I live in Lithuania but I am a member of Latvian Quilt Association.
Latvia was this year’s guest country at the European Patchwork meeting. We had an entire gallery for ourselves and were able to exhibit a variety of our quilts from very traditional to modern ones. I will share with you few pictures of Latvian quilts:
I had two quilts exhibited:
There were other quilts as well:
And many more. We were happy to show the world our art and receive a feedback.
It was a very intense week for me at the European Patchwork Meeting as well as visiting sites in Alsace. I see I will need to make two more entries into my blog- come back soon to read more!
