One of the early supporters since Day One of the Curve Master has been The Cotton Patch, a lovely quilt shop and mail order business, in Birmingham, England. Last year I was their guest in The Cotton Patch stand at Festival of Quilts in Birmingham, England. Again this year I will be the beneficiary of their hospitality at Festival of Quilts at the NEC in Birmingham from August 19 – 22, 2010. I have found that our cousins “over there” are very avant garde in all fiber art techniques. There was the first time I had seen gorgeously dyed silk worm pods, Oliver Twist threads and yarns, much fabric stamping and embellishing, layering and then burning fibers to expose the underlying layers, and too many other sophisticated applications of mixed media and techniques to describe. I was overwhelmed and admittedly surprised. I admit to being ethnocentric about quilting…it is American isn’t it?! Well, no….
Here is a Giveaway sponsored by The Cotton Patch and appearing in Popular Patchwork magazine, a publication well worth your exploration for a mind expanding view of quilting.
And here is a quilt submitted by one happy customer of The Cotton Patch:
I will remind you nearer the date but mark your calendar now for Festival of Quilts, August 19-22, 2010, at NEC Birmingham, England. You will enjoy it and The Cotton Patch booth. I understand they have a lot of things planned for this year. How can they possibly top last year with Amy Butler and Kaffe Fassett? I can hardly wait!
