Behind the Scenes gives you just that: a peek behind the curtains of Quilt around the World. You will have the opportunity to get a glimpse of the making of Quilt around the World, our smaller and bigger successes and what in a film would be called an 'outtake'. You will, for example, be able to watch Johann sewing his first quilt block or Jutta getting desperate in the midst of piles and piles of scraps that refuse to get organized.
As we get occasional inquiries about particular book publications which we have mentioned in the past, we thought it would be a good idea to give you an update on what is happening behind the scenes in our "book department":
Quilt around the World is lots of fun for us here behind the scenes. At least on most days. When deadlines are looming or we are - again - way behind schedule with everything, life becomes hectic and sleep scarce and slightly agitated.
But all these little worries and anxieties are immediately forgotten when we get the opportunity to meet quilters we have "met" through Quilt around the World for real.
Invitation to "Open Quilthouse": "Handquilting - every stitch a pleasure"
On Friday, 27 May 2016 from 4 pm we will concentrate on handquilting in the Quilthouse Purgstall in Lower Austria. It's not only the continuation of a craft tradtition dating back many centuries, but also the discovery of the new slowness. Here, already the journey can be considered the destination.
... to all our readers, participants, supporters, team members and friends!
We are looking forward to more fun and excitement in 2016 and hope that you will join us in our sometimes surprising journey here at Quilt around the World!
for the entire Quilt around the World team
A while ago, the Austrian textile artist Michaela Mosmüller did a book signing for her first book "Wandelbares Element Wasser" ("Multifaceted Element Water"), published in co-operation with Quilt around the World at the Quilthouse Purgstall in Austria. The English version will be published in 2016.
We are very proud to announce the book publication "Water for the World - IBS2 Quilts on Tour" which will accompany the IBS2 Travelling Exhibition.
Due to many commitments, we have run up a considerable back log which unfortunately has resulted in some publication delays for My Year of Design and for 50pictures quilts. We apologize and strive to get up to date as soon as possible.
Should anybody wonder: The theme for the May edition of My Year of Design will be the art of the "old" Egyptians...
Finally - it's done! The English version of My Year of Design 2014 will be available shortly!
Jutta will teach several classes in the first half of 2015...
As you might have read in our newsletter, Jutta was invited to participate in the 2nd Ateliertage Waldtrudering, an exhibtion organized by a local group of artists in the Munich district of Waldtrudering. All of the artists opened their workrooms to show their latest artwork. Interested visitors could stroll through the neighbourhood and drop in to get to know the artists in person and watch them at work.
