    Teresa promises a lively and fun lecture that will appeal to quilters of all types. Her presentation will cover the fascinating history of Japan’s cotton & indigo – two epic plants that changed the world. She’ll also talk about Japanese quilts made with very old & very new textiles and share the stories behind traditional folk textiles such as boro & sashiko 

    While researching her new book, Teresa was granted exclusive tours inside Japan’s esteemed textile printing mills and she’ll explain why some of the finest quilting cotton in the world is being printed in Japan.

    She’ll be bringing her new book “Cotton & Indigo from Japan” to autograph and sell. The book is a beautiful hard cover book filled with 300 images and gorgeous quilts.

    She’ll also be bringing a variety of Japanese quilting cotton fabric to sell, so you won’t want to miss this special shopping opportunity.

    10am meeting

    Let me be your guide on a walk through historical, political, and personal events that have inspired generations of quilters. In my presentation I reflect on quilters work and how they find inspiration to create, to express, and to mark milestones in their lives. The program is full of historical information as well as touching personal stories that many quilters can relate to. I bring along a large collection of quilts (over 50) that will entertain and inspire your members. I hope to inspire you with many reasons to continue to create and enjoy quilting even more than you do now.
