Patricia Belyea: The Alluring World of Japanese Yukata Quilts.
Time & Location
About the Event
Patricia will take us on a virtual tour of the Tokyo Quilt Festival. Then to a chusen-dyeing workshop where we will watch the elaborate hand-dyeing process. Patricia will finish with a trunk show of her quilts made with Japanese cottons and how the fabrics inspired her quilt compositions. She lives in Seattle, WA.
A creative quilt maker, speaker and teacher, Patricia co-owns Okan Arts with her daughter Victoria. (Okan means "mom" in Japanese.) The small family business imports vintage Japanese textiles for adventuresome quilters. They also run an online gallery representing national quilters. Patricia is the author of East-Meets-West Quilts, a book about making improv quilts with Japanese fabrics.
