Quilting in Israel

This Spy has been having marvelous time of craft, color and comradeship!
The Israeli Quilter's Guild is hosting it's yearly conference in Jerusalem. There are about 350 members in the guild and we gathered from all around the country for workshops, lectures and a sharing of skills and expertise. What a wonderful group of ladies and an exciting time together.
Here is a clip about the evolution of quilting in Israel and the recent quilt entries in honor of the 100th anniversary of the kibbutz movement:

There were many hands on workshops taught by experts in the field.This Spy took the Machine Quilting class taught by Eti David. What patience she has! Such a confident teacher! I learned so much~ and the class was even taught in Hebrew! (not sure which pleases me more... that I understood the lecture or that I am able to machine quilt!)

That's Eti, standing with her back to us.

Everyone busy sewing

Good cotton quilt fabrics are hard to come by in the Land. BUT there are three great shops and they brought their wares for us to indulge in! Too many temptations....

Such Yummy fabrics!

Too, too many choices!

  Planning my next quilt~ This one for us!

We'll be back later this week with more
lovelies from the Land!
