Quiltfolk Virtual Show-and-Tell

NEW EPISODE EVERY MONTH

Each month, Jenni Smith will feature talented makers from around the world, offering sneak peeks into their quilting projects. Episodes will be free to access on Quiltfolk.com so that you can watch them, and share them, as often as you’d like. 

We hope to grow the scope of this program, reaching more people from around the globe who may be missing the show-and-tells they might typically find at their local guild meeting. If you enjoy this first episode, we would love for you to share the video with friends, provide feedback in the comment section, and subscribe to the Quiltfolk YouTube channel.

In our third show-and-tell, we get a visual glimpse into the creative journeys of three passionate women. 

Elli Beaven (Greece), her husband, and their three children packed up their London home and set off to sail around the world; she shares that quilting provides her comfort, a reminder of home. Clara Nartey (United States), recently featured in Issue 17: Connecticut, reconnected to her life’s purpose through her art quilts; her mantra is to “make time, create your best work, and share with the world.” And Marian Edwards (Australia) spent 13 years hand piecing a Dear Jane quilt; once the quilt was complete, Marian shared that it was truly all about her personal journey and the memories made during the creative process.
