Quilting and I

BY NUR AHMAD
@ VOL 8 ON SEP 24, 2016

“There is a human cost to what we wear."

In "Quilting and I" from PechaKucha Night Bandar Seri Begawan Vol. 8, Nur Ahmad urges us to reconnect to the forgotten creative skills of sewing through quilting (it's just squares and straight lines - a good place to start!).  She hopes that will eventually lead us to the merrier path of knowing what we wear, understanding the real cost of our fashion choices and hurry us along to finding alternative sustainable textiles.

How to hide your art hoard from your significant other while staying in denial of your maladaptive coping strategy.

BY LORI MASLEY
@ VOL 17 ON JUN 06, 2019

Lori Masley is a Physical Therapist by profession and confirmed math/science geek who finds her creative balance in quilting. What began as an initial attraction to the geometry and precision of traditional quilt patterns soon turned in to an obsessive desire to accumulate fabric. The need to conceal the extent of her stash inspired further creativity in the task of hiding it from her long suffering husband who knows what's good for him.
