“Japonnais” by Annie RESSAN
Aurifil prize during QUILT EN SUD 2009
Quilt en Sud was created in 1997 by a small group of friends who wanted to promote the patchwork and quilting from the Southern countries.Since then, every other year, St Jean de Luz, a charming village by the sea in the Soutwest of France, very close to Biarritz, hosts this event.
10 exhibition sites with international artists, a fashion show, demos, attract people from all over the world and specially from Spain and Italy.
Aurifil was sponsoring the regional contest and very happy to reward Annie Ressan for her quilt “Japonais”. Annie was delighted to receive a box of 48 spools in various colours and she promised that she was gpoing to some of them to quilt her next creation.
Next show will take place in May 2011 and hopefully Aurifil will be there again!
