On your marks, get set, quilt!
Every year, the European Patchwork Meeting organizes its own International Contest, open to all patchwork makers all over the world.
In 2022, the organization wishes to appeal to the imagination of the artists, with the theme “Once upon a thread”.
Tell us the stories of your childhood! Highly colorful and full of twists and turns, dive back into these tales that have marked you. Take a fresh look at these textile stories and find the heroes, monsters, nightmares and dreams buried in your memory or your imagination. Threads, materials, textures and colors will inspire you to express these scenes and characters from world famous books or family legends. It’s up to you to find the thread of this textile story to come!
