"Pour l'Amour du Fil"
Hall XXL – Parc des Expositions de la Beaujoire – NANTES - France
April 20th to 23rd, 2016
For lovers of needlework, the upcoming Pour l'Amour du Fil show in Nantes, France, promises to be a real treat. The venue halls will abound with classes, exhibits, vendors and more, all designed to inspire quilters, knitters, embroiderers, and those aficionados of needle arts.
With this year's theme, "Cherry Blossoms," it is no accident that the show will include Yoko Saito (learn about Yoko Saito in Show 1505) and beautiful quilts from her most recent QUILTMANIA book, "My Little Japan."
There will also be traditional quilts by Linda Collins, Jane Lury & Linda Koenig. Wonderful embroideries by Brian Haggard (Show 1106), Australian quilts from Margaret Sampson George & Brigitte Giblin, and the amazing Boutis by Kumiko Nakayama, along with many other American and European artists.
Come and meet the artists, enjoy the demos on TV screens, classes and workshops by artists from all over the world, mini workshops from 1 to 2 hours (sewing, knitting, embroidery…) and more.
In the shopping area, over 100 exhibitors from different countries will welcome you, so don’t miss this wonderful edition with splendid exhibitions, a creative mood, lots of surprises and especially the pleasure of a show not quite like any other.
Enjoy a video from last year's show; it's in French, but its main language is Quilting.
