Patricia Belyea of Okan Arts visited the Tokyo Quilt Festival this year and wrote a full report with loads of pictures including quilts bags, and a special William Morris exhibit. The International Great Quilt Festival, held the third week in January, is the largest quilt show in the world and attracts 235,000 visitors a year.

I attended the show and wondered why all of the quilt's info was in Japanese only. I thought that an Internatinal show was just that but it seemed that they were all from Japanese quilters> Loved the show but the language was a letdown
