Festival International des Textiles Extraordinaires

Here is a link to one of many pages about the festival.  You can see the quilt that our guild donated:

If you click on a picture it will enlarge.  There are other pages with photos but nothing
would load on my computer.

  1. Oh it's so wonderful to see this! Thanks for sharing, and thanks for putting such a beautiful quilt together! I hope it made lots of money... Such a great cause.

  2. Loved seeing these photos...and the "progression of creations"...also loved your label, Margaret. Just wish I could have been in France for the flash mob picnic and auction!

  3. Well done Margaret! Looking at the dates, is the picnic this coming weekend? I hope they film it!


    Saturday 20, Sunday 21 and Wednesday 24 from 12 am to 4 pm

    Strollers are invited to share a friendly time over a picnic on a patchwork blanket made for the Festival.

    Friday 26 and Saturday 27, 10 am to 6 pm

    Presentation of the quilts that will be put at auction by Maître Bernard Vassy, auctioneer whose auction house in Clermont-Ferrand was founded in the early 19th century


    Sunday 28, starting at 10 pm

    Maître Bernard Vassy, auctioneer, runs a sale with ten quilts made before the Festival and coming from the whole world, for the exclusive benefit of Doctors Without Borders
