She was asked by the organizers of Carrefour Europeen du Patchwork in Alsace, France to curate and deliver a show of Canadian quilts to the 18th annual festival this coming September.
Sandra has worked very hard to represent what is happening in Canadian quilting. Her exhibit covers nearly every province and territory of this huge country, and includes traditional, contemporary, and one or two textiles that merely hint of roots in the quilt.
She picked me up from the bus, took me to dinner in one of her favourite restaurants and entertained me with story after story of the adventures that led up to and continue to surround this project.
As we read the just published article together, I realized that this remarkable individual is a dedicated and fearless advocate for Canadian quilt art.
