Sale information

ONLINE ONLY - "Boston/Strasbourg Quilt Project" from 19/03/23 to 03/05/2023 18h

Two works of patchwork are the fruit of a collaboration between women impassioned of sewing of both sides of the Atlantic within the framework of the twinning Boston-Strasbourg. About 40 women from both cities exchanged their work. The Strasbourg women chose the theme of flowers and the Boston women decided to make stars. In Strasbourg, they work in a traditional way by hand, in Boston they are modernists and use sewing machines. With the same components they will create two very different works.

Come and discover them - come and admire them - during the two conferences.

The proceeds of this sale will allow the associations to continue to create projects.

This beautiful concretization of the twinning is the fruit of the collaboration between four associations: Alsace-Etats-Unis, Boston Strasbourg Sister City Association for the organization and the Patcheuses d'Eckbolsheim and the Boston Modern Quilt Guild for the making of the works.
