Tokyo International Great Quilt Festival 2020 – I grew up sewing and knitting, so I love crafty events such as this one. Even though I am not a quilter I am planning on attending this event to inspire new ideas for projects. Each year has a theme – this year is the “Fabric, Needles, and Thread Exhibition.” If you are a quilter, fabric lover or have an aspiring quilter in your family, this is a fun show to attend. Not only a great show of quilts, but suppliers and workshops as well. Happy Stitching.
