Jim West is a multi-faceted quilt enthusiast who travels the world interacting with quilters where he goes. He is the founder of Sew Many Places and publisher of Quiltposium online magazine. He is one of the most sought after travel experts in North America and one who has traveled 76 countries around the world and explored all 7 continents! It has been a journey for Jim, who has promulgated many changes in the Quilters world. Jim had this to say on Facebook:
“ Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming – wow … what a ride!”
Jim was recently in Kenya and the Kenya Quilt Guild enjoyed saying Karibu to him in our land! Jim illuminated some of the challenges we may have in traveling to Ireland for the International Quilt Festival of Ireland to be held this year. The Kenya Quilt Guild will have six quilts on display in the Patchwork Promises exhibition at the Festival.
Listening to Jim West as he speaks with Sharon Pederson on the quilt market, in one of his video clip samplers, gives a glimpse of what he carries in his heart concerning the International Quilt Festival of Ireland. Enjoy the video clip, and join us in Ireland in June!
Would this be the way out when you are too tired to load your pin cushion? Would it also be a good idea for managing your needles when sitting in for long hours at airports between flights?
Thinking out loud after watching this YouTube video about the Prym Needle Twister RedDot Design Winner 2011:
Many of us remember meeting Ricky Tims and Alex Anderson when they were in Kenya in January 2011. Few, if any of us will have an opportunity to study with either of them. This video, suggested to us by Princess Mutero, may be as close as we come! Find other wonderful quilting techniques on video at YouTube.com.
