Jim West of Sew Many Places is Chairman of the Festival.

Part of the Patchwork Promises team, our Kenya quilters include Martine Chamorel, Grethen Sanders-Mwaura, Rajminder Kalsey, Gill Rebelo and Kundan Pattni.  This team and others are being coordinated by well-known Irish quilter Nikki Foley.  We will be excited to see what wonderful quilts they make this year, under Nikki’s guidance, to go to Ireland from Kenya next year!

Many thanks go to Alex Veronelli and the Aurifil Thread Company for supplying thread for the quilts.  Kenya’s quilters are learning the value of top quality materials in their work, thanks to Aurifil!
