Following up on last year‘s extremely successful charity project Quilts Over Incubators donated to the new-born unit of Masarykova Hospital in Usti nad Labem, we are bringing you a new project.

Every year, there are various cushion covers being made for the children patients in the oncology department in Usti. However, there are adult patients too, often suffering from curable deceases, which however raise fear and concerns. They do have access to medication and professional care, but also need hope and mental support. It is very helpful to them knowing that someone cares and thinks about them. The support can be shown by donating a small cushion for the hospital stay.

A small cushion that will belong to them only and will stay with them throughout the cure process.

 

Almost 30 collections from all over the world showing the contemporary top achievements in patchwork and quilting will be presented to the visitors: from traditional quilts to gallery and museum items of art quilts.

 

The leading representative of European quilt art Mrs. Willyne Hammerstein, well known thanks to Millefiori quilts and La Passacaglia, that inspired hundreds of quilters, will offer not only a gallery, but an exclusive workshop on Sunday April 7th as well. Another Dutch quilter, Mrs. Will Fritsma shows a “women” gallery based on precise and innovative sewing and quilting. From Germany two invited artists will share their work: Christine Bünning presents Musical Quilts and Birgit Schüller a wide range of her master quilts. YUZA Sashiko Guild from Japan will be introduced to the visitors by Susan Briscoe. After few years Elisabeth Nacenta de la Croix from Switzerland returns to Prague, this time with shibori landscapes.
