A week ago Sunday, I attended the Shizuoka Quilt Show, held on the 8th floor of the Isetan Department Store. The show was relatively small, but still a good show with a variety of large quilts. The admission was 800 yen, which I thought was very reasonable.
I had seen a few of the quilts before, made by famous Japanese quilters, at previous large shows I attended, but most were new to me. There were quite a few people and the quilts were arranged along a hallway, but I tried to keep my distance as best I could. Some quilts had some interesting details that needed to be seen upclose to notice.
This was one of my favorites.
This one was also one of my favorites
One thing I was surprised by and didn't like was that the quilts were all held up by push pins. Many of these quilts were very large and must have been heavy. I think the weight of the quilts on these little pins probably caused damage to the quilts.
There was also a good sized vending area, but it was terribly packed, and I didn't feel it was safe, so I didn't make any purchases.
