Whew. You all are amazing… have I told you that before? You kept me hopping BIG TIME over Black Friday. I think I’ll do it again next year. In the meantime… here are some more video interviews from the International Quilt Festival.
The Pfaff Master Award for Machine Artistry
Sponsored by Pfaff Sewing Machines
by Ximo Navarro Sirera
of Canals, Valencia, Spain
Mr. Sirera is a lovely and gentle man. I stood around long enough to find someone to translate for me. His work was well deserving of the award. He told me he’d only been quilting for 5 years. This treasure took two years to create. It was his “distraction” while he underwent treatment for cancer. We are so glad he is still with us.
The Gammill Master Award for Contemporary Artistry
Sponsored by Gammill
by Linda Anderson
of La Mesa, California, United States
I didn’t get the chance to talk to Linda Anderson but her husband, Steven Gadon, who was manning the white gloves when I stopped by and was happy to chat about this spectacular piece of work.
Enjoy the work of these two artists!
