I've often wondered if anyone in Italy quilts. All 4 of my grandparents came from Italy and not one women in my family made quilts besides me

There Are quilters in Italy but its not a traditional craft. Its also very expensive since all fabrics are imported (mainly USA and Japan). There is a guild - Quiltitalia which holds regular regional meetings and quilting days which are great.

Its extremely kind of you to offer to support this addiction.
