    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.

    Italian lace very big article you can also just scroll to see pictures and read just the bits explaining the types.
