Now is its ninth year, the London Design Festival, which runs from 17th-25th September 2011, has become a key event on the international design calendar. Although a central office provides umbrella branding as well as organising a host of talks and installations around the London, the event has always relied on a patchwork quilt of partners – from large corporations to independant designer-makers.
17th European Patchwork Meeting will be organized 15th – 18th Septembre in Ste Marie-aux-Mines (Alsace, France). On the show the visitors will see a selection of more than 1000 antique, traditional and contemporary works of textile art, from all over the world.
This edition is dedicated in remembrance of the Austrian artist Greti Raffeiner, member of the quinTEXsenz group, invited this year for the presentation of their exhibition in which she had participated. Unfortunatelly she died unexpected during last February, and everyone who knew her and her work will miss her kondness, sense of humor and an extraordinary talent.
