Korean Bojagi Forum 2016

Korean Bojagi Forum 2016

I was very excited to have the opportunity to attend the 2016 Korean Bojagi Forum in Seoul in South Korean and to write about the event in The Quilter magazine (The Quilters Guild of the British Isles)  I have been interested in Bojagi for a long time having first come across it at the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham in 2009. The Forum was excellent and through attending lectures and workshops has expanded my knowledge greatly. As a teacher I have the pleasure of sharing knowledge and am looking forward to doing that with you through workshops and courses. Here is a link to the article The Quilter, Winter 2016, issue...
Bojagi Covering Cloth

Bojagi Covering Cloth

When Popular Patchwork magazine asked me to design a Bojagi Patchwork project I was delighted. From when I first saw Chungie Lee’s piece, No Name Women at the Festival of Quilts in 2009, I knew I wanted to find out more about this type of patchwork. Bojagi in Korean means wrapping cloth and is the over-arching name given to this type of stitched textile. I have since carried out a good deal of research and this year I am excited to be going as a delegate to the 2016 Korean Bojagi Symposium in Seoul. I’ll be sharing a post about that too. I designed this project using a contemporary piecing method of French seams and a traditional Setlam Sangchim, a hand worked stitch to close and decorate the edge. I hope you enjoy making the project. Follow the link to the article in Popular Patchwork Magazine December 2015....
