6th Annual Quilt Exchange [ Tokyo ]

(6 Entries)
We, the Patchwork and Quilt Circle, focus on making quilts, small accessories and hanging decorations with traditional Japanese fabrics. We exhibit our creations throughout Japan. We enjoy breathing life back into the kimono fabric, forgotten family treasures which have been passed on from generation to generation. We consider this concept our theme. This is our 6th time to participate in the Honolulu Festival. We are now working hard at making patchwork and quilts for the upcoming Festival.

We will once again hold the --Eternally Blooming Flower-- Preserved Flower International Design Contest this year.

Attracted by the lovely art of hula, we volunteer to perform hula in welfare related activities in our community.Our goal is to participate in the Honolulu Festival to promote cultural exchange. We would like to share our friendship with volunteers in Hawaii and contribute to establishing a special bond between Japan and Hawaii.

A young samurai captivates her heart and the two fall in love. A surprising fate awaits them. Keiko Matsuzaka is one of Japan's leading actresses.

The hands of ancient Japanese people created and carried on the Temari-making tradition to the present day. We will pass this art on to the next generation. We have participated in the festival consecutively to show this Japanese traditional handicraft to people all over the world, and to provide a chance for you to experience the art of Temari-making. We are hoping that more students will have a chance to experience Temari-making this year.
