MYoD2 Travelling Exhibition

MYoD2 Travelling Exhibition

As you can see in the MYoD2 (MYoD15) space here at Quilt around the World, we have accelerated the publication rhythm with the entire part 17 online already now and part 18 to follow in the next few days.

This is in preparation for the MYoD2 Travelling Exhibition which will start in June 2016.

We are very happy to have been invited to three different venues to show quilts and textile pieces inspired by MYoD2. We are still working on addingto this list and we will include more destinations here as we get accepted.

Nadelwelt 2016, Karlsruhe, Germany: 10 - 12 June 2016

The deadline for submitting work is 20 May 2016. This is also the cut-off date for the exhibition catalogue as we need to take high resolution pictures of all work to be exhibited.

The deadline for submitting work is 30 August 2016. We cannot promise that there will be an update of the exhibition catalogue for any work submitted after the Nadelwelt (but we will do our best!).

The final date still needs to be decided. We expect to have a ca. 2 week exhibition at the Quilthouse Purgstall in Austria. As soon as we have fixed the date, we will let you know.

As a thank you for lending us your work, you will receive a free copy of the MYoD2 book (based on the online version, but completely revised and with sevarl exercises as yet unpublished) plus the exhibition catalogue (photo CD containing pictures of all exhibited work plus patterns for the Mystery blocks).

For everybody not yet registered for MYoD2015/MYoD2: Please note that you will not be able to register for MYoD2 anymore after 30 April 2016.
