Quilt Exhibitions for an Enjoyable Life, Kamiooka, Kanagawa, Keikyu Department Store, April 25-30, 2012
We participated in this exhibition because of the introduction of JCQA member, Maeda from Hokkaido. The venue was small with limited space, so our group only exhibited 10 pieces along with other groups’ work. We selected 10 quilts from JCQA executive members.
The names of artists who exhibited:
Takako Ishinami, Katsumi Ishinami, Yasuko Saito, Akiko Suzuki, Yoshiko Takagi Keiko Toyoda, Yumiko Mandai, Keiko Maeda, Asako Maeda and Miwako Mogami
The Japan Contemporary Quilt Association (JCQA) organized raffle quilts by members of the group in order to support the victims of the Tohoku-Pacific Ocean Earthquake
Raffle quilt means people purchase a raffle ticket for the purpose of donation and the winners chosen by a drawing receive the donated quilts.
In order to help people suffering from unpreventable natural disasters our members donated quilts, as something they could do to help.
Thank you very much for those who supported JCQA Raffle Quilt activities and purchased raffle tickets. We also appreciate JCQA members who provided quilts for this activity.
Thanks to all who purchased raffle tickets; we sold 320 tickets, and received 320,000yen. This money was donated to the Japanese Red Cross Society on Monday, July 4 as a donation to the disaster area. We drew the names of the winners of the quilts on July 11. The quilts were sent from the artists to the winners during July.
