My life and art partner, Nyls and I enjoyed every moment of the trip even when we our flight was cancelled and we had to shift to another airline. We rolled with the punches and made it to Yokohama in time to fall fast asleep in our Pan Pacific Hotel room. We had a chance to enjoy a great view of the Cosmosworld Ferris-wheel as it changed lights and kept excellent time.
Opening day brought large crowds focused on seeing the latest quilt creations and of course SHOPPING.
I was very pleased to see my work exhibited in such a dynamic way. Thirty quilts were included in the exhibit. I gave two lectures and participated in a talk show format with Naomi and Alice Beasley, the other other American artist. We had the good fortune to meet Jen Jones and see her collection of Welsh Quilts.
