Quilts 1700 – 2010: Hidden Histories, Untold Stories

Estou entusiasmadíssima! Acabo de descobrir que, de 20 de Março a 4 de Julho de 2010, vai estar patente no V&A uma exposição de 65 quilts britânicos, elaborados entre 1700 e os dias de hoje. Os detalhes da exposição podem ser lidos aqui ; o catálogo já está disponível para pre-order na Amazon e em Junho haverá um colóquio de dois dias sobre o tema. Não posso, não quero e não vou perder isto!!
I’m so excited! I just found out that the V&A will present its first ever exibition of British quilts, with exemples dating from 1700 to the present day, from March 20th to July 4th 2010. You can read all about it here ; the catalogue is already available to pre-order at Amazon and there’s even going to be a two-days conference on the subject. I can’t, I won’t miss this for the world!!
