Botswana Show

Here are a few photos of the Botswanacraft Gallery in Gaborone, Botswana.  Cindy Friedman of Fiber Revolution organized the event and transported all the quilts to and from Africa.    The show ran from November 12th – 20th, 2009.

This is the second time Fiber Rev has teamed up with Kalahari Quilts in Gaborone.

By now most of the exhibition pieces have been returned to the artists.  The exceptions were: one of Cindy’s own work, which was gifted to the Museum, and 2 that were sold: a gorgeous composition entitled “Hibiscus” by Jutta Halpin and my very own “Elephant”.
