Meet Your Host...

Hi, I'm Miriam!

The scarcity of resources on quilting with African Fabrics was the deciding factor for me when I first hosted the Quilt Africa International Summit in 2020.

I believe African fabrics have a place in the world of textile arts and it is important to share the stories, patterns and colours of African Fabrics as a reflection of the African way of life and culture with the whole world. 

The Quilt Africa International Summit has an educative element where we make room for the conversations that need to be had about the intersection of culture, values and creativity.

We also have fun, get hands-on and learn so much!

Grab your ticket and join me, our speakers and presenters and let's explore this year's theme - Your Art, Your Voice.

This is a one-of-a-kind event that will help you embrace African fabrics, push your creative boundaries and let your voice be heard through your art, not only in your community but all around the world.

I can’t wait to see you there!

Frequently Asked Questions

What will I learn at the Quilt Africa International Summit?

Quilt Africa International Summit is all about giving you the best inspiration, ideas and knowledge to create your best works with African Fabrics; and creating a community where you feel right at home.

There are lots of quilting shows, workshops and conferences and other resources out there about quilting and textile arts, but this summit will specifically cover the use of African Fabrics. 

This year we will focus on our theme, Your Art, Your Voice, but we also have excellent workshops on traditional piecing, creating a memory quilt, portraiture and more.

It is for every fabric lover!

If you’re curious about African Fabrics, this event is for you!

We’ll be specifically talking to quilters and other textile artists and focusing on our theme Your Art, Your Voice, but anyone else who wants to get started with African Fabrics is welcome to join us.

The main portion of the summit runs from July 5-8 2023.

However, the speakers will be hanging out during their sessions and also in dedicated chat rooms where you can connect with them and ask your questions!

I still have questions! 

If you still have questions, we encourage you to go ahead and sign up.
