Giulietta's blanket

People attending Verona Tessile had an opportunity to help sew a patchwork blanket for Giulietta, as in Romeo and Juliet.

Her house on Via Cappello was set up with sewing machines from Bernina.

Participants, including children, men and women, embellished squares of fabric using the free motion technique. The finished blocks were spread out on the floor.

A member of Ad Maiora will sew the blocks together and present the blanket to the city.

The Canadians enjoyed participating. It means a part of their creativity will stay in Verona!
