FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Who is the Quilt Africa Summit for?
It is for every fabric lover! It is for quilters, textile artists, crafters. There are a lot of offerings out there, but this one has been created specifically for lovers of African fabric.
Why is there a fee for this year's summit?
This year, I made the careful decision to host the summit on a paid platform with upgraded features and other services to give you and our speakers the best experience possible.
This is to ensure that everyone, both you and the speakers have a very positive experience attending and participating in the event.
Having a third party service handling some of the aspects of summit planning allows me to avoid burn-out and exhaustion like the previous summits.
Are the presentations live?
Some of the presentations are pre-recorded and will be released at the scheduled time while some are live.
Whatever the category, the speakers will be available to answer your questions!
When is the summit happening?
The main portion of the summit runs from July 6-8.
The Quilt Africa Facebook community is our hub and is always available to you to meet up and rub minds with other creatives from around the world.
Is the summit recorded?
Yes, all presentations will be recorded and available on the summit website.
You will receive 6 months uninterrupted access once you purchase your ticket for the summit.
Please reach out if there’s anything we can do to ensure you’re able to enjoy this event.
I'm your host...
As an African who was not familiar with the process of modern day quilting, Miriam was fascinated with photos of the beautiful quilts displayed in Pinterest.
This led her to take the plunge and create her first quilt 5 years ago, using online resources as there are no quilt shops in her country.
The scarcity of resources on quilting with African Fabrics was the deciding factor in birthing the African Fabrics Movement and launching the annual Quilt Africa Fabrics Online Show and the virtual Quilt Africa Fabrics Guild/BOM.
Miriam lives in Abuja, the capital city of Nigeria in Western Africa with her husband and 3 children.
