The Japanese quilters are very special in the quilting world. Yoko Saito is one of them. I have always admired her work and her quilts have always been very inspiring for me. I had not seen Yoko Saito's quilts in real for a few years but as soon as I entered her booth, I was speechless and the feeling can be overwhelming. Her work is beyond words... I am not sure if one can really understand what I mean if you have not seen Yoko Saito's quilts in the flesh.
I was more than lucky to attend two classes with her. It was not my first class with Yoko Saito but I always learn something new and I think I could spend hours, days and years watching her handsewing. It is really impressive! She is a quilt master and if I were living in Tokyo, I would apply to become one of her students. Two 3-hour classes is way too short! But who knows, I may have the opportunity to attend a several-day course in the future??? Dreams sometimes come true ;-)
Admire the photos which are all mixed up as I kept going to the exhibition and could not stop admiring and photographing the quilts several times.
