The passion for quilting
As always, there will be many events at Bergamo Creattiva 2023. Starting with the Fashion Half Marathon, a competition organized as part of the event and now in its seventh edition. During the event the young designers will compete for three days in a “needle and thread” duel to create a dress inspired by the theme established by the organizers. On the final day, after parading on the catwalk, the three best dresses will be awarded prizes. The partnership with Juki has been confirmed, which has been supplying the machines for sewing the marathon runners’ creations since the first edition, as well as the prizes up for grabs for the winners.
Juki Italia, in collaboration with Promoberg, which organizes the Bergamo event, Inch Entimetri and Stoffabrics, will also propose the new challenge “Bicolor Quilt Festival”. Neither a competition nor any other form of competition, the event simply aims to share the passion for patchwork in an adventure that will lead each participant to create a quilt, according to their own taste and style.
In fact, the objective of Bergamo Creattiva 2023 will be to share the passion for the art of patchwork through the creation and display of quilts just like true works of art.
Still on the topic of quilts, the Quilmart market fair, organized by TTS Quilt Fabrics, will also take place among the collateral events. In the Patchwork Area, located in pavilion A, it will be possible to find numerous stands of companies in the sector with a vast assortment of Patchwork fabrics, accessories, padding, books, patterns and everything necessary for this hobby.
