This year the Villa Burrus in Sainte-Croix-aux-Mines, will be under the spell of this Russian people, the Yakut, whose territory covers about a 1/5th of all Russia.
We understand that their delegation scheduled to be present at the EPM are organizing a number of special events in the Villa's gardens which will help you better understand their musical and folkloric traditions and to discover the specific techniques of their art, whether in making magnificent horses harnesses or traditional quilts.
For the third consecutive year the table cloth and household linen company BEAUVILLE will organize a prestigious and yet unseen exhibition which will give you the opportunity to discover some major and unique works which have been the benchmarks of its history from 1839 until now. Most of these works have never been exhibited.
In Ribeauvillé, in the heart of Alsace, the factories have been contributing for more than two centuries to the textile history of the region and perpetuate to this day, in France exclusively, the art of silk screen printing.
While SAQA's Wide Horizons IV contest continues its journey in the US as part of the QuiltWeek@ exhibitions organized by the American Quilter's Society (AQS) in partnership with the EPM, the exhibition Redirecting the Ordinary which will be presented for the first time in Europe during the next EPM has been already invited in partnership with us at a few venues in 2015-2016 even before its first viewing at the EPM!
To see this exhibition for the very first time in Europe, you will have to go to the Espace des Tisserands in Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines, where you will be welcome by SAQA members.
