Quilting and I

BY NUR AHMAD
IN BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN

“There is a human cost to what we wear."

In "Quilting and I" from PechaKucha Night Bandar Seri Begawan Vol. 8, Nur Ahmad urges us to reconnect to the forgotten creative skills of sewing through quilting (it's just squares and straight lines - a good place to start!).  She hopes that will eventually lead us to the merrier path of knowing what we wear, understanding the real cost of our fashion choices and hurry us along to finding alternative sustainable textiles.
