Workshop: Egyptian Tentmakers Applique
Egyptian Tentmakers Appliqué is one of the oldest known forms of quilting. Tentmakers are artisans in Cairo that work with cotton fabric making intricate and unique designs. I lived in Egypt for 8 years and loved visiting and purchasing pieces from the Tentmakers. I look forward to sharing my collection, stories and photos of the tentmakers and the stitching traditions they are still doing today!
The beauty of the Tentmakers Appliqué is their crisp colors and beautiful designs. Learn to stitch like the Tentmakers, a technique that has been passed down through generations. A Messenger Bag will be the base to apply your choice of Tentmaker appliqué design of a Lotus Flower or Arabesque.
