The Quilts of Goa

Sujata Noronha, one of my favourite people in Goa, sent me this email and I'm happy to reproduce it here:
As part of an initiative we are involved with, we are organising a Godhadi Workshop with 4 traditional Godhadi wallis from Keri, Bali, Margao and Panjim at the Goa College of Home Science on Tuesday 31st am. The day is a collaborative workshop between the Goa College of Home Science, Research Institute for Women and the Needlecraft Group.
The day will begin with a brief opening and felicitation of 97 year old Godhadi walli from Santa Cruz, a presentation on Quilts of India by researcher Patrick J Finn, an exhibition of the Needlecraft Group's collaborative quilt themed on Goa, and exhibits of many traditional forms and styles of Goan godhadis and manes.
The sessions will begin at 10.00 am and end by 4. 30 pm.
Please come to learn more about this revitalisation project, meet these traditional needlecrafters, join the Needlecraft group and view the exhibits.
