We have such an exciting opportunity for you textile creatives out there!

With the huge success of 2018's Quilts for Hitachi Project, we are again collaborating with our sister-city Hitachi, Japan, to bring you another incredible opportunity for international exposure.

The Hitachi City Hall requires about 5 quilts from the Bay of Plenty for exhibition on 15th February in Hitachi, Japan. There are no guidelines, so feel free to submit a quilt of any design.

Please note: this is a request for EXISTING quilts. You will receive your quilt back after the exhibition. 

Last year, the Hitachi Exhibition had 2000 people through - and featured several beautiful Tauranga quilts! Your quilt could receive this exposure - don't miss out on this amazing opportunity!

Email if you would like to participate. The only conditions are: we need your quilt/s by 1st February (there is a little wiggle-room but this is optimum to ensure they arrive in Japan in time for the exhibition). You only need drop your quilt off to us at The Kollective, 17th Ave - Creative BOP will handle the shipping.
