|Brinda at the Quilting |
Workshop at Chiang Mai
- Introductions first I suppose. Tell us a little about yourself Brinda and which part of India you live in.
I turned 60 this year and as I look back I see how full my life has been. I have 4 daughters, all independently ‘settled’ as they say in India, one in Mumbai, 2 in Bangalore and 1 in Bangkok! I am a grandmother of 2, and they provide me with ample opportunities to sew things for them! Most importantly I have a wonderful husband, who has encouraged and supported me throughout my life, and encouraged my passion for my sewing! I live in Kolkata. Professionally I run a Charity, VAANI - Deaf Children’s Foundation that works with deaf children and families across 6 States in India.

|Tina on her 40th!|
The second in the Quilter Spotlight series - Tina Katwal lives in Chennai and is a part of the India Modern Quilt Guild. She blogs at Holy Scrap! I think my first interaction with Tina was when she asked me about the Traditional Quilting Workshop in Bangalore. We've only interacted on email after. I really like Tina's work and I'm very impressed with how much she does! She's a business woman, a wife and mother and she quilts a fair bit! And... judging from the picture she sent me of herself... she's cool too! :)
Many thanks to Tina for taking the time to put down such enjoyable answers to my many questions.
1. So Tina, could you tell us a little bit about yourself, apart from the quilting?
Oh, I’m just a lucky recently-turned-40 yr old mom of two very sensible girls, wife of a Neanderthal :) who loves me insanely even after two decades, owner of a small business in fancy cycles and fitness equipment, living by the sea in one of India’s best cities, AND having the luxury to be able to quilt sometimes. Also adoptive mother to a hamster named Bunny (!) and four fish. I blame all my eccentricities on my being an Aquarian. My husband blames my parents though. :)

13 Woodehouse Road. I found Shruti's blog in 2010 and was very impressed with how much she'd achieved in the short time since she began to quilt. She's a doer this one! :) And an enabler. She's been an inspiration to many aspiring quilters in India and has even started the India Modern Quilt Guild that has a growing number of members. Here's my interview via email with Shruti.
