Quilter Spotlight: Shruti Dandekar

I don't live in India at the moment but there is so much happening there that I feel I must document on my blog. So, I am hoping that I will be able to write more about quilting and quilters in India and keep this blog going. I'm starting a series of interviews with quilters in India - the ones I can reach via email at least - and here's the first one - Shruti Dandekar from 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.

Where I used to shop in Okalipuram

So I've been asked where I used to get my fabric from in Okalipuram and here's where:

Shree Ranuja Textiles
# 1/1, 1st Cross, 1st Main Road,
Ramachandrapuram, Bangalore 560 021


They have some really good stuff but look around in the rest of the market as well. There's good stuff everywhere! :)
