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

9880030977

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