A Country Village in Hungary
Szentendre is a small village outside Budapest. It is home to many artisans and craft people. We visited on a bitterly cold day, the coldest for that date in 40 years. We navigated the cobblestone streets to find some treasures to take home. In the square is a Christmas tree and the village children were gathered to await the arrival of St. Nicholas.
As a quilt designer, the main thing I was looking for while I was in Hungary was traditional blue-dyed Hungarian fabric ~ a folk craft in itself. I found it here, the Kovacs family has been producing blue-dyed products since 1878. Their website is: http://www.kekfestokovacs.hu/.
The lovely woman in the shop allowed me to photograph the interior of the shop including the antique implements used to make the designs.
I can't wait to create something with my new fabric!
