Artisan & Guide
Carla's knowledge of Africa comes from being raised in both Canada and Kenya, volunteering as a nurse for three years in rural Serengeti, Tanzania, and living in Kenya for the last few years with her husband and three children. Picking up quilting as a hobby during her years in Tanzania when her children were babies, it is now her main creative outlet (you can see her work on instagram @kipindi_quilts). Carla is also the quilt designer for Amani Ya Juu, a non-profit organization teaching life skills and providing meaningful employment for marginalized women. Unashamedly obsessed with global textiles, quilts and their stories, Carla knows she is not the only one with a fabric obsession. She is excited to welcome kindred spirits on her safari.
