Hi, I am Shruti Rohit Dandekar, a Quilter by profession and an artist in my heart.
A Bachelor in Architecture from Pune University, I have always loved quilting. I founded the India Modern Quilt Guild and am also the Regional Representative for India & SE Asia at SAQA (Studio Art Quilts Association). I am also the only Brand Ambassador BERNINA (Switzerland) and AURIFIL (Italy) in INDIA and am the Author of ABOUT face - portrait quilts using the reverse appliqué technique.
I started with upcycling old clothes into furnishings when I took a sabbatical following a bout of Chikungunya in Diwali 2009. I gradually taught myself to quilt and started my first brand "13 Woodhouse Road" in 2011. I launched my new brand "Shruti Dandekar" in 2016 solely for my art quilting works.
Besides quilting, I also teach about the art of quilting. I travel across the country conducting workshops on the various styles of quilting. I am also on the verge of starting a mentorship program for creative entrepreneurs in India.
