Textile Talks: The Back Story: Go Tell It at the Quilt Show! and the Secret Lives of Quilts, Presented by Quilt Alliance
Behind every quilt, there's a story--sometimes more than one! The Quilt Alliance's mission is to document, preserve, and share those stories. Join Project Manager Emma Parker for a talk about one historic American quilt's backstory, and why quilt documentation matters. She will share examples drawn from the Quilt Alliance's oral history video project, Go Tell It at the Quilt Show!, and tell you how to document your own quilt's important story. Alliance director Amy Milne will introduce Emma and share three key steps that every quilt owner should take to help us achieve this vision: No More Anonymous Quilts.

May 27, 2020 02:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
