In this Textile Talk, attendees will sample programming from the last three years of Quilt Alliance’s annual virtual event Quilters Take a Moment. Watch excerpts of Quilters’ Save Our Stories oral history interviews with two accomplished and celebrated quilt artists: Dindga McCannon and Carla Hemlock. Watch Go Tell It! interviews with quilt collectors and museum curators about lesser-known gems in their collections. We’ll also show excerpts from a panel discussion about what it means to be a Quilt Keeper today. Quilt Alliance staff will end the program with a sneak peak of this year’s event--nine workshops over three days to help you step up your quilt documentation game, from photography to writing to labeling and record keeping.
Textile Talks features weekly presentations and panel discussions from the International Quilt Museum, Quilt Alliance, Studio Art Quilt Associates, and Surface Design Association. The programs are held online at 2 p.m. Eastern (11 a.m. Pacific) each Wednesday.
