Textile Talks: Researching Quilt History with Barbara Brackman

Last month featured a fascinating Textile Talks discussion between celebrated quilt historian Barbara Brackman and host Janneken Smucker about researching quilt history. Come along and see what they had to share with each other.


From the Quilt Alliance:


Textile Talks features weekly presentations and panel discussions from the International Quilt Museum, the Modern Quilt Guild, Quilt Alliance, San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles, Studio Art Quilt Associates and Surface Design Association.


Have you ever wondered how quilt historians can unravel the story of a quilt with just a few threads? Do you want the inside scoop on how researchers look for “clues in the calico”? Join us for an interview with celebrated quilt historian Barbara Brackman. Our host, historian Janneken Smucker, will talk with Barbara about quilt history research and how it’s evolved in the 21st century, and about Barbara’s expanded edition of Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns.

This Textile Talks originally aired on Wednesday, February 24, 2021. Future installments are held online at 2 p.m. Eastern (11 a.m. Pacific) each Wednesday.
