Quilters' Save Our Stories with Carolyn Mazloomi

The Quilters' Save Our Stories (QSOS) program from the Quilt Alliance brings us another riveting interview this week. Conducted in 2009 with Karen Musgrave, Dr. Carolyn Mazloomi, Historian, Curator, Author, Lecturer, Artist, Mentor, Founder, and Facilitator, talks about her quilt He Stands on the Shoulders of Many, a story quilt made for the 2009 exhibit "Quilts for Obama" at the Historical Society of Washington, DC, as well as the Women of Color Quilters' Network, which Mazloomi founded in 1985.

 

What are Quilters' Save Our Stories interviews you ask? "Quilters’ S.O.S. – Save Our Stories (QSOS) is a project of the non-profit Quilt Alliance. The project creates, through recorded interviews, a broadly accessible body of information concerning quiltmaking, both present-day and in living memory. Our archive for the original audio recordings and photographs is the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress. QSOS volunteers from across the country conduct and transcribe these interviews. We appreciate their generosity of time and dedication to the project!"
