Quilters' Save Our Stories with Jane Hall
With the recent passing of Jane Hall at the age of 90, we'd like to share her Quilters' Save Our Stories (QSOS) interview from the Quilt Alliance where she discusses everything from quilting during difficult times to the functions of quilts, pineapple designs, and finding joy in quilting (which we think she did quite often).
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!"
From Quilters' Save Our Stories and the Quilt Alliance:
"Hall spends much of her time quilting or writing quilting books, and she expects to see change in the quilting community with the new wave of art quilts. She believes that preservation should come second to actual use."
