Quilters' Save Our Stories with Pauline Salzman
Pauline Salzman is interviewed this week for the Quilters' Save Our Stories (QSOS) program from the Quilt Alliance and comes from the Houston Quilt Festival back in 2000. In it, Pauline talks about a wall hanging she made which she'd like to update (wouldn't we like to do that with all of our quilts), and how "a good quilt must tell a story and be technically sound."
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:
"Pauline Salzman describes the quilted wall-hanging that she brought to the show and how she wants to redo aspects of it. She reflects on gender issues in quilting. For her, a good quilt must tell a story and be technically sound."
