Quilters' Save Our Stories with Sherri Lynn Wood

For today's interview from the Quilter's Save Our Stories (QSOS) program, we are focusing on TQS guest Sherri Lynn Wood. In this conversation with Karen Musgrave, Sherri talks about her quilt, Linda Susan Wood (1943-2003) Passage Quilt, a bereavement quilt that Sherri made out of her mother's clothes after she passed away.


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:


"Sherri Lynn Wood discusses her involvement in bereavement quilting. She goes into how and why she started her quilting journey in her 20s, selling quilts at a local farmer's market in Durham, North Carolina, before focusing on more spiritual and therapeutic aspects of quiltmaking. She describes how she juggles time between her art, her activism with End of Life issues, and a part time job. The interview ends with Sherri Lynn Wood reminiscing over how she would like to be remembered and how she feels about being a part of the quilting community."
