Quilters' Save Our Stories with Zak Foster

Today's Quilters' Save Our Stories (QSOS) program from the Quilt Alliance is one of their more recent interviews and features a quilter we have not yet had as a guest on The Quilt Show. His name is Zak Foster, and in his interview he discusses learning to quilt, making quilts using repurposed and found materials, and talks about his quilt, O, America!


From Quilters' Save Our Stories and the Quilt Alliance:


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!"
