This week's Textile Talk features a quilter you're probably familiar with. That's right, Carole Lyles Shaw, who was just our guest on The Quilt Show, is now the guest of the Quilt Alliance and participating in Quilters' Save Our Stories (which we also feature in our Sunday Newsletters). Join them and learn "why every community should use this grassroots documentary project to save the stories of quilters." Register today and watch when this episode airs this Wednesday, February 22, 2023, at 2 PM EDT.


From the Quilt Alliance:


"Join us for a Quilters’ Save Our Stories (QSOS) interview with award-winning modern quilter, fiber artist, and workshop teacher Carole Lyles Shaw. QA Project Manager Emma Parker will present the QSOS interview with Carole and explain why every community should use this grassroots documentary project to save the stories of quilters.


QSOS is an oral history project founded in 1999 by the nonprofit Quilt Alliance. It is the largest collection of first-hand accounts of quiltmaking, both present-day and in living memory, in the world. Our archive for the digital recordings is the Louie B. Nunn Center for Oral History at the University of Kentucky Libraries. The original audio recordings and photographs are archived at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress. You can read and listen to QSOS interviews on the project website here: qsos.quiltalliance.org/gallery."


This Textile Talk takes place, Wednesday, February 22, 2023, at 2:00 PM Eastern Time. Future installments are held online at 2 p.m. Eastern (11 a.m. Pacific) each Wednesday.


The video will be recorded and will be able to view later.
