Quilters’ S.O.S. – Save Our Stories, a project of The Alliance for American Quilts, is adding to its collection of more than 550 interviews! Karen Musgrave, Alliance board member and chair of the project, will be interviewing 30 members of the Latina quilting group Los Hilos de la Vida (Threads of Life – loshilosdelavida.blogspot.com) in Boonville, California in March. These women have been making compelling story quilts for many years. For more information see http://www.centerforthequilt.org/qsos/qsos.html or contact Karen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
