The Quilt Alliance has put together a list of quilt destinations across America to add to your bucket list. If you visit one of them, share it with the Quilt Alliance. You can share photos and stories on the Quilt Alliance Facebook page. Or mail them a postcard and they'll share it.
 
Included in the list are Quilt Story Road Show stops. What is that you ask?
 

The Quilt Alliance will visit quilt guilds, art groups, museums, quilt shows and communities that have quilt stories to tell (if you'd like to bring the Road Show to your area, send then an email at info@quiltalliance.org). When groups come together with them to celebrate their community’s history, they all come away inspired, with reignited creativity and excitement.

Their lecture includes not only educational material on labeling and other ways to document quilts (photo, video, text), but also information on why historians, collectors and museum professionals put such a high value on documentation.
