The Quilt Alliance is excited to share that their first podcast. "Episode 01, First Quilts" of "Running Stitch, a QSOS Podcast" is now available on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, and Stitcher.
From the Quilt Alliance:
Running Stitch, A QSOS Podcast is hosted by Janneken Smucker, Professor of History at West Chester University. Join us as we explore quilt stories, revealing the inner thoughts, feelings, and motivations of contemporary quiltmakers by drawing from Quilters' S.O.S. — Save Our Stories, the long running oral history project created by the non-profit Quilt Alliance in 1999.
Quilts and quiltmaking serve as a lens to examine some of today’s most pressing issues, including activism, public health, politics, race, and the economy. We’ll dig into the QSOS archive to listen to excerpts from past interviews, and bring back interviewees to ask them about what they are working on and thinking about presently. Upcoming guests include Victoria Findlay Wolfe, Carolyn Mazloomi, Thomas Knauer, Melanie Testa, and Jinny Beyer.
