I am again pleased to be a sponsor of the Alliance for American Quilts Houston intiative.
This year at the International Quilt Festival in Houston, Texas (November 3-6), a team of volunteers lead by the nonprofit Alliance for American Quilts will interview 64 Texas quiltmakers for the Quilters' S.O.S. - Save Our Stories (Q.S.O.S.) oral history project.
I am pleased to have been the exhibit sponsor for "If These Quilts Could Talk: Samples fromthe Q.S.O.S. Oral History Collection" at the Houston Internation Quilt Festival. This was a very special exhibit of fourteen quilts made by quiltmakers interviewed for Q.S.O.S. In the special exhibits booth, you could hear the actual interviews with the quiltmakers. To learn more about this wonderful organization, visit www.allianceforamericanquilts.org. Pictured in the photo from left to right is Amy Milne, Sandi Goldman, Meg Cox and me (Lisa Ellis). We are standing in front of mentor and friend, Vikki Pignatelli's piece called "Creation of the Sun and Stars."
