Go Tell it at the Quilt Show!

Check it out! We’ve posted 7 new Go Tell It at the Quilt Show! videos on our YouTube channel. The formula for these Go Tell It! videos is simple: one person talking about one quilt in front of one video camera for three minutes.

We’ve created Go Tell It! interviews with quilt makers, quilt owners and even museum curators. Some interviewees tell the story of their first quilt, the history of a special family quilt, or one with a funny story. Whatever the “teller’s” motivation, every quilt has a story and the Quilt Alliance is eager to document, preserve and share that story, for the education and inspiration of today’s quilt lovers and tomorrow’s historians and genealogists.

Here are a few of our newest Go Tell It! uploads. You can check out our Go Tell It at the Quilt Show! video playlist here for more great videos!

Go Tell It is currently being piloted with the help of quilt show organizers like QuiltCon and Original Sewing & Quilt Expo. In the future we will offer simple training on how anyone can create and share their own Go Tell It! videos, as well as the opportunity to Go and Tell It at future quilt shows and events. Questions?

The Quilt Alliance is a nonprofit 501c3 organization established in 1993 whose mission is to document, preserve, and share our International quilt heritage by collecting the rich stories that historic and contemporary quilts, and their makers, tell about our nation's diverse peoples and their communities. In support of this mission, the Alliance brings together quilt makers and designers, the quilt industry, quilt scholars and teachers, and quilt collectors to further the following goals: To promote the understanding of the quilt as an important grassroots art form. To make information about quilts available to a broad public. To educate the public about the importance of documenting quilts and quiltmakers so that their stories will not be lost.
