Quilt With Us

Came across a interesting documentary on quilts that is coming to pbs stations this fall. I thought I would share the link:Why Quilts Matter

Thanks for the post! I am assisting with the project and just want to give you a little information about our relationship with PBS.

The series is independently produced and funded. It is being made available to PBS stations, through an independent distributor, in addition to the programs already available to them from PBS. Each individual station makes a decision about whether to air it or not. At this point, it is too early to know whether your local station will air the series. I suggest you check your local listing or the station website to see if it will air.

In the meantime, you can check out our website,http://www.whyquiltsmatter.org for more information on the series or to purchase the DVD set.

Thanks for the interest

Thanks, Budsgram, for the link.  I watched the trailer with great interest.  PBS series are usually very well done and thought out.  I did have to chuckle, however, when the promoter said that quilters "would walk right by George Clooney to get an autograph from Ricky Timms."  Oh, yeah, sure I would!  I may be a quilter, but I'm not an idiot!

Today at guild meeting, we saw the movie "Stitches"; about the quilt artist(s) and the Houston quiltshow, the International quiltshow and Paducah quiltshow. It highlighted three quilt artists and their journey of making their quilts and the agony of entering into these quilt venues. The featured quilters each had their stories to tell. It was a fascinating look into the world of the quilt artist. Thanks for your posting of the upcoming link. That was also mentioned at our  guild meeting. I'm tuning it for these broadcasts.

Budsgram, thanks for the link.  I'd heard of this before, but hadn't looked into it.  As I was watching the promo, inspiration struck and I'm ordering this as a Christmas gift for my hard-to-buy-for MIL who also quilts. I think she'll really enjoy it and I'll enjoy either watching it with her or borrowing it later.  (Selfish motives, I know.)  I hope it is well done.

Budsgram--thanks for letting me know about this series.  We don't have cable or antenna so I don't get to see shows about quilting (Netflix is surprisingly limited in their selection of quilt-related offerings  ;) ).  I went to the link and it looks fascinating--and for people like me, it's available for purchase at a pretty reasonable price.   Can't wait to watch the trailer and clips!
