Why Quilts Matter

Why Quilts Matter is a fantastic Series on American Quilts, making them, collecting them,  and the marketplace, hosted by Shelly Zegart and airing on selected PBS stations.  Sadly, not my PBS station. 

BUT--this wonderful 9 part series is currently available free for members of March 31, 2012. Check this out:   Ricky Tims and Alex Anderson created this world-wide community a few years ago and I've been a member since before it began.  I cannot sing the praises of this website/community enough.  Lifelong friendships have been made, there are amazing free classes available all the time, the forum is a wealth of information for everyone from beginners to professionals.  And, of course, every 2 weeks there is a one-hour show featuring the best, brightest, newest, most well-known, quilt teachers and makers who offer great information for all--some very modern, some artsy, some very traditional.  I often say, if I had to seriously watch my quilting dollars, this is the LAST money I would give up--it is that valuable to me. There is so much more on the site, I am just touching the highlights here.  No affilitation, just a very satisfied member!

So, if for no other reason than you can watch all 9 segments of Why Quilts Matter, I strongly encourage you to join now and catch them before they go away at the end of March.

Let's Quilt!

  1. Barbara, I'm so glad you shared this! Too bad our PBS affiliate isn't carrying the series. I wonder why?! :)
