A few weeks ago Kim Baird (North Dakota, USA) got into contact with the TRC about her visit to the TRC in Leiden last year, how much she enjoyed it and also our forthcoming American Quilt exhibition. She mentioned her work with the American Quilt Study Group.
This organisation was founded by Sally Garoutte in 1980. What began as a small group has now grown into a unique and highly respected international organisation. Its goal is to preserve the story of quiltmaking - past, present, and future, and it has become a major source of information about the study of quilts, quiltmakers, related textiles, and processes.
By way of co-operation between our two groups, and very practically, she sent 13 back copies of Uncoverings: The research papers of the American Quilt Study Group. These arrived today and are full of interesting articles about a wide variety of quilting subjects, not just American quilts. The journals will shortly be added to the TRC Library.
