Guild Member Discount 40% for the documentary “Why Quilts Matter: History, Art & Politics”
If you are proud to be a quilter, you will want to own this series DVD!
We have created the first documentary series that reveals the centrality of the quilt to American culture. You will hear from an amazing group of academics, savvy dealers and passionate quilt makers who will share their intriguing ideas, personal experiences and sometimes-conflicting opinions as you go on an unprecedented journey beyond the “how to” and history of quilts.
Produced by the Kentucky Quilt Project, Inc., a 501(c)(3) organization, Why Quilts Matter: History, Art & Politics is independently produced and funded. Funds received from DVD sales after expenses will go toward future quilt projects.
The series (retail price: $39.95) is a 2 DVD set (250 minutes) containing all nine episodes plus bonus features exclusive only to the DVD including: The Swing, A Young Collector, Why This Series, Dancing Quilts, Cheap Date, Judging a Book by its Cover, Antique Shows: The Back Side and more.
We want guilds and their members to own the series and spread the word. We are offering guilds a 40% discount (guild price $23.97 each) on the purchase of four or more copies (plus shipping). Let us know how many your guild is purchasing by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get back to you to arrange payment and shipping.
