We hope you’ll forgive us for focusing this week’s post on ourselves, but we have some very exciting news to share!

You asked for it, and we’ve done it!

Why Quilts Matter: History, Art & Politics Discussion Guide is a comprehensive, group-friendly guide created to help you “continue the conversation” about the landmark nine-part documentary series that has aired on more than 200 select PBS stations…and it’s available right now!

This NEW 56-page, full-color, softcover resource includes thought-provoking questions geared to each episode and designed to stimulate animated post-viewing discussion of the Why Quilts Matter DVD. Perfect for quilt and fiber-arts groups, libraries, classrooms, and museums, the Guide includes episode-by-episode questions specially tailored for:

  • General audiences
  • The quilting community
  • Artists and arts organizations
  • Academics and college students
  • Middle and high school students
  • Museums

Enjoy the series and then use the Guide, with its stimulating, audience-specific questions, to discuss the series–episode by episode–with friends, students, colleagues. The Guide also features a special “How to Host” section to help you organize your viewing and discussion group. How easy is that?

One last thing we’d like you to know–and it’s an important one: The funding and production of the Why Quilts Matter: History, Art & Politics Discussion Guide was accomplished using profits from sales of the DVD documentary Why Quilts Matter: History, Art & Politics and through the generosity of many supporters and volunteers, including exclusive industry sponsor Hoffman California Fabrics International.
