Support QSOS to celebrate 2+ decades of preserving the story of quilts and their makers.

Over the past twenty-one years, the QSOS project has documented and more than 1,200 interviews with quiltmakers worldwide. Those nearly twelve hundred voices tell stories of creativity, artistry, patience, grief, love, joy, and seam-ripping! They capture the story of two decades of quiltmaking.

The Quilt Alliance is dedicated to bringing these voices into the next decades by making interview recordings available online with rich description, enhanced searchability, and an online presence that makes finding, browsing, and sharing interviews easy. But we can't do it without your help: nearly 900 cassette tapes have recently been digitized by our partners at the Louie B. Nunn Oral History Center at the University of Kentucky Libraries. Quilt Alliance staff members are now preparing these interviews to be viewed on the website.

Sponsor an interview

Make it possible for us to share another quiltmaker's voice with the world by sponsoring a QSOS interview. Your donation will help us cover the cost of preparing an interview to be made available on our new QSOS platform.That includes the costs associated with file formatting, transcript editing and indexing, and web hosting.
