Support QSOS to celebrate 21 years of preserving the story of quilts and their makers

Over the past twenty-one years, the QSOS project has documented and recorded more than 1,100 interviews with quiltmakers worldwide. Those 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.
