American Quilt Study Group brochureThe AQSG is a scholarly organization devoted to preserving quilt heritage.

Every year they have a big seminar, where quilt enthusiasts, historians, researchers, collectors, authors, folklorists, curators, dealers, and traditional and contemporary quilt artists get together for a few intense days of engagement with quilt history, social context, and design.

The seminar travels, and this year it’s going to be held in San Jose, just ‘over the hill’ from here. Several of my friends are members and there’s some big excitement that the seminar is coming to northern California. I volunteered to help out so I might get to be a fly on the wall.

The seminar takes place October 1-4. For more information and registration forms, go to the AQSG website and click on Seminar.

Until next time,
