Quilt History Online Course

There’s a new quilt history online course being offered by Dr. Sandra Sider that will give you a foundation.  The lecture series is being offered by the Texas Quilt Museum starting Feb. 1st.  If you make a donation to the Museum, you will be enrolled in the lecture series!!  It’s a bargain–the suggested donatin is $50 but any amount is accepted.

I believe VERY strongly that knowing your quilt history enriches your appreciation for the modern quilt movement.  It’s important to know your roots.

Here’s the link to the Museum page–scroll down to the Donation link:
