Men and the Art of Quilt-Making by Joe Cunningham
What are they thinking?! The first professional quilters were men, participants in every aspect involving the production of textiles. Once quilting became a 19th-century hobby and artistic pursuit, women became the predominant enthusiasts. Now there is a steadily growing collection of male quilt artists. What are they thinking? What are they creating? Is it different from what women quilters do? Moderated by Kristi McMillan, Adult Programs Manager.
