Stitched Stories of Texas Quilters

Stitched Stories


Quilting has long been a quintessential storytelling tool; a comforting means in which stories are created, shared and preserved through the textile arts. Texas Folklife is pleased to present this exhibit to highlight the heritage, craftsmanship and lore of these cherished textiles and their long history with Texas culture. 

 

Stitched Stories of Texas Quilters is now live! Enjoy the exhibit hosted on Smithsonian Learning Lab Collections.
