End of the Year Giving-Quilt Research Collection

Time to think about end-of-the-year giving.

And here is where I just sent my money:

You might want to support the Quilt Research Center at the
University of Nebraska Libraries.

International Quilt Museum, Lincoln, Nebraska

The University of Nebraska is the world center for quilt history with two major collecting locations and focuses. The International Quilt Museum collects and displays quilts and related textiles in an impressive building adjacent to the campus.

The University of Nebraska Libraries collects quilt related archives in the Special Collections building called the Quilt Research Center.

Quite impressive storage and retrieval stacks.
Read more about it at this post:

As me and my friend Merikay Waldvogel (and many others) have been donating our quilt history files and personal archives to the Library we think you should send a check to the Quilt Research Center.

  2. I'd really like to know how Mary Ellen gets her hair to stay that high. Mine always falls down too quickly. LOL

    Thanks for the fun pictures.

    By the way, how does one unbutton those white gloves so just the hand is revealed? Very impressive.

  3. I joined the IQSG as an Associate. Did this last week. I'm excited to see all that this offers for 2021.
