Quilts in Kentucky: Quilters' S.O.S. Save Our Stories

Research guide focused on quilt and quiltmaking resources available at UK Libraries and within the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

Quilters' S.O.S. Save Our Stories

Quilters' S.O.S. - Save Our Stories (Q.S.O.S.) creates, through recorded interviews, a broadly accessible body of information concerning quiltmaking, both present-day and in living memory, for scholarship and exhibition. This grassroots project continually captures the voices and stories of quiltmakers and posts the transcribed interviews here. Our downloadable how-to Manual has everything you need to conduct your own Q.S.O.S. interviews. Our archive for the original audio recordings and photographs is the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress.
