Hello friends of the Quilt Alliance!
This year at Festival, the Quilt Alliance is planning on filming more of our Go Tell It at the Quilt Show! three-minute videos with show entrants, as well as recording our longer-form QSOS interviews.
The Go Tell It project has been especially popular in years past, and is a simple videotaped interview project that follows the formula: “One person, one quilt, one camera, three minutes. Another quilt story saved!” Our interviews from last year's Festival are here.
We're looking for interviewees that might be interested in sharing their quilts with us, whether they have a quilt in the show or want to bring a quilt with them to Festival to talk about. We'd love your help spreading the word--we still have lots of open spots for both Go Tell It and QSOS interviews!
The signup form is here: https://quiltalliance.formstack.com/forms/iqf2015
If you're able to share on social media, or on your website or email list if you have one, we'd love to draw more interviewees (we currently have only 1!) I know many of you were a big help to us last year finding interviewees, so if you know of anyone that would be interested, please send them our way.
