Saturday I’ll be in Duluth, Georgia at the Georgia Quilt Show. For this event I’ll be wearing my Alliance for American Quilts hat, conducting an on-stage interview for the Q.S.O.S. (Quilters Save Our Stories) project. I haven’t met my interviewee, Kim Montagnese, but just checked her out online and I know she’s going to be a blast. On her help page she gives emergency contact info by this picture:
Uh huh, a hoot for sure!
Here’s her bio:
“Kim began playing with fabric and sneaking the use of her mom’s “forbidden” sewing machine in the early 70s. Long before great fabric or creative classes were available, Kim was forced to make it up as she went along. She came to love the look of hand appliqué, but lacked the patience. Fortunately, a series of mistakes led to the method she uses today. Students love the “no curved piecing”,” inside out” and “quilts that keep on giving” concept of quilting. Kim loves the AhHa! moment students experience and has felt privileged to share the fun for the past 15 years.”
If you’re in the area, come see us live at noon on stage at the Georgia Quilt Show. We’ll be making history with Kim’s interview. It’ll be published online and archived at the Library of Congress. Go quilters!
