Threads Worth Thinking About

The St. Louis University News published an article about Quilt National 2013 on September 25 entitled Quilted art: Threads worth thinking about. The author, Emily Drenovsky said:

“The internationally diverse quilters of Quilt National use their craftwork to make broad thought-provoking statements about the world. The show has the power to inspire students to make a difference on a local level with their own gifts and talents.”
