I have become an oral historian. Who would have thought that quilting would lead me to this? But it has, and I’ll tell you how. I’ve been involved in the Talking Quilts project for the past five years. Pioneered in the UK by Pauline Macaulay, Talking Quilts is based on an American model called Quilters’ Save Our Stories (QSOS). You may have already read about this project in The Quilter (issue 139, Summer 2014 and issue 143, Summer 2015), but just to remind you, Talking Quilts is a grassroots effort to save the stories of British quilters by recording, preserving and sharing today’s quiltmaking history in the UK.
I want to talk about what being involved in this project has meant to me personally.
