Check it out! We’ve posted 7 new Go Tell It at the Quilt Show! videos on our YouTube channel. The formula for these Go Tell It! videos is simple: one person talking about one quilt in front of one video camera for three minutes.
We’ve created Go Tell It! interviews with quilt makers, quilt owners and even museum curators. Some interviewees tell the story of their first quilt, the history of a special family quilt, or one with a funny story. Whatever the “teller’s” motivation, every quilt has a story and the Quilt Alliance is eager to document, preserve and share that story, for the education and inspiration of today’s quilt lovers and tomorrow’s historians and genealogists.
Here are a few of our newest Go Tell It! uploads.

Go Tell It is currently being piloted with the help of quilt show organizers like QuiltCon and Original Sewing & Quilt Expo. In the future we will offer simple training on how anyone can create and share their own Go Tell It! videos, as well as the opportunity to Go and Tell It at future quilt shows and events. Questions?
