Session #3, Program
Arts Revive will be hosting Common Threads on both days, so we are grateful to this organization for allowing us to enjoy Selma and the growing arts-based revitalization going on in the downtown area. Agnes Pool, author and master quilt maker, will present on "It's Documentation Time" in order to provide everyone with the tools they need to record family heirloom quilts and treasures. Author, archivist and Chair, Alabama Black Heritage Council, Ms. Frazine Taylor, will present on documenting family history. After lunch in the Old Live Oak Cemetery, we will have a grand Show and Tell session, so bring 2 or 3 quilts, but no more. Stories limited to 2 minutes. Experts including professional quilt appraiser and quilt historian, Mary Elizabeth Johnson Huff, will assist. We will review "clues" such as materials, design, techniques, size, and contextual historical factors to determine our case report.
