All I can say is "wow." And not in a good way. This piece is so far off base I hardly know where to begin. I'm an editor for a national quilting publication, which means I am literally making a living from the quilting industry. I also happen to be a Nebraskan. Anyone here will tell you that Nebraska and the IQSCM have become Quilt Mecca for distinguished experts from all over the world. Quilts matter because of economic history, political history, military history, art history, women's history, textile history…shall I go on? Next time do your homework, please.
