I am astonished at the amount of condescending ignorance and clear snobbishness this particular article exudes. I seriously doubt the writer did even a miniscule amount of research to learn anything about the quilting world today, which can be found in abundance with a few simple Internet searches. Would this writer, who obviously feels it quite acceptable to insult those who quilt and appreciate the historical significance of quilting while clearly not knowing who he or she is insulting, even be aware of the tens of thousands of people...men and women of all ages...who are involved with this artistic and expressive activity? I doubt it. Does he or she know that American quilters spend more on their sport than gun owners, golfers, and fishermen? I am quite certain he or she does not. Chiefly, the writer exhibits an attitude that is not only ignorant but antiquated. Go do your research, Mr/Ms writer! THEN, apologize for your insulting and ignorant article.
