Public Television Program About Quilting

On Saturday, October 29 at 9:00 AM Iowa Public Television (IPTV) will begin airing a documentary called Why Quilts Matter.
"This new documentary series focuses on why quilts are bigger than you think, seen through the lenses of history, art, and politics. For the quilter, collector or casual observer, the nine episodes take you behind the scenes and into new territory, exploring the centrality of the quilt in American culture and revealing the unsuspected size, breadth and depth of the quilt culture."

The first program is "Quilts 101 - Antique and Contemporary Quilts" Learn what makes an antique quilt more valuable and why contemporary quilts are judged differently.
For more information about the program, including air dates and times, visit IPTV here.
