The pandemic enabled us to think outside the box. We contacted our colleagues at other textile-related organizations to launch a weekly virtual lecture series. It was so popular, we continued it for another year!

Textile Talks features programming from the International Quilt Museum, Modern Quilt Guild, Quilt Alliance, San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles, Studio Art Quilt Associates and Surface Design Association. The programs are held online at 1 p.m. Central on Wednesdays. 

We continue to reach a global audience, with people tuning in from (a non- exhaustive list) United Arab Emirates, Turkey, Croatia, Uruguay, New Zealand, Australia, Denmark, the UK, Ireland, France, Portugal, Switzerland, Netherlands, Argentina, Germany, Ecuador, Mexico, Sweden, South Africa, Belgium, Norway, Austria, Ghana, Iceland, Jamaica, India, Lithuania, Greece, Sri Lanka, Chile, Japan, Romania, Canada and all over the United States. 

“Being able to experience a quilt exhibition and hear from the artist while living overseas is a treat!”

“Outstanding presentation! We are incredibly fortunate to have these Textile Talks at our fingertips. Thank you!”


“I am thrilled to be able to virtually walk through exhibits and hear from such diverse groups of artists during a phase of my life when mobility is limited.”
