The range of signature cloths in the IQSC in Nebraska is amazing, there are over 70 examples in this one collection alone. I am looking forward to curating an exhibition there this Sept.
This is the latest collaborative signature project on display at Touchstones Gallery, Rochdale until March 2014.

See my Remembering Emily post for background information. This cloth was part of the Wilding Festival on the 15th June at St George’s in Bloomsbury where Emily’s memorial service had been held. It was carried in the procession by her descendent and draped in the church where her coffin had stood 100 years ago. Thanks to Sarah Evans @ artwithaheart
The Remembering Emily cloth petition will be displayed at the People’s History Museum on Sat 8th June as part of an event about EWD.
One of my kantha pieces has recently been acquired by the Denver Museum of Art for their new textile gallery.
A busy year with three major conference presentations in Delhi, Liverpool and Virginia. The last was “From Bengal to Baltimore” a quilt conference in Williamsburg, Virginia.
My article on the signature quilts research appeared in the May/June issue of Selvedge Magazine.
