This symposium will include quilt lovers, collectors, museum professionals, scholars, and artists to explore the ways in which quilts communicate cultural values, reflect cross-cultural transmission of style or techniques, serve as a medium for social connection or reflect and express environmental, artistic, scientific and technological influences of the society in which they were made.
