In February, member Neena K sent me an article about the Gee’s Bend quilters. Then about a month later, Linda G sent me a link to a video about the Gee’s Bend quilters. It seems the quilters are back in the news and are finally reaping the benefits of their notoriety. The video is a news clip from WPBS, a PBS station that serves northern New York. The article comes from “The Verge” which is an American technology website that is operated by VOX Media.
You can watch the video and read the article by clicking on the buttons below. I would watch the 9-minute video first because it will give you context for reading the article. A big Thank You to Neena and Linda for sharing this news with us!
I would be curious to hear your thoughts about this. Please feel free to comment below.
