Quilt Panel Discussion: Material Men Speak


While men make up only a small part of the quilting world their impact and contributions to the art of quilting have been substantial. Some, like Joe Cunningham, Kaffe Fassett, and Ricky Tims have become household names, and there are many emerging, innovative young male quiltmakers using a wide variety of fabric and non-fabric materials to create works which address political and social issues often with great humor and ingenuity. Come hear our panel of four Pacific Northwest quilters—Geoff Hamada, Scott Hansen, David Owen Hastings, and Matt Macomber—as they discuss their work, quilting backstories, and the current state of the art. Co-presented by the Pacific Northwest Quilt & Fiber Arts Museum.
