I’d like you to read this thoughtful, pointed post by Sam Hunter. She covers some of the recent discussion about men in quilting, and in particular about a current quilt show that includes only men’s work. The title of the show is “No Girls Allowed.” There have been a handful of posts on this issue and related topics, and she links to some of them.
In the last couple months, we’ve seen gender in quilting discussed in several places, and after following the conversations I feel a need to add my voice.
I’ll attempt to pull some threads together for you here (and these are just the ones I know of – please send me others you might think are important to this conversation and I’ll add them):
