Textiles and the Triplett Sisters
Although most of the time we keep the focus of the blog on actual textiles, a couple of times a year, we try to update you on what is coming up in the Triplett Sisters world. You should always feel free to check “Upcoming Events” on the bottom of our website home page. We try to keep events listed for several months ahead there. So, be sure to check the listing out and meet up with us at one of those events.
The first event listed is the Pioneer Quilts Exhibition starting this month June 26 at the Lutheran Heritage Center & Museum at 75 Church St, Altenburg, MO. (Anyone feel like a road trip?) This exhibit features the Poos Collection quilts from the book Pioneer Quilts: Prairie Settlers Life in Fabric. Esther Heinzman will be making a special appearance on opening day at 2pm, to talk about Pieces of the Prairie.
We are also excited to announce that we are partnering with the Mingei International Museum on some new indigo research. We have already taken a deep dive back into the 1600s and will be traveling to Bermuda and New York to research more. (It’s a tough job, but somebody needs to do it.) The results of our research and part of the Poos Collection will be an Indigo Exhibition at the Mingei in 2024. Plans include publishing our research in a collaborative catalog for the exhibition as well. See you around the quilting world!
