      Sponsored by
      H-Net, Humanities & Social Sciences On-line, Michigan State University;
      The Alliance for American Quilts, and the American Quilt Study Group


      H-Quilts is a moderated internet discussion forum whose purpose is to
      provide an exchange of information for individuals around the world
      engaged in quilting research and documentation. The list provides a forum
      for raising issues, reporting findings, reviewing books and articles, and
      sharing information about exhibitions, collections, publications, grant
      opportunities, calls for papers, and conferences. General as well as such
      specific topics as quilt documentation projects, contemporary quilting,
      art quilts, pattern history, textile history, oral history projects, and
      quilter biographies will be welcomed. H-Quilts is free and open to
      everyone with an interest in the documentation and study of quilts,
      quilters, and quilting history. Scholars, writers, teachers, collectors,
      quilt appraisers, restorers, librarians, museum curators, archivists,
      quilters, and participants in local, state, provincial, regional, and
      national quilt documentation projects are invited to join.

      The editorial style will be similar to one appropriate for a journal
      (written text) and a round table discussion at a professional meeting
      (short exchanges between colleagues). The main issue is to maintain a high
      level of professionalism, in content and form, so that everyone has access
      and can benefit. Like all H-Net lists, it is strictly moderated to filter
      out flames or irrelevant postings; inappropriate and informal postings
      will be bounced back to sender or referred to other lists.

      H-Quilts is affiliated with The Alliance for American Quilts and the
      American Quilt Study Group. The mission of The Alliance for American
      Quilts (AQSG) is "to further the recognition of quilts; to preserve the
      history of quilts and quiltmakers; and to establish The Center for The
      Quilt, a place that actively communicates with people about quilts and
      quilting. The American Quilt Study Group is "devoted to uncovering the
      accurate history of quilts, textiles, and the people who made them." AQSG
      holds an annual conference, issues the Blanket Statement newsletter, and
      publishes Uncoverings, an annual collection of papers presented at the
      conference. For more information on AQSG, point your browser to:

      material that, the editors' opinion, is not germane to the list, involves
      technical matters (such as subscription management requests), is
      inflammatory, or violates evolving, yet common, standards of Internet
