Suggestions for Using this Wiki

Clicking on the name of a museum takes you to the page about that museum's quilt collections.

If the name of the museum appears in purple, this means that someone has created a page for that institution. Follow the link, and feel free to edit and add to the page. If the name of the museum appears in red, a page for the museum has not yet been created. Please help the Quilt Index by clicking the red link and adding information (the new page will be created automatically when you click the 'save' button.)

To add information about a collection, please click on the NAME of the museum/archive/library you wish to edit, NOT the edit link on the righthand side of the page. The following kinds of information are especially useful for the Wiki's museum quilt collections pages:

  • Information about named quilt and textile collections owned by an institution
  • Highlights from an institution's quilt collection
  • The particular stregnths of an institution's quilt collection (geographic, stylistic, etc)
  • Areas in which the institution is actively seeking to expand its quilt collection (specific artists, traditions, regions)
  • Names, dates, and short descriptions of quilt exhibitions and symposia hosted by an institution
  • Descriptions of papers and/or ephemera relating to quilts owned by an institution
  • Information about quilt guilds, clubs or groups sponsored by an institution
  • Related publications
  • Links to any quilt-related projects the institution has done online
  • Information about uses of the quilt collection for educational outreach

ONLY click the edit link on the righthand side of the page if you adding a website url or a location for your institution. Please remember to type an asterisk before the url/location.
