Textile Talks

Textile Talks features weekly presentations and panel discussions from the International Quilt Museum, the Modern Quilt Guild, Quilt Alliance, San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles, Studio Art Quilt Associates, and Surface Design Association. The programs are held online at 2 pm. Eastern (11 am Pacific) each Wednesday. Preregistration is required and recordings are available.

Founded by Sara Trail in 2017, the Social Justice Sewing Academy (SJSA) is a Bay Area-based education program that empowers young people to use sewing to express themselves and create opportunities for personal growth and social change. Through a series of hands-on workshops in schools, prisons, and community centers across the country, SJSA works with youth to use textiles as a vehicle for community engagement and social activism. Join us for an inspiring presentation by Sara Trail as she shares more about her organization’s mission and upcoming projects. This Textile Talk presented by the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles is free and open to the public.
