Lucie Heins: Alberta Quiltmakers and their Quilts

October 28, 2021 12:00 pm

Event Details

Lucie Heins began researching the history of Alberta quiltmakers and their quilts in 2010. Heins engaged 38 museums, throughout the province, to host public “quilt documentation” events. The research collected through this process, informed her upcoming book, Alberta Quiltmakers and their Quilts addressing the gap in the Canadian literature on the history of Alberta quilts.

Lucie Heins is the Assistant Curator for the Daily Life & Leisure program at the Royal Alberta Museum. She has an MA in Human Ecology from the University of Alberta where she majored in the study of clothing and textiles. Lucie has worked on projects at the Textile Museum in Washington DC, and in Haifa, Israel, attending to the textile collection at the Baha’i World Centre under the care of the Department of Holy Places.

This will be a free, ONLINE event.
