Film: Stitched with Q&A by the film’s creator Jena Moreno
Bellevue Arts Museum is please to present the first Northwest screening of Stitched, a fun-filled documentary following three quilters racing to complete their entries for the International Quilt Festival, the largest quilt show in the nation. The Houston show draws more than 50,000 quilters annually including three artists who created some controversy with their work. Quilting legend Caryl Bryer Fallert was the first to win a major prize for her quilt made with a sewing machine. She mentored Hollis Chatelain who caused a stir when she won an award for a painted quilt. And Hollis mentored Randall Cook who sparked controversy with his quilt of a male nude. In this 72-minute documentary, these quilters create their pieces to compete in the 2010 quilt show. The film tells the story about the strong bonds of friendship amongst quilters and their passion for their art. It also reveals some of the divide between traditional and art quilters.
