2015 has been another eventful year for the Quilt Index. Do you know that we now have over 75,000 records of quilts (from public and private collections, including over 250 museums), a growing number of stories, and hundreds of pages of related photos, publications, and ephemera - not to mention lesson plans, essays, a Blog, a Facebook page, and a Wiki? And, with the addition of the panels from the NAMES Project quilt anticipated next year and records from some additional museums and documentation projects, the number will likely nearly double! As the administrative home of the Index, Michigan State University Museum continues to work hard to make this growth happen but we can’t do it without the support of grants and donations from foundations, businesses, and individuals. We hope that you, as a contributor to/and or user of the Index, or perhaps as someone who champions women artists, textile history, regional quilt documentation projects, or other facets of the Index, you will take a moment and consider how you might support the Index in your charitable giving. All you need to do is go to Donate Now to express your support through a tax-deductible eligible donation to the Index. I and the rest of the QI leadership team appreciate your support, Marsha MacDowell, Ph.D. Director, The Quilt Index (www.quiltindex.org) Curator and Professor, Michigan State University Museum
