flickr and social networking among modern quilters
As some of you know, when I'm not sewing I'm an English professor (actually a folklorist working in an English department). In my home discipline of Folklore there is a long tradition of research on quilting and quilters, but modern quilting and the role of sites like flickr have not yet garnered any attention.
With your input, I would very much like to remedy that -- and draw attention to the stunning creativity and sense of community that modern quilters demonstrate. A project description/consent form can be found here: www.dropbox.com/s/trq0i2vrp50j1f6/SCHACKER%20consent%20fo...
I am starting with a very open-ended question below, and hope you'll feel inspired to contribute your two cents. Any and all contributions are welcome -- they can be very casual comments, reflections on specific experiences, whatever feels natural to you.
My contact info is on the document linked above, but please feel free to send flickr mail to me directly if you wish! Thanks so much.
