What’s New About Jane Stickle?

with Pam Weeks

In 2013, the 150th anniversary year of the making of the Jane Stickle quilt, Pam Weeks came to Bennington Museum to examine and do further research on the iconic Civil War quilt. In this live, virtual presentation, Pam will reveal the results of her research and shed light on the life of the Vermont farm wife who made an incredible quilt.

About the Presenter:

Pam Weeks’ love for quilts began at the time of the United States Bicentennial in 1976. Pam made traditional and then art quilts, but in 1991 she fell in love with antique quilts and began an exploration of quilt history, women’s history, and textile history which continues. Her published work on signature quilts and potholder quilts is found in the American Quilt Study Group’s peer reviewed journal “Uncoverings” and in 2011, she published with co-author Don Beld, Civil War Quilts; and with Sandra Sider in 2019, Deeds Not Words, Celebrating 100 years of Women’s Suffrage. Her next book Portable Patchwork will be out in January of 2022. 

As the Binney Family Curator of the New England Quilt Museum she works with quilters, collectors, institutions, and co-conspirators to plan exhibits and conduct research on the quilts in the museum’s collection. Pam hikes and gardens in New Hampshire where she lives with her partner Scott, and her wee dog, Simon the Amazing Papillon.
