Who the heck is this idiot and what planet does he or she live on? I would really like to know who wrote this article? The ignorance of people never ceases to amaze me. Quilting is an art! Something which this writer obviously has no knowledge concept or respect for. Quilting happens to be a major part of the history of this country and the worlds for that matter. Okay go ahead cut out the funding. Lets cut out all funding for all the arts. Lets raise a nation of people from childhood like this author who was obviously raised to not appreciate art and all it encompasses. Lets raise a nation of stupid people that have no concept of what it feels like to create something from your own two hands. Lets raise a nation, keep them in the dark and hide from them all the historical pieces of art from all over the world. Why not? We have so many geniuses walking around that have no appreciation for what other people accomplish nor respect for anyone and anything! And Just to make this clear my last few statements are meant to be VERY sarcastic! And this person needs to go back and hide under their rock!
you've got to be kidding me?
