What an uneducated editorial. In 2010, Quilter's Newsletter published a study showing that 14% of American homes had one active quilter living in them and that quilting was a $3.58B/yr industry. The average quilter spent about $2500/yr on quilting and the "avid quilter" spent more than $6400/yr. I hardly see this as an "irrelevant" industry. Further, if one holds the belief that museums holding old stuff are irrelevant, I can't wait to crush up the Roman Marbles for road fill, and lets just get rid of the dinosaur bones since there aren't anymore dinosaurs anyway, and who wants to pay for a museum to house the dusty things! Hello? Can we sent this editor back to boot camp for a little re-education?
