Author Talk: "The Amish Quilt Craze: Art, Business, and Authenticity"

< BACK

September 18, 2014

In this Author Talk, Janneken Smucker discusses the Amish Quilt craze. Smucker seeks to understand how the term "Amish" became a style and what it means to both quiltmakers and consumers. Whether considered as art, craft, or commodity, Amish quilts reflect the intersections of consumerism and connoisseurship, religion and commerce, nostalgia and aesthetics.
