"Behind the Scenes at the Greatest Quilt Museum in the World"
Let Meg Cox, who serves on the board of advisors for the International Quilt Museum in Lincoln, Nebraska, open the vaults and reveal the treasures of this astounding place. Her PowerPoint lecture will show you masterpiece quilts, introduce you to curators and break down the steps in mounting an exhibition. IQM boasts a broad and unique collection of American quilts, including the red and white quilts that dazzled the quilt world when hung in Manhattan’s Park Avenue Armory in 2011. But it has also collected quilts from more than 55 countries. Meg created this presentation to benefit the museum she loves so shedonates every penny to the IQM.

To make it even more fun, the museum will donate a fun door prize from its museum store
to Westside Quilters

Ohio native Meg Cox has been earning her living as a writer since graduating from Northwestern University in 1975. She was hired as a staff writer by the Wall Street Journal in 1977, at age 24, and worked at the WSJ in Chicago and New York for 17 years.

While at the Journal, Meg contributed hundreds of front-page stories and was lauded for her feature writing. Her beats included financial futures, agriculture, the business of the arts, and publishing. Since the birth of her son, Max, in 1994, Meg has written for many national magazines, lectured and taught all over the country and authored five books.  She continues to contribute weekend arts features to the Wall Street Journal.

Her two main specialties are FAMILY TRADITIONS and QUILTING, two wildly misunderstood topics. Both are thought to be old-fashioned and un-hip which could not be farther from the truth. 

Her expertise on QUILTING stems partly from the 25 years that she has been a passionate quilter.  Additionally, Meg served on the board of the national nonprofit Quilt Alliance for 10 years and was president for 6 years.  She writes a popular free monthly e-newsletter called Quilt Journalist Tells All. See her commentary on modern quilting in the hit 2011 documentary, Stitched.
