Knot Sew Fast pulls from the extensive textile and fabric arts collections held by The History Center and exhibit collaborators to lay out the stories these functional artworks tell about Tompkins County history. Piecing together the story of quilts encourages us to consider shifts in technology, industry, transportation, and materials over generations of local life. Knot Sew fast will encourage a slower recognition of the diversity of textiles and patterns, as well as the hands and minds that created them.
