Feedsack Secrets: Fashion from Hard Times by Gloria Nixon

I appreciate 19th century quilts, but my area of interest in quilt history has always been the 20th century. I am drawn over and over again to quilts created between the 1920s-1976 - a time span that takes in my grandmothers, my mother, and my generation of women because they touch something deep inside my soul.

I was DELIGHTED when I opened my mailbox and found Gloria Nixon's book Feedsack Secrets: Fashion from Hard Times inside. I grabbed a cup of tea, a few chocolate kisses, and settled down in my family room in my favorite rocker, near our woodburner, to read it.

Well researched and written in a voice and tone to please my Midwestern heart, there is a lot of feedsack information inside this gem. I have read it, I enjoyed it, learned a lot about feedsacks and their history that I did not know before, and I would recommend it to my fellow 20th Century quilt lovers.

This is the type of book presentation my group of quilt history friends love and hope to see more of in the future.

Well done Gloria Nixon for writing it and well done Kansas City Star Books for publishing it.
