Behind the Scenes: Heritage Quilters To Be Featured in Upcoming PBS Series, ‘Family Pictures USA’

Building on the momentum of the arts and culture resurgence in Warren County, the Heritage Quilters Giving Circle, Inc. will be featured on an upcoming PBS series, Family Pictures USA.

Family Pictures USA is a documentary-style television show focusing on bringing people together to share family photos and stories through “Community Photo Sharing.” A production crew visited the Historic Aaron Hendrick House Tuesday, November 6 to document the Heritage Quilters in action as well as include a special appearance by NC Poet Laureate Jaki Shelton Green, who read one of her poems.

The shoot lasted for about five hours and featured the Heritage Quilters discussing their Stitching Life Stories art quilts and several brought photographs that inspired their works.

The Heritage Quilters will be featured in the Family Pictures USA’s third episode and will air in 2019.

More details will be available closer to the air date and will be posted on HeritageQuilters.net.
