I saw the Gee's Bend Quilt exhibit at our city's art museum and it was a memorable one. I am a quilter but I truly don't believe you have to be a quilter to appreciate the beauty of these quilts as well as the women who lovingly stitched each one. During the exhibit this DVD ran on a monitor and I was captivated by it so I purchased it. Periodically I view it because each time it stirs a lot of emotion within me. I laugh with these women and I marvel at their strength as well as their spirit. This is a lovely, lovely, very well produced account of the women of Gee's Bend, their friendships and their relationship with quilting.

I am so glad that I ordered the Quilts of Gee's Bend DVD. It exceeded my expectations, and as a teacher, I was able to incorporate the DVD in African American Literature class. Also, the company offered upgraded shipping free of charge.

This is really a great historical dvd. It is filled with much inspiration of how quilts from a time were so important and still play a important roll in our homes today. Anyone who ever had a grandmother or, a favorite family member to share the art of how to make a quilt, or to receive one will have a great appreciation for this dvd.

Lovely documentary. You can buy a new copy at a reasonable cost directly from Alabama Public Television (aptv.org). Also look for the wonderful movie about artist Thornton Dial, who's become a friend to the ladies of Gee's Bend. He references their work in his work, and they do the same back for him. That movie is called "Mr. Dial Has Something to Say."

The video has been looked at many times. also, shared woth family and friends. Never heard of Gee's Bend before, so, seeing the sites shown on the video was helpful. The singing was great!
