Creator Sketch

Joyce Gross' work as a researcher, publisher, scholar, teacher, and organizer were critical in promoting the study of quilt history in the United States. Beginning with her first purchase in 1973 of a quilt top at a flea market, Gross amassed a historically important collection. As she collected quilts and became acquainted with quilters, Gross began to share her love of the art with the public by organizing quilting tours throughout the nation; hosting her celebrated annual quilting retreat in Point Bonita, California; and founding and publishing the Quilters' Journal from 1977 to 1987. Moreover, in 1980 Gross helped organize the influential American Quilt Study Group. Over the years she established herself as a leading historian of twentieth century quilts and quilters. In recognition of her many contributions to American quilting, Joyce Gross was inducted into the Quilter's Hall of Fame in 1996. She was named a "Quilt Treasure" by the Alliance for American Quilts. Joyce Gross passed away December 24, 2012.


Scope and Content

The collection contains original examples of American quilting as well as related material, including manuscripts, rare textile books, journals,catalogs, visual materials, and ephemera of twentieth-century quilting history. Includes more than 170 quilts by American quilters from the late 1930s to 2002, including Pine Hawkes Eisfeller's The Garden [detail] (1938) and Tree of Life (1939). In 1999, both of Eisfeller's works were judged to be two of the "100 Best Quilts of the Twentieth Century." Other prominent twentieth-century American quilters whose works are represented in the Gross Collection include Bertha Stenge, Emma Andres, Florence Peto, and Jeannette Throckmorton.
