Stitched, is a documentary that gives viewers a glimpse of competitive quilters.

Check it out at www.stitchedfilm.com and www.facebook.com/stitchedfilm

It begins and ends with the Houston quilt show, the largest event in the nation with more than 50,000 quilters in attendance. Hundreds compete to win the quilting competition held during the annual show. Who will win Best of Show in 2010?

Each of the three quilters featured in this film has left a mark in the quilting world.

Caryl Bryer Fallert was the first to win a big prize with a quilt she made with a sewing machine at a time when hand made quilts were valued.

Hollis Chatelain won the coveted Best of Show award at the Houston quilt festival, the nation's largest quilt show with a quilt she painted. She is now using her quilts to highlight some of the world's social and environmental ills.

Randall Cook's quilt displaying male nudes was featured in an article about shocking quilts. A 3-minute version of the documentary featuring Randy won second place at the Aurora Picture Show's Extremely Shorts Festival in June.

All three race to compete their quilts, sometimes juggling busy careers.

Stitched has already won a grant from the Austin Film Society. It is scheduled to premiere in Cincinnati in April at a quilt show and it will screen a dozen times in Paducah, Kentucky, where one of the largest quit show's in the country is held.

The Stitched team needs cash to pay for the duplication of the more than 5,000 DVDs made for the first release in April. It will cost a little more than $1 for production of each DVD.
We want to sell the film to quilters, art lovers and documentary buffs.
