Join Pam Knight Stevenson as she traces Arizona history through women who recorded pieces of their lives in their needlework. 
Beginning with 1860s Mexican women, through 1990s Hopi women, this presentation introduces women who pioneered Arizona through quilts they stitched. 
The colorful patterns of women’s quilts added a spot of brightness to their homes and their lives. They also celebrated and recorded special events with their quilts.
Pam Knight Stevenson has been involved in researching and writing about Arizona history for more than 30 years. A native of Los Angeles, she earned a history degree from UCLA and moved to Arizona in 1972. She was managing editor of the news department for the CBS TV station and as manager of production for KAET-TV, the PBS station in Phoenix. 

Join Pam Knight Stevenson as she traces Arizona history through women who recorded pieces of their lives in their needlework. 

She has conducted hundreds of oral history interviews, including Arizona Historymakers; journalists; quilters; Harvey Girls; and Navajo Code Talkers. Focusing on women’s history, Stevenson co-authored the books Grand Endeavors: Vintage Arizona Quilts and Their Makers and Skirting Traditions: Arizona Women Writers & Journalists 1912–2012.
