  <head>Departmental History</head>
  <p>The Quilting Technologies Department was created in 1978, 3 years after the founding of <corpname><part>Piecemaking University</part></corpname> in order to <quote>study the history of technologies of quilting and promote the exploration and development of new technologies.</quote> Its two full-time faculty members were <persname identifier="http://id.loc.gov/authorities/names/no2019174587" normal="Russel, Martha A. (Martha Anita), 1941-2010"><part>Dr. Martha Russel</part></persname> and <persname identifier="http://id.loc.gov/authorities/names/no2019174587233" normal="Carter, Caroline, 1932-"><part>Dr. Caroline Carter</part></persname>. At the time of its founding, the department only offered a single degree, the Doctorate in Quilting.</p>
  <p>According to historian Amelia Robinson:</p>
      <p>...the late 1970s saw Quilt Education to shift from a discipline concerned with history to an interdisciplinary and forward-looking field. No longer confined to studying and describing the textiles themselves or the persons who created them, quilt educators began exploring the techniques and technologies of quilting and its intersection with other textile arts and crafts. Entire departments, such as the Quilting Technologies Department at Piecemaking University, began stitching together connections with women's history, the history of industrialization, the study of technology, and experimental research.<lb/>

  <p>By 1985, the department had grown to 5 faculty positions and 3 interdisciplinary positions shared with other parts. It began offering three program tracks: textile history, history of technology, and women's history. Around 1987, the department began offering 400-level classes for undergraduates majoring in general history and women's studies.</p>
  <p>In 2000, the department began including courses on digital technologies, although the department's mission continues to define Quilting Technology as "the broad set of processes, skills, tools, and techniques developed for the creation of quilts and related textiles." In 2010, the department partnered with the library in the creation of a makerspace.</p>
