Joe Cunningham has been a professional quilt artist since 1979. He has written essays on the subject for museum catalogs, books and magazines. His book, “Men and the Art of Quilt Making” was the first book on its subject. Joe travels throughout the country to give lectures and workshops on quilt making. His ten books on quilt making  include the first biography of a living quilter, the first book on men who make quilts ("Men and the Art of Quilt Making,") and a definitive book on marking quilts for quilting called “Quilting with Style,” published by AQS. He has been seen on the Peabody Award-winning PBS series Craft in America, the HGTV series “Simply Quilts with Alex Anderson,” as well as  “The Quilt Show” with Ricky Tims and Alex Anderson, and others. Cunningham has performed his musical quilt show, “Joe the Quilter,” for guilds and theaters nationwide.  His latest book is "Man Made Quilts: Civil War to the Present," a catalogue for the show of the same name at the Shelburne Museum.
