Default Persian Pickle Club Movie

One of my favorite books is being made into a movie. This book by Sandra Dallas tells the story of a group of women quilters in the 30's depression and their friendship.

I have not been able to locate anything about who is in it, or when it is coming out.

I love all of Sandra Dallas's books because she always has quilting mentioned in some way.

When this does hit the big screen, I am going to ask my quilting friends to attend as a group. Girls afternoon out.

PS: Persian Pickle is what they called the Paisley fabric back then.

I just Googled it and it sounds like they are still trying to fund it. You have to be on Facebook or Pinterest to get further information. I think it would make a great movie.

my newsletter from Superior Threads this morning mentioned the movie
I've haven't been to the site yet, but here is the paragraph from Bob.

Let your voice be heard. Superior Threads has partnered with the amazing production staff of the upcoming movie, The Persian Pickle Club. Together we want to better understand how quilters interact with different forms of video media. Therefore, we invite you to participate in an online survey. When you complete the survey, you’ll be entered into a drawing to win one of many fabulous prizes including sewing machines, thread, fabric, gift cards and much more. Over $4,000 in quilting prizes.

I don't know which, but either an email or a site I was on had a survey about this movie, as well as other quilting videos. Is it in process or just a thought.

well swear word. Takes a good amount of time to fill out the survey
The last page, the submit page, says you have to like on facebook a shedload of products or websites in order to be entered for any of the prizes. Except on the last popup page for facebook there isn't any place to continue on.
It wants the responder to chose whether to safe browser or not. Either choice still gives no options to go forward.

It is like the page offered is too small, but there isn't any way to enlarge the screen, either by pulling or clicking on the enlarge button in upper right. Phooey.

Whatever, it appears to be a joint project of various quilt related companies, not a mainstream movie, and hence all the questions about whether or not we buy dvds or watch stuff on youtube etc, and that if it is made it will be marketing a line of Persian Pickle fabric and pattern.

It worked going through firefox. Still took a long time. I'd love to win something. I think the last thing I ever won was a used quilt book at a show. I nearly went into cardiac arrest In a good way.

I love that book - I had to find all the other books Sandra Dallas wrote - they are all good. I could see the Persian Pickle Club as a movie - can't wait to see that one.

Thanks for the information. She also wrote The quilt that walked to Golden : women and quilts of the Mountain West : from the Overland Trail to contemporary Colorado
Dallas, Sandra.

Inspiration drawn from letters, journals, historical sources, and—essential vehicles of women's storytelling through the years—quilts fills this narrative re-creation of the history of the West from the time of the early pioneers to the present day. The purpose of quilts and the art of quilting provide a window into the lives of these women, their friendships, and their sorrows. Quilts provided warmth and occasionally served as death shrouds during the gold rush years. They were nailed to the walls and floors of rough-hewn cabins of shanty mining settlements. Quilting bees provided a rare opportunity for female fellowship at the turn of the century. The voice of a masterful storyteller brings to life the heroic and heartbreaking stories of generations of women in this sensitive and artistic portrait.
