Lincoln Quilters Guild is pleased to announce that PhD student Younhee Kang is the recipient of our $1000 scholarship. Younhee is a University of Nebraska, College of Education and Human Sciences student in the Department of Textiles, Merchandising & Fashion Design. She is pursuing a doctoral degree in the areas of Material Culture and Quilt Studies, programs that use the resources of the International Quilt Study Center & Museum. Younhee’s proposed doctoral research project is “Quilted Clothes and Armor in East Asia.” She will research the cotton armor, dating from the 4th-5thcentury paintings and military uniforms from the 17th-18thcentury that display the technique. She plans to learn and reproduce the traditional quilting technique, Noo-bi. Younhee received her B.F.A. from Duksung Women’s University and M.S. from Seoul National University in South Korea.
