Grants for Quilting?

I know that there are still quilting clubs around.
And I'm not surprised that even men quilt too.

So I'm not surprised to find out that there are actually grants for quilting.  (Actually after finding out about the witch that received a grant to start her business nothing should really surprise me as far as grants go!).

If you have a love of quilting and wanted to start a business that incorporated your quilting you'd have a lot of different routes that you could take.  Some Native American women have made quilts which have been bought and sold.  There are some smaller grants to help women start their own businesses and I have seen at least one example where one of the businesses that was started was a woman starting her own quilting business.  There is even a National Quilting Day!
