Younhee Kang, a doctoral student in Textiles, Merchandising & Fashion Design, is the recipient of a $1,000 scholarship from the Lincoln Quilters Guild. Kang’s proposed doctoral research project will focus on quilted armor of East Asia, especially South Korea. She will research cotton armor dating from 4th and 5th century paintings and military uniforms from the 17th and 18th century that display the technique. Kang plans to learn and reproduce the traditional quilting technique, Noo-bi. Kang received her bachelor’s degree from Duksung Women’s University and her master’s degree from Seoul National University, both in South Korea.
