As you know, I spent the weekend in NYC at the Quilters Take Manhattan
event. All I can say is that I had a blast. I also promised to share this with you.
So let's get to it...
She had to pick a quilt, called her touchstone quilt, a quilt of significance. It was her Kitchen Sink Quilt. Then they did her "mug shot" in front of it as her interview will be entered into the Library of Congress.
You will be able to find the transcript of her interview by clicking here
. Let me tell you that the interview was nothing less than fantastic!
and Jay McCarroll
! For those of you who aren't familiar with him, he is the first winner of Project Runway and is a designer of clothing and quilting fabric with Free Spirit
. You can find some of his fabric in my shop by clicking here.
And guess who else was there the entire weekend.... Yes, Mark Lipinski
! He can make any event just way too fun. Thanks Mark
for brightening my weekend.
And how about this... Amy Milne, Executive Director of the Alliance
and Mark Dunn, Owner of Moda Fabrics
handing out door prizes! Just fabulous people and I was so happy to have met them!
More to come next post, so stayed tuned for some fun!
