Will you be in NYC anytime between now and the new year?
There are so many great QUILT things happening right now! 
Plan ahead, as many events will sell out quickly!

October 15th, I am part of a round table discussion with Mark Lipinski, 
Luke Haynes, and Meg Cox,
It should be a fun event, 
come check it out and say hi!

October 15
Topic: Patchwork Folk Art or Fine Art?
Film Screening: Stitched,
a documentary film by Jena Moreno...A round table discussion will follow the film 
screening with the filmmaker and guest speakers:  
Victoria Findlay Wolfe, artist, President of Bumble Beans Inc., 
custom quilt maker and co-founder of the 
New York Metro Area Modern Quilt Guild; 
Luke Haynes, artist and  
Mark Lipinski, internationally recognized quilt teacher, quilt fabric
designer, former Executive editor of Quilter’s Home Magazine and
Emmy nominated talk show pioneer.

The documentary Stitched follows three quilters racing to complete their 
entries for the International Quilt Festival, the largest quilt show in the nation. 
The Houston show draws more than 50,000 quilters including three artists: 
Caryl Bryer Fallert, Hollis Chatelain and Randall Cook who spark hot 
debates with their groundbreaking work.
Co-presented by the New Jersey State Quilting Guild and the Textile Study Group.


The METROPOLITAN  MUSEUM  OF ART has a quilt program coming



I am happy to say that the FOLK Art museum is finding support 
from other NYC ART institutions.
The Brooklyn Museum, the New-York Historical Society, and the Museum of Arts 
and Design have expressed interest in working with the American Folk Art Museum to 
identify potential exhibitions where the museums respective collections inform and 
excite one another.

So there is HOPE for the FOLK ART MUSEUM, and we need to
support them as much as possible...

please go visit
2 Lincoln Square, Columbus Avenue at 66th Street

It's so worth it to see these SUPER STAR quilts! 


Let me know if you come to NYC to visit!


  1. How wonderful that so many places are putting the focus on fiber arts, looks like there are a lot of things to see and do this fall/winter in your area. Wish I could make it back this year :-(

  2. my heart is racing. really it is. so much quilt love and you know i love NYC. wheww. :>)

  3. I'll be in New York the beginning of January. Sure hope there will be something going on then. Last year we were able to visit an exhibit at (I think) MOMA.
