Quilt Exhibition 'Made in New York: City Quilting'

The City Quilter is organizing a quilt exhibition, "MADE IN NEW YORK: City Quilting," to be shown from September 22, 2009 through November 14, 2009 at the Williams Club, which is located at 24 East 39th Street. More than 60 quilts are expected to be hung. The quilts will be available for viewing from 8 am until 8 pm, every day.
For submission a quilt must have been made while the quilter was living or working in the New York metro area. The quilts will be juried. As part of the show, there will be a special exhibition of Dear Jane quilts.

This exhibit follows The City Quilter's successful show in Winter, 2007 that commemorated the 10th anniversary of our classroom-and our shop. At that time, 45 juried quilts were displayed for seven weeks at the Williams Club. The Club was pleased with the response, and has invited us back.

Cathy Izzo, the shop's co-owner commented: "There are so few opportunities for the public to see quilts in New York City, and the vast range of quilting styles will surprise--and please--all the visitors. We expect a big response to a show that will help advance New Yorkers' interest in quilting."

So, if you live in the area or want a weekend trip, plan for this great New York Experience! Best Blogger TipsShare/Bookmark

Wouldn't I just LOVE to go to NYC! (Oh yes, I'd like to see the quilts too.)
