I'm Just Sayin

Off to the Big Apple - NYC!

We're heading to New York City this week for Quilter's Take Manhattan!

Quilters Take Manhattan spans three days and this year, the main event on Saturday, held at the Fashion Institute of Technology, will double in venue space.

2015 add-on events this year include:

• behind-the-scenes tours with the Met Museum and the American Folk Art Museum

• workshops,

• tours of the garment district

• and a Broadway outing.

I am headlining the 2015 main event, to be held on September 26 from 9:00 am - 5:00 pm at the Fashion Institute of Technology, presenting a lecture titled, “Let the Art Find You”.

I will be talking about my first career as a musician, and how I wound up finding fame and joy in quilting. I’ll encourage the audience to take risks with their own work, and provide advice on how to get to the next level of personal achievement, whatever your goals may be. I hope you can join me!

There are still tickets available to the main event at FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology) and to some of the workshops and tours. For more information, contact QTM here.

Come Visit La Veta this month!

Woohoo! I'm very excited to share with you some wonderful events happening in La Veta this coming June! You'll want to mark your calendars and plan a visit to our unique little mountain town to see a local production of "The Quilters" and a special exhibition of quilts made by world renown quilters such as David Taylor, Alex Anderson, Libby Lehman, myself and more! Justin Shults and myself have collected quilts over the past decade or so. The quilts on exhibit are from our private collection.

For tickets to the play, visit the website for the Francisco Center for the Performing Arts in La Veta. The play features “The Legacy Quilt” which I designed (shown below) and was made by members of the Colorado Quilting Council. The quilt will be raffled at the end of the last performance and all proceeds will go to the Francisco Center for the Performing Arts.
