Yvette - co-owner of Gotham Quilts would love people to sign up for their “Sewing in the City” which is "a 3- day quilting event. As described by Gotham Quilts - it is "a "reverse retreat" - instead of going out into the woods/country to seclude ourselves and sew, we're bringing people into the heart of the greatest city in the world to learn from the best in the industry. Surround yourself with the energy of the city while we deep dive into new sewing and quilting concepts, stitch our hearts out, and form new lifelong friendships."
Yvette announced that Gotham Quilts is have a Charity Sewing Day - making pillowcases & drawstring bags to benefit the Henry Street Settlement.  March 22nd 12-5PM
Craft in America on PBS featured a show on quilts and quilting.
