Don't Forget: Quilt Shows this Weekend!

Hi all,

Just a reminder that this weekend is a quilt-show extravaganza in New York City! 

1.  The Empire Quilt Guild is having their biennial show on Saturday and Sunday (March 26th and 27th) at FIT, located at 28th Street and Seventh Avenue.  Come check out over 200 quilts made by local guild members!  They are also having lots of vendors, a boutique, a raffle for an incredible quilt and great speakers.  It is a lot of fun and features an amazing array of styles and talent.
2.  The Folk Art Museum is offering free admission to its two locations in Midtown this weekend.  Each location has an amazing display of antique quilts!
3.  The Park Avenue Armory (66th and Park) is holding a giant exhibition of 650 antique red and white quilts!  The quilts all come from a woman's private collection, and a write-up about it was just featured in the Wall Street Journal this weekend.  The exhibit is free and runs from March 25th through 30th. 

Please let me know if anyone is going to be at the Empire Quilt Show on Saturday.  I will be there both days (going with family on Sunday), and I would love to meet up on mid-day Saturday with some fellow Metro Mod members!  Talk to you soon.  :)
