Our biggest event in the series was held at F.I.T., the Fashion Institute of Technology and featured beloved quilt TV hostMarianne Fons. Marianne lectured on “Why We Quilt,” and her daughter Mary Fons, a slam poet from Chicago who recently launched her own quilt TV show, “Quilty,” on the Internet followed in the program. Then, we met Jay McCarroll, first season Project Runway winner, who is now designing quilt fabric for FreeSpirit.

The afternoon had it all: door prizes, refreshments, goody bags, and an amazing silent auction.

NY’s Ultimate Block Party: Cocktails at The City Quilter

After our F.I.T. event we took a short walkto a unique cocktail party in the best and biggest quilt shop in Manhattan–The City Quilter. This just-expanded, eye-popping shop includes a new art gallery for quilts, where we viewed an exhibit by Japanese quilter Noriko Endo (work pictured at left). We nibbled on appetizers and drank wine, while rubbing elbows with Marianne and Mary Fons, Jay McCarroll and lots of surprise quilt celebs. Activities included live bidding in the first-ever show and auction of quilts made by board members of the Alliance for American Quilts.
