MADE IN NEW YORK: City Quilting

In the Winter of 2007, The City Quilter organized an exhibition of quilts to commemorate the 10th anniversary of our classroom–and our shop. More than 90 quilts were submitted that were at least begun in our classroom, and 45 were selected for a public show at the Williams Club on East 39th Street.  It was a success, with more than 1,000 people visiting over those 7 weeks. The Club was pleased with the response, and has invited us back for another exhibition.

This year the show has a new name and a different theme: “MADE IN NEW YORK: City Quilting” celebrates the best in New York metropolitan area quilting. For submission, a quilt must have been made while the quilter was living or working in the New York metro area. As part of the show, there will be a special exhibition of Dear Jane quilts, commemorating the 10 years of Dear Jane classes at The City Quilter, and the considerable community of "Janiacs" that have developed as a result of our teachers, Judy Doenis and Diane Rode Schneck.

The exhibition runs from Tuesday, September 22 through Saturday, November 14. The 63 quilts are viewable from 8 am to 8 pm, seven days a week, and take up the public space on three floors of the Club. The Williams Club's address is 24 East 39th Street, which is between Madison & Park Avenues. There is no admission charge. The Club is wheel-chair accessible, but you ought to call ahead so that a locked door can be opened. Due to use of a meeting room, a few quilts might from time-to-time be inaccessible, so best to call in advance to confirm (212-697-5300).

If you would like to help us promote the exhibit and know of one or more places to put up a poster, please be encouraged click here to print out a 8 1/2 X 11" pdf color poster, or here for a 13 X 19" version. Thanks in advance for your support in bringing this quilt show to as many in the New York metro area as possible.
