Hello again everybody,

Though I have no affiliation w/ them whatsoever, since we are all Quilters, I thought I'd announce this show for those who haven't yet heard about. I read about it a few months ago & thought it sounds fabulous; have had the post card announcement posted over my desk at work since November!

Amer. Folk Art Museum presents

'Infinite Variety: 3 Centuries of Red & White Quilts'

quoting from their post card announcement:

"For six days in March, the American Folk Art Museum will dramatically transform the Park Avenue Armory's historic 55,000 sq. ft. Wade Thompson Drill Hall with the installation of more than 650 Red and White American quilts, all of which are on loan from one private New York City collection. It will be the largest exhibit of quilts ever held in the City. As an extraordinary gift to the public, entry to this unprecedented event is free. A cafe and a book and gift shop will be open during show hours."

for more information, please contact:

Thank you,

Karen Sternberg
