Quilters Take Manhattan, the once a year extravaganza hosted by the Quilt Alliance, has grown every year adding classes, tours and special contests to the delight of the quilting community. Although all of this is fun, the Alliance has a very important purpose in the preservation and education of the quilting arts.
The Quilt Alliance
Quilt Alliance is a nonprofit 501c3 organization established in 1993 whose mission is to document, preserve, and share our American quilt heritage by collecting the rich stories that historic and contemporary quilts, and their makers, tell about our nation’s diverse peoples and their communities.
In support of this mission, the Alliance brings together quilt makers and designers, the quilt industry, quilt scholars and teachers, and quilt collectors to further the following goals:
to promote the understanding of the quilt as an important American grassroots art form
to make information about quilts available to a broad public
to educate Americans about the importance of documenting quilts and quiltmakers so that their stories will not be lost.
This year’s event speakers include the very talented designer Amy Butler and the president and owner of Moda Fabrics, snazzy dresser, and Quilt Alliance board member Mark Dunn, a beautiful quilt exhibit and a goody bag that will make you drool! Everyone that attends this event is inspired to go home and create!
The Quilters Take Manhattan 2014 has completely sold out ( you can still buy tickets for the at home option) but Aurifil has a wonderful surprise! Two people will win one ticket for the SOLD OUT day event at FIT in NYC and one ticket for the After Hours party at the loft of Victoria Findlay Wolfe.

card and modem, locate the remaining covers on the back of your HP laptop.
Recycled rubber is used in many outdoor and landscaping applications.
Since there is no way I’ll be in Manhattan, I’ll stay out of the drawing. I hope the person who wins this great prize will be there to use it. If you have a giveaway for the stay-at-home option, I’m in!
I’m so excited about this chance! I can go, but the ticket sold out before I got one. I’ve gone the last 2 years, and was hoping to go this year! My friend got a ticket, but I didn’t and we’ve gone together! I hope it can happen again this year!
