    I attended the Alliance For American Quilts...Quilter's Take Manhattan at FIT. It was a nice lecture by Marianne Fons and her daughter Mary, from the internet show Quilty. She is a lot of fun. After that Mark Lipinski interviewed Jay McCarroll, the first winner of Project Runway. It was in interesting afternoon. I got there early and had a long chat with Mark Lipinski. What a fun guy he is. Is amazing how someone as sick as he is can find the energy to enjoy what he does so much. My husband and I have a wonderful kidney transplant success story and he was eager to hear it. After that I went to The City Quilter to see the latest exhibit at the Quilt Art Gallery. I didn't like their first exhibition, but this one made up for that. It was just incredible! My goody bag had Aurifill thread, fabrics, a thimble a and a CD with samples of full QNN TV shows. The ladies next to me gave me their fabrics and threads. I came home with quite a heavy goody bag. Great way to start a vacation! I am now inspired to start sewing again.

    After living upstate for 10 years I got used to quilt shops being cute with many quilts hanging from the walls. The City Quilter has still some quilts on the walls, but nothing cute. A lot of quilts made from their exclusive lines like the NYC lines and the rest of the shop is set up very practical to find what you are looking for quick. I never have to ask for help. Everything is on display very visible. Love it!

    Well, I have been out of touch. Mark has kidney problems? When did this happen? I don't even buy Quilter's Home anymore since he is gone.

    Mark has been going through tough times right now. Waiting for the transplant. His mom died last week and his dad died just a short time ago.

    Good news is his son graduated from high school this year.

    Keep him in your prayers that all will work out.

    So sorry to hear about Mark's mom. Thank you for updating us on his status. I love reading his blog. He's got a great attitude and sense of humor.

    I have proof now! Mark sent me the picture of Facebook. Not the best picture in the world, but who looks good in a cell phone pic? The background has tons of door prices and silent auction items.
