Quilters Take Manhattan

Last week we welcomed two tour groups into our office through "Quilters Take Manhattan," an event put on by The Quilt Alliance. The groups were led by quilter and fabric designer Paula Nadelstern, a New York City native, who gave a tour of the Garment District. 

The groups started off in our showroom, where Paula spoke more about her design process accompanied by Stylist Ruth Beck and CAD Artist Kay Saniga.  The quilters also received a sneak peak at her new collection that will be debuting at Fall Market. (Don't worry...we'll be showing it to you soon as well!)

Here are a few pictures from their visit:

Paula shares the ins and outs of putting together a fabric collection with the group.

Kay talks about how fabric is designed. (Look at the fabulous quilt on the wall behind her!)

After leaving our office, the group visited both famous sights in the district, as well as those only known by insiders. They also stopped and shopped at Paula’s favorite boutiques selling fabric, trims, buttons, feathers, leathers and more--lucky them!
