This past weekend I went to the Folk Art Museum. There I found a most interesting show called “When the Curtain Never Comes Down”. On display were knitted costumes, masks, jackets made from found objects and various other items made with beads, buttons and many other related & unrelated things. I urge you to see this show and believe you will find it very amusing.
Many of the items were made by people with various mental disorders like autism and schizophrenia. There are wonderful examples of “What to do with your stuff ”. This show continues until July 5th.
The Folk Art Museum is at Columbus Ave bet. 65th an 66th St. and admission is FREE.
Closed Mondays & Open Tues.--Thurs.11:30 – 7PM & Fri. 12:00 to 7:30.
It can be reached via the # 1 subway.
I believe our Spring is finally here and we can finally enjoy the many flowers that are in bloom. It's a perfect time to sit in the park and hand sew or embroider your next project.
The Empire guild only has May and June left before our summer vacation. We are looking to spread the news about our guild. If you have friends or neighbors who are looking for a creative outlet tell them about our talented speakers and workshops,or that they can learn to quilt with our coach and chat. Empire has something for everyone.
I would like to thank all the members who submitted quilts for the show. I am aware of the commitment it takes to make a quilt that you are so proud of that you are willing to show it to the world.
