In support of The Alliance for American Quilts, we’re thrilled to announce that we have 2 pairs of tickets (each pair is a $90 value) to giveaway as part of the AAQ’s fundraiser in the Big Apple, Saturday, August 6th.

The non-profit AAQ has put together a fabulous weekend of quilts, fabric, fashion and fun in this weekend quilt extravaganza in New York City, August 5-6th. There are 3 related, but separate events throughout the weekend, with “Marianne & Jay on the Runway” on Saturday set to be a blast with door prizes, refreshments, goody bags and a silent auction to boot!

Mary Fons, daughter of quilt magazine and TV celeb Marianne Fons, will appear along with her wonderfully talented mother. Tickets for the event which also includes Project Runway winner Jay McCarroll and lots of cool freebies are only $45.

Go to www.AllianceForAmericanQuilts.org for more info on the event and tickets.

I’m hoping to win the tickets and make this a much needed vacation with my husband of 32 years. Thanks for the opportunity.

I live just 90 miles from NYC! I could take the Train! I moved from Michigan to Connecticut four years ago for my husband’s job. He since has been laid off twice and I still haven’t been to NYC. He is interviewing this week and hopefully will be re-employed next month.

I have been sewing since the FIRST Mattel Barbie Doll came out…a long time. I quilted with my Grandmother….

If I could go to NYC, I would be in HEAVEN!

I see that my comment is awaiting moderation. I’m really glad ’cause I believe in moderation in all things except crafting, of course.

Oh yes, BTW, I’d love to win the tickets so that I can be part of the madly, excitingly, fabricky, fashiony, AAQ fundraising weekend with Marianne & Jay on the Runway! I do not know them at all, but they are clearly *big stuff* so that immediately after finishing my comment, I will click all links to find out what I should already know…Thanks for the offer to award the tickets to a lucky winner.

My Mother, my sewing mentor, my friend will turn 91 on July 29th. She has sewn all of her life (and still does), as have I. We would absolutely love to win these tickets so that we can see Marianne and Mary Fons. We love their show on TV and would love to see them in person, and the quilts, not to mention seeing the sights of NEW YORK! And what a birthday trip that would be!!!
