Open Studio & Sale 2019

Join us for Bridgeport CT's city-wide Open Studios, November 9-10, 2019!

This is the one weekend out of the year that we open the doors to the public – come and see where it all happens! I will have limited supplies of books, patterns, templates and maybe fabric bundles available for sale! I have some hand-embroidered emoji's available – these make great gifts with an inexpensive frame! I'll have a limited selection of quilts on available for sale. UPDATE! We will  have some of Peace by Piece's (see below) gorgeous quilts available for sale during Open Studios – visit our sale page to view them. I've also got a couple of like-new DS for Sarita Handa quilts which will be available on-site only – come early!

The highlight of the weekend is a visit by Peace by Piece: The Norwalk Community Quilt Guild. On Saturday November 9 from 11-2, they'll bring their quilting frame, and you're invited to drop in to stitch alongside these fabulous folks and share stories and skills. Don't know how to quilt? We'll show you how!

Be sure to get a raffle ticket while you're here, or donate online. For every $5 you donate, you'll have a chance to win the A Different Stripe quilt I made for our Art Raffle. Proceeds from the raffle go to our neighbors, the Bridgeport Rescue Mission, which provides meals, clothing, and housing for those in need. Your ticket offers multiple opportunities to win hand-made art and experiences, including an improvisational stripe quilt, with blocks donated by workshop participants over the past few years.

Plan enough time to visit all the other amazing artists in American Fabrics Building! Painters, potters, sculptors, photographers and MORE will be sharing and selling their wares and doing demonstrations.  If you have the whole weekend, be sure to get around to locations across the city for performances, music, art, and great food. There's even a Bridgeport Arts Trail bike tour!

See you in November!
