Open Studio & Sale 2018

Our annual Sample Sale, part of Bridgeport CT's city-wide Open Studios, is scheduled for November 10-11, 2018. This is the one weekend out of the year that we open the doors to the public – come and see the studio where it all happens! We'll have fabric and books available for sale, along with a just a couple of quilt samples.

The highlight of the weekend is a visit by Peace by Piece: The Norwalk Community Quilt Guild. On Saturday November 10 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! All 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 a quilt by yours truly.

Make sure you 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!
