Re: Fabric Giveaway: Celebrating Grand Central Terminal's 100th year

NYC is truly the top of the world! Born in Brooklyn, I have loved the city forever--for its diversity, its culture and remarkable resiliency. New York keeps reinventing itself, turning different neighborhoods into the latest mecca of fabulous finds. For me, one of the Best neighborhoods is the Garment District with aisles of swoon-full cloth! As a civil engineer with a long career in transportation and city engineering, the Grand Central Fabric would be proudly and happily transformed into fashion for my family or my home. And The City Quilter is a yet undiscovered treat for me.
