Curiously, the best part of the day was after the meeting. I walked from the Fashion Institute to Grand Central Station with Empire member (and Selvage Blog reader) Diane Schneck. We had such a good visit talking about our first quilts, urban myths, Sept. 11, and I forgot what else.
At Grand Central we saw this exhibit of Italian Glass and leather shoes in honor of Columbus Day. I particularly liked the glass NYC taxi (above) and the stars and stripes figure (below). They even had a wine and cheese tasting area. Delicious. What a nice surprise.
The collection of ornaments on this tree was truly amazing.
