This just in from Dale Riehl, of The City Quilter and Gallery:
ABC Television network’s CELEBRITY WIFE SWAP series shot a segment at our gallery and The City Quilter last March.
The program containing this premieres on ABC this Tuesday, July 1 at 10pm EST.
In this sequence, the out-of-town mother, Emily Zoltan (wife of Penn, of Penn & Teller) is trying to interest her temporarily-adopted Manhattan family’s mother, comedian Judy Gold and her sons, age 12 & 17, in the arts. The producers were looking for a small-scale arts setting that might possibly engage the sports-loving boys and mother. We showed them around our ArtQuilt Gallery·NYC and then The City Quilter, where they immediately encountered our Bernina sewing machine display. The boys loved using machines for the first time, and enjoyed sewing-out their names with the built-in alphabets. In fact, they didn’t want to stop.
This show will be available for streaming after the network premiere.
This photo was taken during production, with the two mothers to the left & Cathy in the middle as she works with one of the sons.
Exciting news. Quilt and fabric lovers, don’t miss this. Tune in or stream!
