Library of Congress to feature Fly Me to the Moon book

I have exciting news! Nanette Gibbs from the Library of Congress came by the FMTTM exhibit when it was at Dulles Expo Center. She was very impressed with the quilts and is planning to do an exhibit about Fly Me to the Moon: An Art Quilt Journey at the Library of Congress. Put October 10th on your calendar. Photos of the following pieces will be displayed at the Library along with a copy of the book. All FMTTM artists are invited, and Nanette is planning to give you a tour of the LOC. Plan to meet at the Library of Congress at 10 AM on 10/10. I will have all of the featured quilts with me so that you can show and talk about them. We can go out to lunch in the cafeteria following the event if we would like to.

If you plan to go to see the exhibit on another day, with family or friends for example, you will need the following information:

The exhibit is located in the ADAMS building on the fifth (5th) floor, which is the building behind the Jefferson (the oldest building). Go to the 5th floor reading room. If you do not get a library card, you won’t be able to go in. You can complete the application process online, ( then get there cards once you arrive. OR…..they can contact Nanette Gibbs ( and tell her your approximate time of arrival and she will get you into the reading room. I encourage you to get your own card. If you need Nanette’s help, please give her a couple of days notice. It is a big facility and she is a busy lady, as I’m sure you understand.
