One week from today I will be in New York City at the Marcus Fabric headquarters in downtown Manhattan.
Mr. Joe said he would rather stay home and watch the pine trees grow, so my sister Gail and I are going to go.
In between meetings and dinners, we will be playing tourist. Gail has organized the entire trip and set up all of our tours. We are going to see the Statue of Liberty and walk across the Brooklyn Bridge.
We will have a tour of the Empire State Building at night.
During a Zoom call, the president of Marcus Fabrics said she was going to fly six of their newest designers to the city to meet the Marcus staff including the graphic designers. This will be very helpful as I'm beginning to design another fabric collection.
Keep in mind that I'm a mountain girl and will feel like a fish out of water in the Big Apple. If we have two cars go by the cabin in an hour, we consider that a traffic jam. I've always told everyone I'm a BMW (Bitchin' Mountain Woman). I understand there are a lot of BMWs, Bentleys and Porches in the city, so I should fit right in. I also understand that Buffalo Check is a very popular style right now, so I won't be making a fashion statement in my Lumberjack apparel.
We are being housed in a hotel where George Washington once stayed. The hotel doesn't have an elevator. As long as I'm not on the 25th floor and we have indoor plumbing so I can brush my wooden teeth, I'm good to go!
