SAN ANTONIO -- A San Antonio craft shop is sewing together 300 years of history as a gift to the city.
Abby's Attic Sewing and Craft Studio is making a quilt resembling the city's skyline and several landmarks.
It includes the Tower of Americas, Alamo and Spurs arenas. The quilt is expected to be 6 feet high and 10 feet wide when presented to the city in May.
Five and a half inch fabric squares are being used to piece the quilt together. The shop owner is recruiting the help of the community to bring the Tricentennial-inspired gift together.
"We really wanted to bring something to the studio where people could come in from the community learn a skill, sit down, enjoy the others that they meet and put their mark on something we are giving to the city," said Jennifer Nicolella of Abby's Attic.
The craft shop, located at 9815 Culebra Road, is hosting a workshop on February 23. People can come and make their own fabric square for free and contribute it to the project. Abby's Attic will also sign off on community hours for students.
