The official website of the Village of Hoosick Falls, NY—the Grandma Moses Discovery Village. Located on the Hoosic River, among the bucolic foothills of the Green Mountains in the town of Hoosick, in northeast corner of New York's Rensselaer County. Home of the historic Walter A. Wood Mowing and Reaping Machinery Company—once the largest company of its kind in the world. The former factory town is now a picturesque quaint village with scenery that still inspires artists like it did with Grandma Moses in years past.

Sponsored and coordinated by Hoosick’s HAYC3, and more than a year in the planning, the All-Hoosick Community Barn & Building Quilt Project is now underway and moving full-steam ahead. The Barn and Building Quilt Project (which will be the “Hoosick Barn & Building Quilt Trail” when it’s done) is one that strives to unite community through the communal designing, construction, painting of quilt patterns on 8’ x 8’ and 4’ x4’ wooden panels.
Everyone’s all abuzz about this project, which is probably more “Hoosickian” than any in recent memory. There isn’t anyone who hasn’t had a friend or family member who quilts, has wanted to learn to quilt, slept under a quilt, or oohed and aahed over their beauty and craftsmanship at a museum, house, antique shop, a craft fair, or an estate sale. Everyone’s getting involved; Hoosick Falls Mayor is on board, the new Hoosick Town Supervisor is excited, and everyone who has heard about it is ready to go. "The Barn Quilts are coming and our community is ready to welcome them with open arms," says Mayor David Borge, "The Hoosick Community is rich in history and tradition. Our citizens appreciate craftsmanship and take pride in our heritage. The Barn Quilts and the trail combine both and I am excited and pleased to support yet another example of the best of our community."read the full story
