"I am mostly known for comedy; it's true, I'm a funny guy. But this is not that."
This is a story told through quilts. Of how Scot's first husband's addiction took him by surprise and drove a freight train through his world. Of Scot's efforts to make sense of it and find his way back to life. The quilts, handmade by Scot, will illustrate his strange journey, and you will get a chance to check them out, up close and personal.

RE-EMERGENCE, REFLECTION, RENEWAL
David Gassner's (co-founder of 18th & Union in 2016) was our engine & driver for 5 years, offering his vision and tireless service to build something special. We welcomed Peggy Gannon as the new Executive Director in 2021, who provided clear and generous leadership through a significant transitional period; helping 18th & Union weather the pandemic shutdowns, and notably oversaw the transition from volunteer staff to paid staff in 2022.
