A Whale of a Quilt Show in Ocean Shores, September 21-22-23!



The Sea Pals take a notion by the ocean - to quilt!

This weekend they will show you how busy they have been at the Ocean Shores Convention Center!



It is a great venue for a show - lots of light and lots of great parking.  Some quilters come to Ocean Shores for a retreat weekend and visit the show every day!  Are you one of them?

So visit our beautiful Washington coastline and give the Sea Pals some love this weekend.

Threadmongers will be there!  Winter is coming!

You need thread!!

Cabin Fever Quilt Club is out of the cabin and putting up a great show for you!

Always fun and interesting, this group shows every other year, so it's time for you to visit beautiful Port Townsend and see what kind of quilting is going on!

At the Jefferson County Fairgrounds, just north of the city, there is ample, flat parking and easy access. 

Their spectacular raffle quilt is worth the visit, too!

Sunbonnet Sue Quilt Club has the lavender in Sequim!

Sunbonnet Sues are ready for you!  They love to hold their annual show during the famous Sequim Lavender Festival, which makes it easy for you to see GREAT quilts!

They also have one of the best member boutiques in the region.  So if you are looking for quilts and quilted items to own or give, this is the place!

Scoot on over to Sequim this weekend, Friday-Saturday-Sunday, and enjoy the quilt show at Sequim Middle School.

Shades of the Northwest in Sedro-Woolley July 13-14-15!

It's almost here!  The Woolley Fiber Quilters' ninth annual quilt show in Sedro-Woolley!
 
Again this year at Cascade Middle School (905 McGarigle Road) which is just north of Highway 20 (turn north at Rite Aid/Hwy 9), you'll find 250+ quilts, bed turning (11 and 2 daily), demonstrations, vendors, people's choice awards, featured quilter, raffle quilt, and so much fun!

I think you all know that this is my group and my home turf!  So I'll have quilts in the show and I'm a vendor, too!  We always position the vendors in front of the paypoint for the show, so you can come in and shop at any time. 

Hint:  Butch Stearns will be there sharpening knives, etc.  So bring your tools that need sharpening and drop them off with Butch early in the day; pick them up on your way out.

Sedro-Woolley is a quilting town.  It's that simple.  We have quilters on every corner and our own little treasure of a fabric shop:  Cascade Fabrics downtown on Metcalf Street (where it has been for 40 years). 

So come on over to Sedro-Woolley and see quilts, have lunch, and take a look around.

Threadmongers' 13th anniversary!

Yes, I have been the Threadmonger for 13 years!  My humble beginning was in July 2005 and every year I remind Alene that she was my very first customer!!


THANK YOU to all the customers who have decided to use great threads in their quilts and other projects, and to get those threads from me!  My typical inventory has grown so big that I can't get it all in the car any more; and I even bought a bigger car!



This has been such a great adventure - I get to go to the quilt shows and see all the pretty things. I have made so many friends and seen some amazing quilts.  It's a privilege not extended to everyone and I take it very seriously. 

So thanks again for being my customers and my friends.  You are all delightful in so many ways.  We will quilt on into the future and always use quality threads!
