Eastside Quilters in Bellevue! August 15th.


 
Thursday, August 15th, I'm giving a program for the Eastside Quilters that is an overview of Thread by Weight and Fiber Content.  It's my most-requested program! 


So I'm looking forward to seeing all those Eastside folks and maybe a few visitors.

Yes, I'm bringing THREAD for sale.  Not everything that I take to quilt shows because that involves about a three-hour setup and a two-hour breakdown.  But I'm bringing a LOT and we will discuss the various uses for the various weights and fibers.

My next quilt show after this will be the Sea Pals of Ocean Shores, September 20-22.  With more to come!  Check back on this blog for my fall schedule.

You need to stock up on thread!

Quilts by me!

People ask me all the time if I make quilts. When I'm standing in the booth, surrounded by thread and quilts.  Yes, I do!  I make LOTS of them.

Here are five quilts that I exhibited at the Woolley Fiber Quilters quilt and fiber show, July 12-14, 2019.  This is one of the quilting groups I belong to and we work really hard to put on a great show every year!





 
And here is a photo of my booth at the show, with a collection of quilts and table runners that I have made to show off the beautiful threads!


Time for a little time off!

THANKS! to all the customers who stocked up on thread this weekend at the Woolley Fiber Quilters quilt and fiber show!  It was well-attended and so fun to see people who are SO interested in quilting!

This month is my 14th anniversary as the Threadmonger!  Thanks to everyone who loves quilting thread and comes to me for the best!  And here is my annual reminder that Alene Kempton Gragg was my very first customer, 14 years ago.

Here is a photo of my friend, Jaretta, as she booth-sat for me for a few minutes this weekend:  NEVER leave your camera within her reach when you are gone or you will come back to a dozen of her selfies!

I am going to have a little hiatus now, but I'll see you at the Eastside Quilters' meeting on August 15th and at the Sea Pals show in Ocean Shores September 20-22.

Keep quilting and use up that thread!  So you'll need more!!

Woolley Fiber Quilters present "United We Stand" July 12-13-14!

The Woolley Fiber Quilters are having their 10th annual quilt and fiber show!

I could say "we" are having because this is my local group.  We are not a guild, per se, but we are the administrative group that puts on the show in Sedro-Woolley so that all the local fiber artists can show their work. 



There is no doubt that Sedro-Woolley is a quilting town!  We have several active quilting groups and TWO quilt shops!  Plus Threadmongers!

So make that beautiful drive to Sedro-Woolley on July 12-13-14 and come on out to see us at Cascade Middle School (905 McGarigle Road) just off Highway 9.  We'll show you 250+ quilts, demonstrations, vendors, a member boutique, and our popular bed turning! 

Food will be available for purchase on site and we have GREAT parking!

One of our vendors will be a scissors sharpening booth and you SHOULD bring your scissors and let Butch tune them up while you enjoy the show.

Threadmongers will be there with a fresh collection of #12 pearl cotton from Valdani as well as all your favorites.  Yes, I still have the lowest price on Aurifil that you will find anywhere.  And lots of metallic threads for your sparkly moods!

Come see the Woolley Fiber Quilters show and help us celebrate 10 years - we can hardly believe it.   There is so much inspiration for you here in Sedro-Woolley. 

And you need thread!
