Ending 2018 with a Thank You to my customers and friends!

As we close out 2018, I thank my customers and friends for all the Threadmongers support this year!  It has been a great year for quilting and THREAD!!

It continues to be fun for me to attend the regional quilt shows and bring thousands of spools and cones of the BEST threads for your quilts and sewing projects.  You always amaze me with your brilliant designs and I am inspired every time.

And thanks for becoming my friends as well as my customers.  Meeting you is the greatest joy of my micro-business and I'll be forever grateful for your friendship and kindnesses.

My first event for 2019 will be at the Kitsap Quilters' show in February.  I'll publish my schedule for the first six months on this blog very soon. 

I hope you take some time to QUILT this season!  See you in 2019!

Block Party Quilters Nov. 9-10-11 Without Borders!!


The Block Party Quilters have the distinction of having the last guild quilt show in the region every year and they take that responsibility seriously!  They have a BLOWOUT of a FABULOUS show every time!

Located at the beautiful Issaquah Community Center, this show has a magical quality - the mid-November light coming through all the windows and the two-story atrium feel draws you in to the maze of wonderful quilts.  Come early, stay late.  Chat with the guild members and featured artist.  Relax in the tea room. And then see it all again!


Fill up your brain with inspiration for that winter sewing until mid-February until the Kitsap Quilters have the first show of the guild-quilt-show year. 

Yes, it's a long winter and you need lots of THREAD to get you through!

Have I mentioned that I have the new three-ply Aurifil cones that longarmers have been asking for?

Also the new GlaMore 12-weight metallic thread that you can use in your machine!


Using the right thread is the path to the perfect quilt.  You heard that here first!


2017

So come a few short miles on I-90 to Issaquah and enjoy a perfect quilter's day.  Or two!

Threadmongers will be there!!

Stray Threads are showing you their quilts this weekend - October 26-27!

The Stray Threads are putting the final sleeves on those beautiful quilts and will be ready to show them to you Friday and Saturday, October 26-27! 


They're in a new venue with 8000 square feet!  So there will be lots to see and do and vendors, too!

The IUIOE Union Hall at 18701 120th AVE NE in Bothell is the place to be for quilters and quilt appreciators.  Just a tick east of highway 405, you'll be inspired for your winter quilting, and maybe for those Christmas gifts you are working on right now!

Threadmongers will be there with all the quality threads you crave!  Be sure to stock up for the winter and remember that THREAD makes great holiday gifts!!

See you this weekend!  You need thread!

Quilt and Fiber Arts festival this weekend - in Everett! October 12-13-14

The quilt show season is upon us and perhaps the "crown jewel" of these shows is the one presented by the Pacific Northwest Quilt and Fiber Museum!


You're used to seeing this show in La Conner - but the show is in Everett this year to enjoy a much larger venue!

Hosted by the Edward D. Hansen Conference Center, you'll see a lovely collection of juried pieces, all for your perusal and appreciation! 

Threadmongers will be there - you will be inspired to use THREAD in your next masterpiece, and I can certainly help with that!

So come to Everett this weekend - Friday, Saturday, and Sunday - and enjoy our very own quilt museum's special presentation of fiber art!

West Sound Quilters are Coming Up Roses October 5-6!



The West Sound Quilters are a clever bunch.  They are having their fun quilt show at the Kitsap County Fairgrounds in President's Hall - right next door to the Home Show in the Kitsap Sun Pavilion!!





So when you take a trip to the beautiful Kitsap Peninsula (and you will) this weekend, you can see both the quilt show and the home show!

A great way to spend the day - visit the quilt show to get inspired and shop for THREAD (maybe some other stuff, too) and then pop over to the Home Show to plan your new quilting studio!! 

The raffle quilt for this year is a spectacular display of roses.  Get your tickets early!

And, as mentioned above, YOU NEED THREAD!!  Winter is coming.  Holiday sewing and then some more thread for YOU.  Making a jelly roll rug?  You'll need thread support!!

So direct yourself over to the Kitsap County Fairgrounds this weekend and say hello to the rosy-cheeked West Sound Quilters. Friday and Saturday. 

Threadmongers will be there!!
