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!

Blue Moon shines on Clark County Quilters! April 5-6-7, 2018

This BIG guild is having a BIG quilt show this week! 
And easy to find at the Clark County Events Center right on I-5!

The wet spring weather makes us want to stay inside and quilt!  Where will your inspiration come from?  Clark County Quilters!!

Full disclosure: I lived in Vancouver WA for a time and I'm still a member of this guild.  I know these people - they have so much talent and they want to share it with you!  I heard there will be 500 quilts on display!

And Threadmongers will be there!


So travel a little this weekend - up or down I-5 - and scoot on in at Exit 9.  Just follow the signs!  Carpool with friends!

Remember, this show is Thursday-Friday-Saturday.  A CCQ tradition.
