The show will be located again at the Elks Lodge at 155 NE Ernst Street in Oak Harbor, WA, The hours are: Friday, 1-7 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. - 6 p.m., and Sunday, 10 a.m.- 4 p.m.

Free parking is provided and the building is handicapped accessible.


Need 50 weight Aurifil thread?  Come and select from 200+ spools in the 1300 meter size.  Neutral colors - your favorites plus some new favorites.  And beautiful colors! 

What about Kreinik iron-on thread?  Yes, you need it!

And Invisafil, the 100 weight poly that everyone is talking about.  The little quilt in this photo was quilted with white Invisafil - so fine that it's barely visible.  Your quilted texture shows through, instead of the thread.  So many more uses!

Thread is half the fun of quilting!
