Block Party Quilters present the last guild show of 2016 - Nov. 11-12-13!

The Block Party Quilters have creative inspiration for you at their annual quilt show Nov. 11-12-13 at the Issaquah Community Center!

This is the last "guild" quilt show in Western Washington of the year - and the vendors are always a little manic for the occasion! 

You'll enjoy the members' entries plus those of their featured quilter, Lisa Jenni.  She's a local standout and if you are a frequent quilt show attendee in these parts, you are probably familiar with her interesting work. 

BPQ always has a great tea room and boutique, as well as some super door prizes! 

And the Issaquah Community Center is the perfect venue for the show - lots of light comes in, even on the gray November days!

Come early and stay late!  Threadmongers will be there - it will be a long winter and YOU NEED THREAD!!
