Sunbonnet Sues in Sequim!

The annual Sequim Lavender Festival brings a lot of folks to town - but so do the quilts!  What a great event they have for a midsummer adventure.  You need to take a day or a weekend and come on out to Sequim for the lavender, the friendliness, and the quilt show!

I saw the raffle quilt last year when it was still just a top and I KNEW that it would be spectacular!  And it is!  Their theme is "Don't bug me, I'm quilting".  Bugs galore!



And because Sequim is the World Headquarters for The Applique Society you can always expect some great applique.  Bugs and flowers and everything!

Threadmongers will be there - my 10th year with the Sunbonnet Sues!  So much fun and many long time friends.  You need thread!

Blast of Birds quilt show - July 14-15-16!

What better way for me to celebrate Threadmongers' TWELVE YEAR ANNIVERSARY than to be a vendor at my own guild's quilt show!! 


Woolley Fiber Quilters will have their 8th annual quilt show July 14-15-16 at Cascade Middle School in Sedro-Woolley.  We have finally found a venue that allows us to have the entire show in one place, but we had to tweak the show dates a little and move from June to July.  This popular show will be fun and frenzied, as usual, and we have SO MANY lovely things to show you!

250+ quilts on display, member boutique, vendors, demonstrations, and the unforgettable BED TURNING, brought to you by Teri Bever.  What will she have up her sleeve this year?  Come and find out!



The entrance to Cascade Middle School is just off Highway 9; turn right on the McGarigle Road and you'll see the quilt show signs immediately.  Great parking!

Threadmongers will be part of nine excellent vendors for you.  Need scissors sharpened?   Bring them along!  Butch Stearns will be set up to sharpen them!

Thanks to all my customers who have supported me for 12 years - especially my VERY FIRST CUSTOMER in 2005, Alene Kempton Gragg!  I remind her of this every year.  She is part of my long-time quilting group, the Variable Stars in Vancouver WA.  Shout out to them and to the many customers who have become friends through the years.  Just had two calls from customer/friends this week!  A sweet anniversary.  Thank you all.



I'm sure YOU NEED THREAD!  See you at Blast of Birds this weekend!
