Westside Quilters Guild - Hillsboro Oregon - October 7-8!

The Portland Metro Area has a zillion quilters!  Many of them are on the "west side" and enjoy quilting camaraderie with the Westside Quilters Guild!

So they're planning a GREAT show for you at the Tuality Health Education Center in beautiful Hillsboro.  I have been visiting that town for many years - primarily in my former career - but I have been to this quilt show, too, and it is so much fun!

October 7-8 is coming up soon.  Threadmongers will be there plus some other popular vendors and a member boutique.  

Featured quilters are Violet Craft and AnnMarie Cowley.  I KNOW you have been admiring Violet Craft designs lately. 

Did you know that you can get to Hillsboro on the MAX train?  I have done it.

Anyway, here's the link:

Be sure to turn out and support quilt guild shows.  The guilds do such wonderful charity work all year around and they are so proud to share their love of quilting with neighbors, friends, and other quilters!

Sea Pals/Ocean Shores Quilt Show Sept. 15-16-17!

It's that lovely time of year again - fall!  When the rains return to give us some relief from wildfires and dust, and when our thoughts turn to quilting!

Often, when it's raining inland it's sunny at the beach!  You know this is true if you're a native Pacific Northwest person.  Well, the Sea Pals will have another AMAZING quilt show, rain or shine!

This is one of the best quilt shows in one of the best venues that happens all year.  A perfect time for you to come on out and enjoy summer's waning days and get jazzed up for your wintertime quilting. 

Threadmongers will be there!  Wouldn't miss it.  The Sea Pals and I have a long relationship and I just love their guild and their show. 

This year I'm doing my demo, "#12 Threads and their Friends".  If you are thinking about using these extra heavy threads in your projects, come on out for the demo and a great selection from three manufacturers!

Also, are you looking for the new 80-weight Aurifil thread?  It's coming in!  Come and see what I have in stock and give it a try. 

So plan a trip to the beach!  It's so can almost smell the ocean air.  Come on out and enjoy it for real!
