Clark County Quilters walk on the wild side! April 6-7-8!

Clark County Quilters are in the Clark County Event center for the second year!  Right off I-5!  (Exit 9)

We had so much fun last year in a big new space with lots of room to turn around - which, of course, means better viewing of quilts! 

[Full disclosure:  I'm a member of this guild!  I lived in Vancouver WA for a long time and was active with this BIG, talented group.  Even though I moved away in 2006, I'm still a member to keep in touch with my friends!]

And you need to know the work of Featured Quilter, Barbara Shapel.  She is just amazing.
Especially since she uses lots of THREAD...
This is a three-day show so you can be sure and come.  They even offer a three-day pass!  Quilt shows are full of energy and fun.  LOTS of people spend three days at this one!
So gather up your quilty friends and zoom on over to the CCQ show - you'll want to walk on the wild side, too!  Here's the link: 
 With all this inspiration, you'll need thread!!

Quilting Economic$! Tri-City Quilters' Guild March 24-25

Those clever quilters in the Tri-Cities are putting the final touches on their quilts for the "Quilting Economic$" show this Friday and Saturday, March 24-25!  Held again at the beautiful and spacious Three Rivers Convention Center in Kennewick, the show's featured artist is Geneva Carroll and guest artist is Jason Yenter!

Come and see 400 quilts!  Plus the Raffle quilt, Community Service Quilts, Guild Challenge, a Silent Auction, and 35+ vendors!  Yes!  Threadmongers will be there! 

It's time to spice up your thread stash and be ready for the many ideas you have for your 2017 quilting year!  If you're wondering about those thick threads, I'll be doing a demo on "#12 Threads and their Friends" that you'll want to attend.  I'll give you more ideas.  So nice to be able to help quilters finish a project beautifully!

So plan to cruise on out to Kennewick and enjoy the terrific hospitality of the Tri-Cities Quilters' Guild.  Here's the link:
