Quilt Show is coming up!

Well, it is that time of year where most who live in Sisters head out of town! It is quilt show time and the highway gets shut down and driving through town is impossible. It is time for The Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show! The largest outdoor quilt show in the world! Visit the web site for The Stitchin' Post and get the calendar for all the events for the week leading up to the quilt show. That address is www.stitchinpost.com.

I got a call today from a lady in California who discovered me through this blog. She was wanting to get more information on another quilt show that was in the area. The Pineneedlers Quilt Show. This is a show that is being held on July 11th from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm-ish. The show displays products of fantastic workmanship displayed in an environment that reminds you of days gone by. Some of the quilts are for sale. There also has been a "fabric salad" area where you can buy a bag of scraps for $1.00. I am not sure if it is going to be there this year or not. But there is always the ever-popular potholders for sale! The monies made from the show go to fund scholarships for kids who attended Black Butte School.

I was going to post some photos but realized that my camera is at my parents house! So we have a photoless post, but hopefully it was full of enough information to get you interested in attending this years festivities!

Thanks for popping in!

P.S. I am working the ambulance that will be posted in the middle of town. We will have free water and first aid supplies. Pop in and say HI. I would love to meet you...

I am so bummed! I lived there for two summers and never went to the quilt show. If ever I make it back there during the show I vow to go!

What a surprise! I put your name and e-mail in my Outlook address book and up popped your blog as well! So, just had to come take a peek!! :-)

I have only made two quilts in my lifetime. I can't stay focused on a project that long so guess that's why I like stamping.

It was fun getting to know you a little better throught your blog!
