Opportunity Quilt!

Here is a preview of our spectacular Double Wedding Ring that will be the Woolley Fiber Quilters raffle quilt for 2010-2011! Tickets go on sale June 4, 2010 at the Blast of Blooms quilt show. This quilt is 92 inches square and is the loving work of an anonymous piecer and longarm quilted by local pro Patsi Hanseth.

The Sedro-Woolley American Legion Auxiliary and Woolley Fiber Quilters have partnered to bring you this opportunity. Be sure to see it at the quilt show in downtown Sedro-Woolley!

Getting Closer!

We are "all the buzz" in Sedro-Woolley this week, as the windows at our show venue were painted with a special message! Quilters always home in on the word "quilt", especially when it identifies a show or a shop!

Thanks to Sheila Stewart for our professional window decor. And the wood carving is just one of many you'll see in downtown Sedro-Woolley!

How to Enter!

Word is spreading fast about the quilt show we have in store for you! If you're a quilter, enter a quilt or two! Or three! We have an registration form with all the details - hard copies of forms are available at Cascade Fabrics in Sedro-Woolley or you can ask for a soft copy by sending an inquiry to judyjj at comcast.net [replace the "at" with the "at" sign - posted this way to discourage bot e'mail harvesters].

Remember that we need a photo of your finished quilt with the entry form. Attach a photo or print out a digital photo on the back of the form. So easy!

Tell your friends about the show so they can enter, too!

Quilters' Boutique

One of the great features of the Blast of Blooms quilt show will be a Quilters' Boutique! Local quilters will offer finished items for sale - one of the most commonly asked questions at quilt shows is, "Can I buy a quilt?"

There will be quilts and quilted items for sale through the show's boutique, all lovingly crafted by local folks. We also invite local quilters to contact us (through this blog) and place their items for sale with us. Details are available on inquiry.

Anticipation is really building for the quilt show and all of the other fun events on Blast from the Past weekend! You should plan to be in downtown Sedro-Woolley!

The Quilt Show that Grew!

The Woolley Fibers Quilt Show has moved - slightly! North on Metcalf about 1.5 blocks.

The location for our show will now be 829 Metcalf, which is a large, former department store on the northeast corner of the intersection at Metcalf and State streets.

In Sedro-Woolley, this building is known as the former JC Penney store or the former Jungquist Furniture store.

While the building is in its transition to new retail occupants, the building's owner has agreed to let us have the quilt show in this location! So now we have lots of room to show you 200+ quilts, vendors, and demonstrations!

Come see us on June 4-5-6!
