Blast of Bubbles quilt show is coming up fast!

The Woolley Fiber Quilters are working hard to prepare for our fourth annual quilt show! 

Everyone is welcome to enter quilts in the show - just pick up a registration form at Cascade Fabrics in Sedro-Woolley or leave a message here and we'll e'mail you one! 

Our theme is "Blast of Bubbles" so any quilt featuring circles qualifies for the "theme" category.  All other quilts will fit nicely in other categories.  Our "youth" category is for quilts made by young people under 19 years of age - if you're older than that but young at heart..choose a standard category!

You are also encouraged to volunteer for at least a two-hour shift at the show so when you submit your registration form (or earlier!) we'll want to get a "yes" from you about volunteering.

This is a true community quilt show open to all and intended to represent the MANY quilters in the Sedro-Woolley and Skagit County area.  Even if you're from out of our immediate area, you're welcome to enter, volunteer, and attend!

Once again we'll be in downtown Sedro-Woolley - one of our locations is 817 Metcalf and you'll see where the other one is soon.  We have LOTS OF ROOM for YOUR quilts!

This year we'll feature a "bed turning" of vintage quilts and tell their stories.  This is a fun event that we have been wanting to bring you for a long time.  Don't miss it!

So plan to join in the fun and show us what you've been working on!  Encourage the quilt-appreciators you know to attend the show and admire the hard work of all our quilters!  We'll have a boutique where finished items can be purchased, vendors who are happy to bring quilting supplies for your consideration, and Blast From the Past will be right outside the door!

Remember the vintage car show on Sunday.  And the kids' contests are Saturday, including the adult jump rope smackdown competition!!! 

Feeling lucky?  Our raffle quilt is on display at Cascade Fabrics right now!

There's so much going on during Blast From the Past weekend - one of our town's favorite festivals.  All in downtown Sedro-Woolley!
