The frenzy begins!  Last-minute preparations and details are taking place for the Woolley Fiber Quilters' biggest quilt show ever!

The quilt registration deadline was May 17th, but we can still accept a few entries.  Are you a little behind?  Like the rest of us?  If so, just get your forms in to Cascade Fabrics ASAP and join the fun!

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!

Did you notice that we have revealed the second location for the show?  We'll be in BOTH 817 Metcalf (the old Oliver Hammer storefront, now S-W Community Fellowship) and 829 Metcalf (the old JC Penney storefront - most recently Save-On Furniture)!!  This gives us all the ROOM WE NEED TO DISPLAY SO MANY QUILTS!  And using these storefronts allows us to be in the downtown core with Blast From The Past weekend!

We'll have more than 200 quilts on display, as well as demonstrations, a member "boutique", vendors, our 2013 and 2014 raffle quilts, and our first-ever bed-turning! 

Right outside the doors of our show is the Blast from the Past Street Fair with craft and food vendors.  Sunday is the vintage car show and also on Sunday the Eagles will have their famous breakfast!

Blast from the Past features old-fashioned kids' contests on Saturday, including pie eating and hula hooping.  And if you're from this area, you know that the adult division of the jump rope contest is usually a smackdown between some very dedicated competitors!  Perhaps there will be a dark horse contestant this year - come and see!

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!

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