A special gift for Cascade Fabrics!

Some rascally members of our local quilting community - Quilters by the River, Woolley Fiber Quilters, and others - got together to plan a surprise for Bobi Kelley and Cascade Fabrics!  A set of carefully collected, gently used secretarial chairs were delivered on Friday, April 17th, for use in the Cascade Fabrics classroom! 

Of course, it was a surprise!  That makes it all the more fun.  Bobi was truly surprised and a little overwhelmed.  Then the chairs came marching in!

Thanks to the people who spearheaded this project -
you know who you are - and thanks to Bobi for having
a special place in Sedro-Woolley where quilters
are always made so welcome!
Stop in at Cascade Fabrics and say hello!

2015 National Quilting Day Flash Mob Parade in Sedro-Woolley! (completely spontaneous)

We did it!  Once again!  And on a day when squalls were marching over Sedro-Woolley all day long.  Lucky for us, downtown Sedro-Woolley's shopping walkways are mostly covered!  And quilts are washable. 

Our attendance was down a bit from past years, due to the rain wusses in our quilting community.  But we had a great time and once again represented National Quilting Day and reminded everyone of our "Blast of Farms" quilt show, June 5-6-7!

Instead of starting at the Iron Horse in the municipal parking lot, our starting point was under the covered sidewalk in front of the Stiles Law Office.  And our ending point, as always, was at Cascade Fabrics!  We spent a little time shopping at Simply Silver and More...

Bobi Kelley welcomes us to Cascade Fabrics!
