Blast of Farms quilt show opens 10:00 a.m. Friday, June 5th!

Here are the basic things you need to know about our DOWNTOWN SEDRO-WOOLLEY quilt show!

We have FOUR locations this year.  Be sure to see everything!

817 Metcalf - Sedro-Woolley Community Fellowship Church (formerly Oliver Hammer and now next door to Oliver Hammer). Medium, Small, Extra Small, Youth, "Other", and some Large quilts are hung in this building.  Our vendors are here and our raffle quilt is here (you need tickets).  Also our popular "boutique" where you can shop for locally handcrafted items.  Come early!  Many of these items are one of a kind!

903A Metcalf - formerly Curves - Most of the Large quilts are here. 

824 Metcalf - Cascade Fabrics!  Holiday, Challenge, and Theme quilts (including the much anticipated "Corn Challenge" are in the classroom at the rear of the store.

810 Metcalf - Sedro-Woolley Chamber of Commerce.  Our "Bed-Turning" will be held here at 11 and 2 each day of the show.  Come early to get a seat!  Takes about 30 minutes.  Everyone loves to see vintage quilts and hear their stories. 

Pay $3 admission at the 817 or 903A buildings and have your hand stamped. 
Remember there will be a street fair and lots going on!

Public bathrooms are under the clock tower at Hammer Heritage Square (you can't miss it) and there are modern port-a-potties just around the corner from Video West, on Woodworth street.

Our show vendors are at the 817 Metcalf building:

Quilter's Roost
Back Porch Quilting
Machine Quilting Experience

Our spectacular raffle quilt, "Blast of Freedom" is at the 817 Metcalf building and the winning ticket will be drawn at 4 p.m. on Saturday!  Then we'll reveal our new raffle sure to see another amazing work of art!

Parking:  There are municipal lots available on the south end of Metcalf (look for the "horse"), behind The Woolley Market, and at the north end of Metcalf just before Northern street.  And there are lots of other places to park.  The three blocks of Metcalf north of State Street will be closed for the street fair.

Motorcycle show Saturday.  Kids' games and the fiercely competitive Adult Jump Rope contest on Saturday.  Vintage Car Show Sunday. 

Finally, be sure to VOTE for your favorite quilts in each category with a People's Choice ballot.  Votes will be tallied and the winners announced late Saturday afternoon, so get your votes in early!

See you and all of your friends tomorrow at Blast of Farms!!
