Woolley Fiber Quilters (WFQ) are preparing for the upcoming “Journeys” Quilt and Fiber Show on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, July 14, 15, 16, in Sedro-Woolley at Cascade Middle School. At this annual show, local crafters plan to exhibit 300 quilts and fiber art pieces.
The show also features quilt supply vendors, a member boutique, demonstrations, kids’ scavenger hunt, a raffle quilt, and a large variety of quilts for viewing and inspiration. The popular “bed turning” presentation will return, highlighting traditional quilts and their “modern” versions.
The 2023 show’s Featured Quilter is Teri Bever, an accomplished quilter, needleworker, fiber art teacher, and certified quilt judge.
One of only three non-juried quilt shows in Skagit, Whatcom, and Island Counties during 2023, the WFQ Show strives to be a true community quilt show with fun for everyone.
The group selects a theme for each year and is using “Journeys” for the 2023 theme. Entries are associated with a category for the purpose of People’s Choice voting; as in previous years, attendees are invited to vote for their favorites in each category and the people’s favorite quilts will be awarded ribbons on Saturday afternoon.
Quilts must be preregistered to be exhibited in the show; registration forms are available at Cascade Fabrics in Sedro-Woolley, via the group’s blog site, or from any member. All local quilters are invited to exhibit quilts. The deadline for submitting registrations is June 30.
