Sisters Week

Hello friends!! This week is the start of the classes leading up to the wonderful Outdoor quilt show in Sisters, Oregon. I am normally up in Sunriver sewing with friends but family first this year so I will be going on Friday. Unfortunately one of our employees is going on vacation next week so my Sunriver sewathon will be cut short. I thought I'd take advantage of my open week and go to Sisters.
Of course I had to stop by the Stitchin' Post as they always do such a nice job at getting the store ready for a busy week. They also have a store at the high school were classes are and boy does that make it convenient- I shopped twice!! hahahaha
My main reason for going to Sisters was to meet Pam from Library Gal Quilts. She was taking a class with Kathy D of Material Obsession fame. Watch her blog for her wonderful red quilt.
I felt so comfortable with Pam right away! She was so friendly and warm and genuine. I hope this will not be the last time we meet.

Look at this super cute mug rug she gave to me. Isn't it fantastic?!

I also got to meet Carmen and her daughter, Amanda, (I sure hope that is their names) from Honey Run Quilt shop in Chico, CA.  Carmen just got out of a class with Janet Bolton and her little art quilt was amazing!! I look forward to seeing it on her blog.

After I left Sisters I made my way to Bend to meet my friend Randy at Sew Many Quilts.  They were having an open house before the craziness of the week set it.

Tomorrow I am meeting my blog friend Juliann who is coming for classes. Since I am not sewing with friends this week I do feel like I am missing out on the festivities. Maybe next year I'll take a class or two.

  2. It all sounds like lots of fun to me!! If I was going I'd want to go to Bill Volckening's talk on Old Quilts. 4 friends of mine are driving down for the weekend - how I wish I could have gone with them...

  22. Lori,

    Even tho you couldn't go to the whole thing this year (and next year will be even better) it sure sounds like you're making some great fun out of what you can do. How special to meet up with some blogging friends. That's such a special treat. That makes me extra happy for you. ~ What a cute mug rug and the thoughtfulness behind it makes it all the more special. A treasure.
