Gearing up For Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show

The Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show is always the 2nd Saturday in July. But the work starts a whole lot earlier. I volunteered in the quilt show office today and while I'm not sure what can be photographed there, I always love to see how the Stitchin' Post is getting ready as well.

 It looked lovely as usual and most of the employees were folding fabric, either to sell as kits or FQers. When this place is jammed full of quilters the last thing you want to do is wait in line twice- once for cutting and once for paying! They also have a store at the high school where classes take place.








The town itself is a jewel and always looks so tidy with lots of blooming flowers. 

I can't wait to dig into this newspaper and read about all the special exhibits. 

Do any of my readers plan on attending? 

 Here was my view of the Three Sisters, Faith, Hope and Charity. I've climbed the higher of the 3 and plan on the other two later this summer.
   Alpacas are so cute!

I'm having a great week and I hope you are too!

  1. I'm spending that week with my Granddaughters. I have considered taking them to Sister's. I agree that Stitching post is a very busy place. It's always the 1st place I go. I am so glad to have met you and Randy last year in the Park.

  2. I keep telling myself that I'm going to Sisters, but somehow, I never make it. My boys have both been out there several times, they even went to the South Sister to spread my sister's ashes, but I haven't made it a priority. One of these days I will.

  3. Some of my friends attended the show either last summer or previous summer. They described it as a "small show". I say it is a small show with a lot of power. Seems like every quilter wants to go sometime in their life.

  4. What a great shop with so much natural light. I love how you can see the light streaming in in some of your pictures. I'd love to go to the show but in the summer I'm too busy with my kids. A good busy :0)

  13. My husband and I went several years ago. We camped in national parks from Illinois to Sisters and had a great trip. The city campground in Sisters was so convenient; we were able to walk everywhere. Would love to go back some year.

  14. I would like to go to Sisters for the show, but don't know if I will. I will be thinking about it. I have been very busy sewing up a storm lately for craft shows coming up in the fall.

  16. I was there just a month too early for the show. I used to tell myself I would go to this show someday, but I am starting to think I will just continue to miss it. Always love seeing your review of the action.
