Sew Many Quilts

As I mentioned yesterday, this week is full of activities and classes surrounding the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show which will culminate on Saturday with the largest outdoor quilt show in the world.  Impressive, huh?   There are thousands of people who attend the week long events and, of course, they love to shop.    We are very lucky here to have quite a few shops to visit.

I used to work at Sew Many Quilts in Bend, OR for a few years,  but now I just help fill in during the chaos busyness.    I thought I'd show you some pictures of the shop all decked out for the many visitors and tourists.  (I'll be there Friday and Saturday, so if you're in the area, stop by and say hi)

You know I have to start with the wool section!

This is Denise who can't wait to help you!

Christmas section.

Fun and colorful.

All about kids.

Always fun to find little surprises when you're shopping.

This is the view when you walk in the door.   There's a whole other section just like this.

Quilts everywhere!

Linda, our embroidery expert, is also the purse expert.   She has made so many I bet she doesn't even know the count.

30's reproduction fabrics.


Need a new Bernina?   They are more than happy to help you.

I hang out in this section a lot.   Kansas Troubles and Jo Morton fabrics.   Yummy!

I just got this book and it's wonderful.    But then I'm a huge Kim Diehl fan.

I better make this into 2 posts since I took so many pictures (I really have a habit of doing that, don't I?)

Anyway, if you see anything you like, be sure to give them a call or check out their website.   (BUT, don't call this week because you probably won't even get through on the phone)!

Also, you can follow their blog.

I'd definitely have to mortgage our house if I ever visited that shop. Now that is what I call a quilter's dream!

My dream is to visit the Sisters quilt day.

Oh how I wish to live near a shop like this one! I'd be in debt! Have fun, I hope you meet many blog friends.

It's like Quilter's Disneyland. I think I would work for fabric 'cuz my paycheck would go right back into the store. :o)

Would love to shop there, and love how they have sections with the different styles and fabrics, makes it fun to shop and easier to find the things we love.

OMG - I think I just spent my yearly (no, maybe 5 years) budget in there! I'd find it hard to work there because everything I made would go back into goodies! Great post, Anne!
