Another quilt shop...


You may remember that I promised to tell you about another quilt shop I visited last summer.
This beautiful quilt shop is in Sisters which is in central Oregon. Everytime I go to Portland I spend a few days there with my friends.


You are welcomed by quilts floating outside.


Inside there are many quilts on display and everything a quilter may dream of...


(I bought the fabrics to make the quilt in the middle of the photo above!!!)

There were also lots of Sue Spargo quilts on display.


I think that the Stitchin' Post is owned by Jean and Valory Wells. There is also an outdoor quilt show every year in July. But unfortunately, I can't be on vacation at this time of year so I've never been!!





The town is very charming ! There are many antiques and there were a few things I would have brought back but couldn't put them in my suitcase!!






And last but not least.... Nature!!!! Indeed, nature abounds in this area as well as in all the Pacific Northwest!!







I hope you have enjoyed this little trip and I will post about other places I have visited : England, Ireland and different regions in France...

I thank you for your nice comments on my previous posts and wish you a wonderful weekend.

Until later,

  9. It is very interesting for us to have your photos and comments, David, as actually we are going to Oregon in July with some of my quilting friends and will attend the Sisters Outdoor quilt show -
    The Stitching Post quilt shop was of course on my list of quilt shops to visit there.

  11. I thought you might like to know that it is the 35th anniversary of Jean Wells Stitching Post Quilt show this year.

    Her daughter Valori is a delightful quilter and photgrapher and has encouraged her mom to start doing her own photography.

  12. Hi Sandy,
    Yes, I knew about the 35th anniversary! This is wonderful. I know that a few French quilters will be there...
    I never met Valori or Jean when I came to the shop but I read Valory's blog from time to time.
    Maybe I'll meet them next time I come...
