      Fifty Years of Quiltmaking - Schlotterback Collection
      La Conner Quilt & Textile Museum 703 South 2nd St La Conner, WA 98257.
      On the first floor this quarter, we feature selections from our permanent collection, quilts and comforters pieced by Josie Teeter Schlotterback (1882-1974). Josie, a professional seamstress, left behind many wonderful examples of her work. Her legacy includes utility comforters made of suiting samples in dark colors suitable for everyday use, crazy quilts, and colorful cotton quilts. However, Josie also left behind eighteen unfinished quilt tops, some clearly intended for utility use but others with intricate piecing and tiny bits of cloth sewn into vibrant works of art.



      The La Conner Quilt & Textile Museum has undertaken a project to finish twelve of these quilt tops. The project includes adding batting and backing to the unfinished top and then either finishing the piece by hand tying or hand quilting. The Schlotterback project is funded in part by the Quilter's Guild of Dallas, Helena Hibbs Endowment Fund. The exhibit also includes Josie's sewing trunk and sewing aids, including quilt blocks, patterns and other memorabilia.

      Works of Junko Maeda
      La Conner Quilt & Textile Museum 703 South 2nd St, PO Box 1270 La Conner, WA 98257
      For nearly forty-five years, Junko Maeda has been working with natural Japanese fiber textiles such as silk, linen and cotton. They are used not only in quilts but in piece works, clothing, Sashiko works, etc. For the past several years, she has been inspired by handicraft called "Pojagi." Pojagi is Korean women's traditional patchwork handed down from mother to daughter in the family. Junko has interpreted the construction, color and the beauty of Pojagi to her own style, creating new art works.

      Wishes Through Our Hands
      La Conner Quilt & Textile Museum 703 South 2nd St, PO Box 1270 La Conner, WA 98257
      Ninth biennial Japanese quilt exhibit. Guest Curator, Miwako Kimura, states, "Quiltmaking is converting our wishes into tangible form through the use of our hands. It starts with pouring our wish and mind in the quilt for someone we care, for our own dreams, or for serving our society. We have learned the countless patterns and techniques for quilt making from your country, and at the same time, we are thrilled to practice the 'heartfelt gift in every stitch' tradition of quilt making."

    • Prose Writing at its Best - Info Session
      Village Books 1200 11th St Bellingham, WA 98225
      When prose writing is at its best, a kind of alchemy occurs, a fusion of clarity, grace and style. This combustion creates the optimum reading experience: the narrative has energy to pull readers through the pages, but the writing is so powerful, evocative that readers also want to linger.

      Clarity, grace and style are elusive qualities. More easily addressed, discussed are allied elements, literary/artistic/editorial tactics and choices on the part of the writer. This class moves beyond the confines of genre to help all prose writers recognize, develop and use those tactics effectively.

      Class Time

      Each week there will be new prompt that writers will take home and work from; they'll return to class with material to read aloud and stimulate discussion. Writers will not be critiquing one another's work on paper, but responding to others' in class, and having their ideas and material discussed as well. We will all grow increasingly aware of and attuned to one another's projects as the weeks and terms progress. At the end of each term, all writers will refine and expand one piece of work they've done. Our goals are not consecutive chapters in a whole, polished manuscript, but enhancing the skills and insights each writer brings to the work itself. Hence, it is ideal to take all three courses in the series offered in the 9-month program. A certificate is awarded to those participants that successfully complete all three courses.

    • McIntyre Hall Presents: A Moving Sound
      McIntyre Hall Performing Arts Center 2501 E College Way Mount Vernon, WA 98273
      Based out of Taiwan, A Moving Sound offers a unique and exciting new development in the progression of both traditional and contemporary Chinese music. A Moving Sound blends music traditions from Taiwan, China, and other Asian countries; the result is unique and often haunting. Mia Hsieh has a dreamy, almost hypnotic voice, and her accompanying musicians are every bit as intriguing. AMS is a balance between east and west, and the past and the present. Join us at 6:00PM for a FREE Lecture Demonstration focusing on an introduction to Taiwanese culture and Chinese music.

      Blast from the Past
      Metcalf Street downtown Sedro-Woolley for Arts and Crafts, Family fun activities (at Hammer Heritage Square on Saturday), Walking water balls and pony rides. Car Show Sunday on Woodworth from Museum to the Post Office
      The 2014 edition of Blast From The Past will be held June 6-8 and the event chairman Justin Ward of Pat Rimmer Les Schwab Tires says this will be one of the greatest in the history of Blast events. The annual event will begin on June 6th with a downtown business sidewalk sale and dress-up contest from 9-5. The Woolley Fibers Quilt Show is Friday and Saturday from 10:00-6:00 and the ever popular Quilt Awards given Saturday afternoon. Metcalf Street will be lined with over 70 vendors and food booths that will give you plenty of opportunity to find that unique item for Fathers Day or other gift giving times this year. The year round downtown merchants are holding sales and are open for you to enjoy the unique and friendly Sedro-Woolley shopping experience as well. Friday night wraps up with Gallery Night sponsored by the Arts Council of Sedro-Woolley.



      Saturday promises more shopping and vendors with live music by the Mac Daddy Band from Noon until 4:00 and a live remote with KAPS Radio on AM660 and 102.1FM from 10:00-1:00. Saturday afternoon will be a BLAST for young and old with the Blast from the Past games. The best in Skagit County will be crowned in a variety of events including Hula Hoop, Jump Rope, and Whipped Cream Eating for the kids. Adults will compete in Pizza Eating, Hula Hoop, and Jump Rope. Last years jump rope champion Mike Yeoman suffered a recent knee injury which may open the door for perennial runner-up David Bricka to capture the elusive title. Be there to watch the drama!



      The car show on Sunday at Riverfront Park is always a community favorite and runs from 8:00 until 3:00. As always Blast from the Past has something for every member of the family and like all great family events there is no charge for this event.
