      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.

      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.

      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."

      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.
