Description: The 2013 Quilt & Fiber Art Festival will feature an exhibition of juried and judged quilts, fiber art and wearable art. Maple Hall will host the Quilt Show, specialty vendors, and silent auction. The Garden Club will host more vendors and the Fiber Arts & Wearables Show while the Museum features three floors of exhibits. What better way to start the Festival than with a Kick-Off Party! Join us the evening before the Festival begins for some lighthearted fun at the Swinomish Yacht Club. The Award Winners will be announced, door prizes, small silent and live auctions and some other fun we have up our sleeves. We have an exciting roster of workshops lined during the Festival. Whether you enjoy beading, hand applique, piecing, or simply trying something new, we have unique workshops. With an array of one- or two-day workshops to choose from, we are sure you will find that unique workshop! Gail Harker will be presenting a lecture called “Immersed in Color.” Other events include a Quilt Walk in La Conner Shops September 1 – October 14, 2013. Stroll through the unique shops in La Conner to view the beautiful quilts from the EverGreen Quilters from Bellingham, Washington. Learn more at www.laconnerquilts.com; 360-466-4288
