If you're considering your summer vacation plans, for this year or years to come, you might want to add a week in July at Sisters, Oregon, to the list. The Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show and the week of classes and workshops leading up to it, Quilter's Affair, is one of my favorite events of the year. I look forward to it each summer now, since last year was my first year there.

Jean Wells and Valori Wells outside of the Stitchin' Post with the quilts on display on the side of the shop. It was definitely one of the coolest quilt displays I've seen.
Fire fighters hanging the quilts on the side of the building.

Me with my #ToesintheSandQAL quilt.
The week of being with quilters from across the country and around the globe is a very inspiring one for me. I love to see the fabric selections and progress that my student quilters make during the classes and sewing free time.
This year I'm teaching 5 different classes and each one is about one of my quilt patterns that uses a Hex N More or Sidekick ruler, or both rulers. If you're looking to get in on the fun this year and you haven't registered yet, it looks like there might be a *few* spots left in my Disco class I'm teaching on Tuesday, July 8. A goal of mine this year to teach to rooms of quilters that are as full as they can be, and we're off to good start here!
Have you taken a quilter's vacation before? Which retreats or quilting events have your been or which ones are on your list to get to one day? Tell me about them in the comments below. Thanks!

This show is on my someday bucket list! I cannot wait to see it vicariously through you!
I am rather late to this party of a blog of yours, so forgive this question if the answer is obvious to long term followers, but I MUST know. That spring green quilt with the bright colors being held up in the last picture, WHAT is that quilt? Is it one of yours? Thank you, and I really enjoy your quilts/blog/tools.
Oh it looks so wonderful! Next year maybe...don't you need an assistant?
So fun! I'll make it up there one of these years :-)
I have had this on my bucket list forever. But when I take a vacation my DH comes too as we travel on a motorcycle. Perhaps since in Oregon I can pull out the convincer card. Here's hoping it works.
Looks like an amazing event! Congrats on the teaching events and have a great time!
