On March 31st and April 1st, the Northwest Quilt Museum in La Conner, Washington hosts StashFest. The Northwest Quilt Museum is one of only 18 quilt museums, with StashFest as a primary fundraiser. If you live in the region, it’s worth the drive, because it’s not just a stash sale. There are the “StashFest Experiences,” with well-known speakers. I think of Lorraine Torrence garment pattern designer and teacher, but she’s also a quilting guru; she’s presenting on “quilt therapy.” Most of the other speakers described at StashFest.com are known for their quilting techniques, which makes sense for the location at the Northwest Quilt Museum!
Door prizes, a book sale and a flea market round out the weekend. It sounds like loads of fun and a great way to get out with a friend. There’s so much more information on their Web site — have a look so you can build the case for a day out! StashFest.com
