Upcoming Events in La Conner

La Conner Quilt & Textile Museum

Washington State’s only quilt museum is located at 703 2nd Street in La Conner, Washington in the Historic Gaches Mansion.

September 30 marks the opening of Play With Your Food: The Delicious Quilts of Sandy Bonsib. What can be more appealing than quilts and desserts? Sandy Bonsib, author of nine books, creates both quilts and desserts based on the recipe and food colors which inspire the name. Delight in Strawberry Shortcake and Chocolate Truffles or Key Lime Pie; both the quilts and desserts can b3e found in Sandy’s newest books! While her quilts look complex, the quilts in the dessert series use simple blocks! A teacher by profession and a quilter by passion, Sandy holds a graduate degree in education. Be sure to stop in the Museum Store to pick up a  free recipe for Sandy’s Chocolate Chip Cookies! This show runs thru December 27, 2009.
