patricia belyea—at the garden club
For over two years, Patricia Belyea has been creating a unique series of quilts with her new curved-piecing technique—Inserted Curves. JaponTex will feature an exhibit of this work, as well as a talk by Patricia at 1:30pm.
okan arts—at the garden club
Patricia Belyea and Victoria Stone of Okan Arts will offer vintage Japanese textiles—yukata cottons, kimono wools, and traditional clothing including children’s kimono. And, by popular demand, stash packs! All on sale!
On the top of each hour, Victoria will be presenting demos of the Sashiko 2 sewing machine that creates a dashed stitch that looks like hand-stitching!
quilting foxes—at the garden club
Denny Fox of Quilting Foxes will bring contemporary Japanese fabrics—including prints, weaves, taupes, and hand-dyeds—from her Sedro Wolley shop for JaponTex. Also, there will be lots of supplies for sashiko and hand-stitching projects. And everything will be on sale!
indigo stitch—on the waterfront
On La Conner’s historic waterfront is Sylvia Pippen’s hand-stitch shop—Indigo Stitch. Sylvia will be joining the JaponTex festivities with a store-wide 20% off sale. (A few exclusions may apply.)
