Diamonds in the Rough Quilt Show 2021

Diamond in the Rough Quilt Show

Planning is under way for our 2021 quilt show in July. This is our 17th Annual and we haven’t missed a year yet. While a lot of shows closed up show last year or went virtual, we had an outdoor drive-through show and it was a total success. A big thank you so my loyal team that were able to show up and help, even during the pandemic. Nothing will stop the Pine Needlers!

So we’d love to see you out at the show this year! We are going to be a nice large gym, with plenty of airflow and all COVID protocols in place. Come out and see our beautiful raffle quilt and all the varied quilts we will have on display. We typically have over 100 quilts, so there is something for everyone to enjoy.

To support our FREE event, you can purchase raffle tickets on our Eventbrite site. For more information on the show, or to enter your quilt, check out our show website. It’s FREE to attend the show.

New Zone Gallery in Eugene

New Zone Gallery in Eugene is reopening in it’s new location! My friend Kathy has one of her quilts hanging on display there. Kathy is both an amazing jewelry artist (Moonsilver Studio) and a quilt artist.

Check out the New Zone Gallery information online as it’s a wonderful story of how they came to be, and who they are.

Support local artists!

Hiking at Waldo Lake

Another fantastic hike. Except this time it was my first backpacking trip in 40 years! Just one night, but enough to get my feet wet (which I didn’t actually because the weather was amazing!). The coffee was great, the scenery lovely, and the trail was virtually empty except our little hiking party. So fun to try this again after so many years have gone by. Having the right gear is completely amazing.
