The Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show began when its founder, Jean Wells Keenan, hung a dozen quilts made by her students outside her quilt shop on a Saturday in July. From that humble beginning has grown the largest outdoor quilt show in the world. On the second Saturday in July, it will be celebrating its 40th Anniversary.
Around the Block Fiber Arts Stroll: Fiber artists from around Central Oregon demonstrate, exhibit, and sell their work.
Quilters Affair: Workshops, classes, and events produced by The Stitchin' Post during Mon.-Fri. of quilt week, prior to the annual quilt show.
40th Anniversary Ruby Celebration: On Wed., July 8, 5:30-8 pm, celebrate with quilters from around the world, including special guests the Quilters of Gee's Bend (ticket required).
Honored Quilters - 40th Anniversary: SOQS teamed with Island Batik to shine a spotlight on 29 quilters who have received special recognition as featured quilter, inspirational instructor, machine quilter of the year, or Quilt Show Sunday lecturer.
And, of course, the fabulous Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show itself on Saturday, July 11, 2015.
