Sister’s Quilt Show @ Sisters Oregon

Quilting-Poster

Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show’s mission is to educate and inspire the public about the art of quilting and to benefit the school and community groups of Sisters and Central Oregon.  The show began when the founder, Jean Wells Keenan, hung a dozen quilts made by her students outside her quilt shop on a Saturday in July.  A few more ladies brought their quilts to show, then a few more and a few more.  The show became an annual event, hosted by the East of the Cascades quilt guild.  As the show gained in size and popularity it outgrew the resources of the guild.  In 2003, an Executive Director was hired to manage the show and new events were added including the Around the Block Quilt Walk and Fiber Arts Stroll, Wish Upon a Card and other fundraisers for local causes. Walk the streets through Sisters and admire the amazing quilting and small Western town.
