StashFest 2013 took place on April 6 & 7 this year. StashFest is a dynamic fundraising event for the La Conner Quilt & Textile Museum! Artisan fabric designers and small companies with unique fabric and embellishment offerings were here for the two-day sale at the La Conner Civic Garden Club, just across the street from the museum. In addition to a book sale, hourly door prizes, and Insider Visit opportunities, fine offerings from these hand-selected Presenters were available:
- Annie Lewis, Hand Silk Screened Fabrics, original designs on re-purposed fabrics to create bold and energetic patterns.
- The CQA Collection, Collectors’ Choice Fabrics – expect hand-dyed, hand painted, vintage, and global fabrics—with a label to give you background information on the provenance of each treasure.
- Melanie Hopkins and Laurie Spencer, Hand-dyed Kona Cottons – This mother/daughter team from Lake Stevens began dyeing fabrics ten years ago.
- Mary Ogwel, Authentic African Cottons – The high quality cottons are printed, batiked or tie-dyed. Mary’s family business, located in Arizona, helps African women pull themselves out of poverty and give their daughters a high school education.
- Dean and Linda Moran, master dyers from Arizona, with a phenomenal collection of marbled fabrics
- Patricia Belyea, an artisan quilter from Seattle, with her extensive collection of vintage Japanese yukata cottons
- Ellen Dooley, a bead artist from the Pilchuck area, with her lampwork glass beads for embellishing
- Margot Myers, a batik artist from Bellingham, with cotton yardage printed with her own copper stamps
- Beverly Hunnicutt, a Japanophile and tailor from Seattle, with a huge selection of vintage kimono silks
