Stitchin' Post Quilt Shop, Volcanoes and Coffee

The Three Sisters, Sisters, Oregon.

Sisters Coffee Company, great place to get coffee in the morning.

Interior of Sisters Coffee Company, talk about atmosphere!

Stitchin' Post Quilt shop inside, inspiration anyone?

I had to get this angle too, Stitchin' Post Quilt shop.

Me, looking out at the view, this is in town.

The Metolius River

Hello, from Renton, Washington!
Where it's sunny and warm. The land of lakes, wild deer and rabbits.

Last week we went on a road trip driving from Los Angeles, CA, north to Renton, WA.
We left Tuesday morning and got here Saturday afternoon. These photos cover our overnight stay in Sisters, Oregon. It was a half hour out of the way from Bend, Oregon, but I had to visit the Stitchin' Post Quilt shop.

The Stitchin' Post  shop hosts the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show. I've attended that show several times in the past and even entered a quilt or two. Jean Wells and her daughter Valori run the shop and are busy designing fabric and patterns and having great inspiring classes, wow.  If you're ever able to visit the shop and the town, you will enjoy yourself!

Sisters, Oregon  is a magical place. The smell of sage, the view of volcanoes is intoxicating.
That and the fact that there's a great quilt shop in town make me want to consider living there!

I hope you're having a happy Memorial Weekend!
I'll stop by to visit soon.


  1. Would love to make a trip to the quilt shop and to see the outdoor show but I know the chances are practically nil. Our local quilt guild are having their show this weekend - some wonderful quilts on display and one of them made me think of you because the colours were so you!

    1. Local quilt guilds are treasures, I'm glad you got to visit the show.

  2. Thanks for showing these beautiful photos - I should love to visit the Stitchin' Post Quilt Shop but it's a heck of a long way from New Zealand.

  3. What evocative photos. Like Maureen I wish I lived close enough to visit!

  4. That view is IN TOWN? Looks like the OUTBACKS to me! The shops, coffee and quilts, look grand though.

    1. Sisters, Oregon is a small town and the 'outback' is literally just a few blocks in any direction.
      Even though it's a small town it has a very warm welcoming heart, that's the charm.

  5. I've been to Sisters with my sisters. Not during the show though and never been to the coffee shop. Something to anticipate. Enjoy your journey.
