35th Annual Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show is Today
Don't we wish we were there? This is the largest outdoor quilt show in the world. The show started in 1975 when Jean Wells Keenan hung a dozen quilts outside her quilt shop, The Stitchin' Post in the town of Sisters, Oregon. The quilts were made by her students. Soon other quilters added their quilts to the display. Now they have 12,500 visitors who attend the show. They've raised over $50,000 for local charities since 2004. Wow!
