Save The Date- Quilts on the Beach

Quilts on the Beach #3

The Cama Beach Quilters will hold their third open-air quilt show on the beach at Cama Beach State Park at 1880 S. West Camano Drive. from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, July 28, rain or shine.  This year’s show will feature a new group of 50 of the more than 160 quilts the group has made since 2002 for the cabins at the park.  In addition to the bed-size quilts, most of which will be for sale, there will be a number of small quilts made by group members.  Proceeds from these sales will be used to professionally quilt the new bed-size tops that have been made by the group in the past year.  Another new feature this year will be a “studio sale” of quilt-related items and cookbooks in the Cama Center.  Also in the Cama Center there will be quilt-related activities for all ages, including some sewing of quilt blocks, flower pounding, and a bed-turning of antique quilts.  The Cama CafĂ© will also be open during the show for brunch or lunch.  This year’s queen-size raffle quilt, Cama Beach Stars, will be shown and tickets will be available.  All proceeds from this quilt will be used by the Cama Beach Foundation to support educational activities in the Camano state parks.  The show and other events are free, but a Discover Pass (available at the Cama Welcome Center) is required for parking.  Shuttles will be available between the parking lots and the beach.  If you have questions, call Pam at 360-387-4550.

This has been a great show. Car pool with someone. You can always park here, Camano Island Coffee Roasters , or Del Fox (great place to grab a bbq something for lunch). They are both at Terry's Corner, go right at the first stop light on Camano Island. 

Outside to enjoy the sunshine today for me. How about you?
