The Wade Creek House, located on an acre in the city limits of Estacada, has a real country feel. Chickens, a country garden, old grain silo, and the quaint 1940's house and wonderful barn is just the beginning of what you will find.

Our many vendors are great at shopping, salvaging and scavenging. We have lots of treasures: vintage, primitive, rusty, old, antiques, reclaimed, repurposed, revived, military, collectibles, home, garden and much more. Our vendors make sure there is something for everyone. So bring a friend and come for a visit.. Estacada has lots to offer.

QUILTING 101 - THE BEGINNING OF A SAMPLER QUILT

We had such fun in Debbie Ingamell's Block-A-Month Quilting Class.  I quilted several years ago but she taught me some things I didn't know about how to ensure that your points lined up..



Debbie is keeping it to a small group.  Maximum of 10 so we still have a couple slots to add more people.   Not everyone had sewing experience but Debbie made it easy.  You can tell she loves to teach.  She started out with introductions to rotary cutters something I had not used when I used to quilt.  How easy that was.


Debbie brought the sewing machines, iron and ironing boards, patterns and everything we needed.  She is even going with us to help us pick out our fabric..







A little sewing..





And the final result



These were our practice blocks made from fabric that Debbie provided.  We will be using our own fabric at the next class.  Thank you Debbie for making this fun, easy, and I am looking forward to the next class.........

This is the quilt we are making




Good friends are like quilts - they age with you yet never lose their warmth.
