The WADE CREEK HOUSE ANTIQUES opened in 2007. Located in an old 1940's home, we have expanded many times so there are many areas for you to browse. Located on an acre in Estacada, Oregon, your children can visit with our chickens (yes, we sell eggs) as you look around.

We are much more than an antiques store. We host four fundraisers every year; The Chicken Chat & Coop tour in April, Chairs for Charity in June, Estacada Garden Tour in July, and Santa in December. We also have three OUTDOOR VINTAGE MARKETS every summer and hold classes and workshops throughout the year. You can find details BELOW.

OUR VENDORS LOVE TO SHOP FOR YOU. They specialize in old, rusty, antique, primitive, vintage, recycled, revived, repurposed, salvaged, scavenged, chippy, farm, collectibles, indoor and outdoor d├ęcor. Come and see what they have found for you!!

OPEN DAILY - MONDAY - SATURDAY 10a - 6p and SUNDAY 11a - 5p.

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.
