As the title to this post implies, we stopped by the tiny Latimer Quilt and Textile Center before we left Tillamook. It is a lovely little place, a former school, that is a living history museum. They still offer classes in all of the important things in life: knitting, weaving, spinning, tatting, lace making, quilting, etc.
Happily, we made our small donation to the museum (entry $3 per person, what a steal!) and wandered amongst the rooms.
The exhibits here are constantly changing. They have work done by members and traveling exhibits as well.
I found a bit of tatting,
amongst the looms. And, while it might not have been Avi’s favorite stop of the day, he certainly didn’t complain about it. 🙂
I even took a few photos from the traveling exhibit. The quilts are by an Australian designer/artist, Cynthia Corbin. As the gal at the entrance desk said, “these are the most densely quilted pieces I have ever seen. They must have taken forever to quilt.” I completely agree with her.
For those of you who are so inclined, there are more photos in my flickr account.
And that was most of my trip to Portland. Though I do have a few more photos to share from the flight. Yes, I did manage to take pictures through the window on my flight home.
