Latimer in Tillamook


I live in Hillsboro, 60 miles from the beautiful Oregon coast. I display some of my work at Latimer Quilt and Textile Center, which has a gallery of artists' work. If you have heard of Tillamook Cheese, that factory is a few blocks from Latamer. I drove there yesterday to deliver some recent work, some felted wool fat cats and wood and wool Santas, and a wool bird. I love it there, the place is a converted old school house, and has wonderful handmade items there. Always beautiful quilts too, new and old, which are amazing. Their "season" is on the verge of starting, as they get alot of traffic there in Summer. I love the drive to it also, passing through a forest and then seeing the green valley dotted with contented cows. I think I will make several more trips there this suummer.
