Come visit us at the Quilted Bear, located in Historic Ladner Village since 2001.
We are known for our friendly and helpful staff. If you need help in choosing colours for your quilt, stuck on a pattern or if you just want a place to hang out, come see us! We encourage browsers. Even if you don’t quilt come on in and see the samples we have around the store. Who knows, you might get “the bug” too! Our classes range from the very basic for beginners to the more challenging for seasoned quilters. The number one ingredient in our classes is fun, and there’s always follow-up help for those who need it.
Our current Charity that we make quilts for is the Delta Hospice – charity really does begin at home.
In 2002 we held our first quilt walk and it’s been growing by leaps and bounds. All quilters are encouraged to show their work. This isn’t a judged show but we do have “Viewer’s Choice” ribbons which are decided on by ballot. This year we had over 300 quilts and quilted projects hanging in the store windows in Ladner. The Quilt Walk is held on the 3rd weekend in August each year.
In 2005 the Ladner Business Association joined us to hold a combined Quilt Walk and Classic Car show. This event is the only one of it’s kind on the West Coast of North America, possibly in all of North America, and has proven very successful. Crowds are estimated at 10,000 for the day. The Quilt Walk and Classic Car show takes place the 3rd weekend of August each year.
This year the show is August 16 from 10 -4pm. The show will also feature a Pin UP Girl Pageant. There will be 25 girls, representing the various shops in the Ladner Village, dressed as 30’s and 40’s pin up girls wandering through the streets all day and then competing in the pageant in the afternoon.
