Pendleton Blankets

Have you ever been to a Pendleton Store? It is overwhelming to try to decide a favorite blanket. The colors, designs and beauty are beautiful.  When I visit Portland, sometimes we visit an outlet store. The store has many of the standard blanket styles. The really neat thing about this store is that there are many unique, one of a kind blankets. The designers are always trying to create new blankets. This store sells these special items, and they are really gorgeous! Deciding is so difficult.  The store sells small cuts of fabric, to use for your own creations. I have made three small blankets from these cuts. There are odds and ends, buttons, zippers, edge binding, and fabric by the yard. It is so easy to spend a hour in the store.

If you ever have a chance to go on a tour of the weaving and blanket looms at Washougal WA, or Pendleton OR, don't miss it... So interesting and fun to see the process to weave the wool.
