Homestream Park

Phil Davis
Years after emerging from its cobbled nest, a salmon returns to that same spot. Hundreds of river miles, thousands in the ocean, 9 dams, out and back, and all the perils in between. Paired now with another, preparing their own nest, a redd, to spawn the next generation. Back, in their home stream. Homestream Park is dedicated to the rivers and fish of the Methow Valley. A place to pause, to reflect, to observe. And mostly to consider our role and responsibility in protecting the wild of these rivers forever. Located on 2 acres of riverfront just downstream from the town of Winthrop, WA, the park will include an interpretive trail, sculptures, and a public gathering area with covered shelters, picnic tables, and a kid's play fort. The land will be restored to its natural riparian and floodplain condition.

Methow Quilting

I offer Longarm quilting services with my Gammill Longarm quilting machine. I have been providing quilting services in Winthrop for 5 years. I can do any quilt as an Edge-to-Edge where you pick out a design from the many 1000’s that I have. This tends to be the most economical way to have your quilting done as I just multiply length x width x price per square inch. I also love to be able to custom quilt a quilt with both computer designs and my own designs. For this type of work, the price per square inch goes up and sometimes is just a per hour charge depending on the amount of custom quilting.
