Quilters Sew Up a Show
— Annette Williams
The Heritage Quilt Show, to be presented June 23 to July 4 by Julian Woman’s Club, is the place to come and appreciate the town’s long heritage of quilt making.
The show has been one of the club’s signature events for 28 years, and will be open at Julian Town Hall, 2129 Main St., from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. Admission is free.
“This year’s opportunity quilt is a rich design from Eleanor Burns’ newest how-to book,” says event chair Jennifer Jones. “It’s a unique take on the Log Cabin pattern.”
A special feature will be the June 22 Eleanor Burns Quilting Show, to be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Town Hall. It’s always an adventure when Burns, who is a world-famous quilter and host of the “Quilt in a Day” TV show, offers her entertaining presentation. This year’s show, “41 Fabulous Years,” will celebrate her longevity in the industry.
Admission is $20. Call 949-556-7441 for reservations and visit www.julianwomansclub.org for information.
The Heritage Quilt Show puts the focus on this traditional American craft and attracts guests from all over the world.
