May 16, 2018 (Julian) – For 27 years, the Julian Woman’s Club Heritage Quilt has showcased the talents of local quilters. This year’s show will feature newly made and heirloom quilts on display. The show runs from June 29th to July 4th in the Julian Town Hall upstairs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  

Those who attend will get an opportunity to vote on their favorite quilt “viewers’ choice” ballot. It is harder than you think to pick just one, once you start walking around and looking at all the amazing work. That is why we there’s a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place, too.  Admission is free, but the Country Store will have local handmade items and quilts for sale.

The opportunity quilt this year is a beautiful, queen size Quilt in a Day “Mexican Star” pattern.  It is made from Batik fabrics in stunning shades of blue.  A committee of Women's Club members under the guidance of Eleanor Burns collaborated over several months to create this masterpiece at her Julian studio.  

Tickets for the opportunity quilt are $2 each or $5 for 3.  One lucky winner will be drawn on July 4th and you do not have to be present to win. Proceeds go to The Julian Woman’s club to support local scholarships and charities. 

Eleanor Burns will be having her last benefit performance highlighting her new book, Forty Fabulous Years. She will show quilts and tell stories from her 40 years of running Quilt in a Day. There will be some special silent auction items and give always during the show.  Her show is on Saturday, June 30th, starting at 11:00am to about 1pm. Tickets are $20 in advance until June 15th and then $25 up until show time June 30th. It is expected to sell out, so reserve your seat as soon as possible.

Call (619) 246-8585 or stop by Kat's Yarn & Crafts at 2000 Main St. to purchase raffle tickets and make your reservation to see Eleanor Burns.
