Quilters Adventure Tour

Friday, October 15
8:00AM - 4:30PM (approximately)

Visit Quilt Studios, the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles, plus Lunch & Shopping in San Francisco

Please board the tour bus promptly at 8:00 AM, front of Hall A, Santa Clara Convention Center. Join us for a spectacular day featuring amazing quilts and two studio tours! We’ll begin at the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles with the Museum’s Director Nancy Bavor and Exhibits Curator Ashley Elieff, leading you on a private tour of the Museum’s exhibitions. In addition, visitors will get a behind-the-scenes tour of the Museum’s Collection area and a chance to view some of the newest acquisitions.

Next, board the tour bus for San Francisco where we will visit the studio of renowned quilter Sonya Lee Barrington. Sonya Lee Barrington, a native of San Francisco, began sewing with her grandmother on a treadle machine when she was young. A sought-after quilt teacher and lecturer, her teaching has brought her to Australia and New Zealand as well as all parts of the United States.

After the morning studio visit, we’ll travel to San Francisco Bay’s beautiful Pier 39 for shopping time and lunch (on your own) in one of the Pier’s many fine restaurants.

Our second studio tour will be with Margaret Fabrizio. At age 91 Margaret Fabrizio turned the bottom story of her Victorian home in SF into a studio. In addition to being a world-renowned harpsichordist, author, and painter she began her quilting career at age 58. “I learned how to enhance a traditional design and eventually left the formal patterns for less confined quilts such as Kathakali, Superquilt, and Bali.” Every 7th quilt she makes is constructed with leftovers from the previous 6.

You’ll return to Pacific International Quilt Festival with new ideas and inspiration for future projects! The Quilters Adventure Tour, led by professional guide Barbara Lockwood, includes transportation on a deluxe tour bus and Museum admission. Meals are not included.
