Quilters Adventure Tour

Please board the tour bus promptly at 8:00 AM, in 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 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 Pacifica where we will visit the studio of renowned textile artist Kimberlie Moutoux whose work lies at the intersection of art and nature. Her background is in sculpture, however, her recent focus has pivoted to creating in the realm of textiles, using natural dyes in her work. Kimberlie’s work over the last 10 years moves in two directions, with the first involving studies of environmental issues regarding water and the second focus driven by her study of birds.

After the morning studio visit, we’ll travel to Half Moon Bay for shopping time and lunch (on your own) in one of the town’s many fine restaurants.

Following lunch, we’ll hop on the bus and head to Burlingame for our second studio tour with Jaya Griscom who is a textile artist, quilter, weaver, clothing designer, and printmaker. As a Silicon Valley native, she delights in melding her traditional craft background with modern technology, utilizing 3D scanners and digital looms to embed scientific data into her artwork. Deeply inspired by the unique tactile relationship between fibers and the human body, Jaya’s recent work combines prints, repurposed clothes, and 3D contours into large-scale textile artwork.

You'll return to Pacific International Quilt Festival with your textile creative juices bubbling and your hands ready to get quilting! The Quilters Adventure Tour, led by professional guide Barbara Lockwood, includes transportation on a deluxe tour bus and Museum admission. Meals are not included.
