Mini Shop Hop Featuring Quilt in a Day! – June 18, 2022 - Open for registration now.

One of our tour itineraries for the Road to CA bus tours has been very popular and we thought it was time to offer it through the Traveling Quilters.  Yes, we’re going to visit Eleanor Burns at Quilt in a Day!   You’ll have time to shop at Quilt in a Day, visit with Eleanor during lunch (included in the trip cost), and enjoy her highly entertaining “show”.  You’ll enjoy learning about Eleanor, how it all began, and seeing many, many of her quilts.   In addition, we will also visit Piecemakers in Costa Mesa, and Sew Treasured (formerly Primitive Gatherings) in Murrietta. We will have two departure points:  Redondo Beach and Fullerton.  Be sure to check which departure point you need on the booking form. 

Cost:  $84 per person (includes lunch and Eleanor’s Show at QIAD)
