Heritage Quilt Show June 29 to July 4 – 10am to 4pm
June 29 - July 4
The Heritage Quilt Show occurs in the main (top) floor of Julian Town Hall, located at the corner of Highway 78/79 and Main Street. The quilt show is open to the public and free of charge. The show is open from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, beginning June 29 and ending on July 4, 2018. Saturday, June 30 is the Eleanor Burns Quilt Show, “Forty Fabulous Years”, and the quilt show will not be open to the public on that day.
Each year the Julian Woman’s Club presents its Heritage Quilt Show to display our town’s heritage of quilt making for the enjoyment of quilters and other visitors to Julian. This has been one of our club’s signature events for 27 years. Many visitors, young and old, female and male, local and from around the world, attend the show each year. A “Country Store” within the show offers quilts and boutique items for sale, all hand-made and donated by women in the club. Profits from the sale of these items go toward local scholarships.
Unlike “juried” quilt shows, our show is an opportunity for local quilters to exhibit their newly made and heirloom quilts. A “viewers’ choice” balloting is held and the winner receives a ribbon and bragging rights for the year. The Heritage Quilt Show continues to be a success for the club and an important event in our community.
The last day of the Heritage Quilt Show coincides with the town’s Independence Day celebration and parade. At 4:00 pm we pick the winning ticket for an “Opportunity Quilt” made by club members and designed by Eleanor Burns. Raffle tickets are available in May at the Wildflower Show and throughout the Quilt Show.
This year’s raffle quilt, entitled “Mexican Star”, was sewn by members of the Julian Woman’s Club, under the direction of Eleanor Burns. The fabrics are a combination of solids and brilliant blue batiks. The backing matches the border. Professionally quilted by Merry Jo Rembold, this quilt is as beautiful on the back as it is on the front. Raffle tickets can be purchased at Julian Tea & Cottage Arts and Kat’s Yarn & Craft Cottage.
