Tonight, enjoy dinner and a private after-hours shopping spree at legendary Rosie’s Calico Cupboard quilt shop.

Discover the historic sights of Old Town, Balboa Park, Downtown and the Coronado on our San Diego city tour. Later, travel through California’s rolling vineyard country, framed by majestic mountains, on our way to Fat Quarters Quilt Shop.  Inside the quaint, Quilt Sampler Featured Shop is more than 4000 thousand  bolts of premium cotton quilting fabric from  Moda, Marcus Fabrics, Andover Fabrics, and Hoffman. Stock up on patterns, kits and notions before our departure back to our hotel for an evening at your leisure. B

Day 4

San Diego – Temecula – Ontario

This morning, we visit Temecula Quilt Co. and Needle in a Fabric Stash to shop their abundance of delightful fabrics and notions. Next, we’ll journey back to the 1800s at the historic frontier village of Old Town Temecula where shops brim with antiques and artwork.  Later, we arrive in the city of Ontario and check into our luxurious hacienda-inspired resort. This evening, attend a “sneak preview” of the quilts at the Road to California Quilter’s Conference & Showcase. B

Day 5

Ontario

Your unlimited admission show pass lets you set your own schedule for visiting the conference any time you like.

Take a break later this afternoon and join your travel companions over libations at our informal Social Hour. B
