Later shop for luscious Hoffman Fabrics and more at Eleanor Burns’ Quilt in a Day studio, where her PBS television series is filmed. Tonight enjoy dinner and a private after-hours shopping spree at legendary Rosie’s Calico Cupboard Quilt Shop. Browse through rooms filled with Orientals, batiks, flannels, 19th-and early-20th-century reproductions — 18,000 bolts of first quality fabric, plus thousands of notions, all at private discount prices!

San Diego City Tour
A morning visit to Visions Art Museum immerses us in the world of contemporary quilts and textiles. Discover the historic sights of Old Town, Balboa Park, Downtown, Coronado and La Jolla on our afternoon San Diego city tour. You’ll travel through California’s rolling vineyard-country, framed by majestic mountains on our way to Fat Quarter’s Quilt Shop. Here thousands of bolts of premium cotton quilting fabric include rooms of 1930s reproductions. Next we’ll journey back to the 1800s at the historic frontier village of Old Town Temucla where shops are filled with antiques and artwork. B
Temecula & Quilt Show Preview
This morning we visit Temecula’s favorite quilt shop, filled with delightful fabrics and notions. 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 2018 Road to California Quilters Conference & Showcase. B
Road to California Quilt Show
Your Unlimited Admission Show Pass lets you set your own schedule for visiting the conference any time you like. It’s California’s largest and glitzy-est show, with hundreds of spectacular quilts just steps from our hotel, so you can take a break and enjoy the palm-lined patio pool. B
Road to California Quilt Show
Enjoy a leisurely morning, take a class (reserve ahead), or use your pass to spend as much time as you like at the show. Tonight we’ll say good-bye to new friends at the Farewell Dinner. B,D
Personalize your day, relaxing at the pool or returning to the show to shop at the merchant’s mall (far easier now that crowds have dwindled), before taking the hotel’s shuttle to the airport. B
