Give Away #3- BFF Time With Eleanor Burns

The third and final prize package for our Get Ready for Road Giveaway is BFF Time with Quilt in a Day Founder, Eleanor Burns. One lucky winner and three of their friends will receive:

A stay at one of Road’s Host Hotels January 24-27

Lunch on Saturday with Eleanor

Front Row Seats at Eleanor’s Saturday night Trunk Show

Eleanor Burns is a quilting legend.

An innovative sewer since she was a young girl, Eleanor self-published her first “Quilt in a Day” book in 1978, igniting a quilting revolution. She introduced an incredibly rapid stitching system, applying the method of assembly line sewing to piecework. Her concise, step-by-step directions were easy to grasp, allowing anyone to be successful at making a quilt. Eleanor Burns is credited for giving quilt makers techniques that compacted months into merely a day, a quilt in a day.

Through her Quilt in a Day enterprise, Eleanor has become a prolific author (she has written over 80 books), a revered teacher trainer, popular television personality, and celebrated industry role model. In 1990, Eleanor pioneered the way people view quilt making with television. Her Quilt in a Day TV series began airing on PBS and is still broadcasting nationwide and abroad, even teaching in Japan. Adding to all of that, she has developed her own “Signature” fabric lines, several special edition sewing machines, and has received numerous awards and recognition for her lifetime of achievements.  

Eleanor will be celebrating her 40th year in quilting at Road to California 2019 by headlining two stage shows, Forty Fabulous Years With Eleanor, on Friday and Saturday night. The shows are a trip down memory lane with Eleanor entertaining guests with her hilarious stories, outtakes, and timeless memorabilia; all while sharing beautiful quilts and teaching priceless techniques.  Tickets for these shows are still available and can be purchased at Road’s Registration desk.

  80. Debra Cole says:

    I first learned how to sew in home ec class in Jr high and high school. The first thing I made was a pair of pants , they didnt look like pants. One leg too long and the other sewed to the wrong side. But I was so excited to sew. My first quilt was made from old fabric that was given to me. In 1975. It was sewn by hand each square 5×5. And then put on a quilting loom and hand sewn until I finished. It fits a queen bed. I still have that quilt. I cherish it. My oldest son loves it, when he would get sick I covered him with it. He use to tell me, it makes me well. I need to do a little repairs now to the backing in 2 small spots. I plan to give it to him so it can make his kids well when they are sick. I may not make prize winning quilts but I love all the different ways you can make one. You never stood learning. I love it, hopefully my granddaughters will someday as well.

  125. Kayley Walcher says:

    I am a young 26 years old and have been quilting for 2 years this February. I was never taught how to sew, I never took a home economics class, and I did not have parents that really sewed anything. I have always admired Quilts. Saw them and thought there was something beautiful about taking fabric, cutting it into pieces, only to stitch it all back together in an orientation that was simply breathtaking. I had a friend who learned to sew and quilt from her mother at a young age, and I was envious that I had no such talent and didn’t think I had a hope to learn. When my husband and I had our son, I was 23 and a new stay at home mom with lots of time on my hand. It was while I was feeding my son that I decided I would teach myself!! While I fed my son, I rent library books on my phone and read. I learned how to piece, baste, pin baste, I learned terms like appliqué and English paper piecing! Most importantly I learned how to quilt. When out anniversary came around, my husband gifted me with a sewing machine and the rest is history! I have found my talent, and passion!! I cannot wait to see what 5, 10, 15 or even 20 years brings to me in this magical community!!!

  126. Cynthia Bruemmer says:

  131. Dezi Waterhouse says:

    I have been quilting on a regular basis since July 2017. My mom taught me how as I was recovering from some health things and I haven’t stopped since. My first quilt was a mile a minute quilt and I had a great time doing it. Mom and did the 40 Fabulous block party this past year as well and it was great.

    I began quilting when I retired and my husband bought me a sewing machine for a retirement gift. That was in 2001. The first book I bought in order to learn was Still Stipping. I was hooked and have been quilting nearly every day since.

    Hello, sweet lady! I’ve been quilting for the last 4 years. My 6 kids are now grown and raising my precious 21 grandchildren. I’ve sewed for over 50 years. I made my kids clothes and mine. I love piecing quilts! My last one was using your pattern, Quick Trip! See picture on your Facebook post. I made it for my great aunt, Lorna. She has devoted her life to others as an RN. She’s now elderly, but will always be one tough beautiful Mississippi Lady.😘

    I’m following in a line of 4 generations of quilters for 47 years. I’ve purchased my granddaughter her first sewing machine , she’s 8, and she has designed 2 quilt blocks at her elementary school. She will be our 6th generation on record!

    I have been quilting almost 20 years! Boy, the time has flown by.
    I first became interested because of PBS Television airing two quilt instruction shows … Eleanor Burns was one show, and Alex Anderson was the other.
    Many years and many quilts later, i find I enjoy it more as the quilts go by.
    Thank you Eleanor.
    Thank you Alex.
