Road to California is a great place for couples to experience a quilting adventure.
Linda and Steve from San Bernardino, California were the first people in line waiting to get in to Road 2018 for their quilting adventure. It was their second time at the quilt show. Linda does machine embroidery and Steve sews, doing a lot of sewing for special needs children. Linda said what she likes best about Road are the demonstrations by vendors. Steve looks forward to seeing new things that they haven’t seen before. Besides being a sewist, Steve also just happens to be San Bernardino’s official Santa Claus!! He covers the entire city in 3 nights. He had just cut off his “Santa hair” right before Road.
Donna and Mark came for their second Road quilting adventure from Tempe, Arizona. Donna considers herself “a simple quilter” who has been quilting for 7 years. Mark, on the other hand, is a “computer genius,” setting up embroidery for quilts. Whenever they travel, Mark finds different quilt shows for them to attend. This way, they get to different quilts from different angles. At Road, they both enjoy seeing the variety of vendors, especially those they have made friends with. At one show, Donna was having a hard time using Cuddle fabric. She went to the Shannon booth and made friends with Julie who gave her some great tips on how to sew with Cuddle.
Pat and Bud are also from Arizona–Tucson, Arizona to be exact. Bud is new to quilting and Pat has been quilting for 12 years. Bud’s interest in quilting began when they went to Houston. He got all excited seeing all the quilts and wanted to start right away creating art style quilts. They have also experienced a quilting adventure on a quilt cruise. Road 2018 was their first time at the quilt show. They came to support their daughter who had an entry in the fantasy category as well as find new quilt ideas and inspiration.
Cindy and Johnny’s Road 2018 quilting adventure included attending Jenny Doan’s trunk show. They split their time between two homes; 6 months they live in Big Bear, California and the other 6 months they live in Homer, Alaska. Cindy has been quilting since 1974 and Johnny since 2015. Johnny has entered a “men’s” quilt in the Kenai State Fair and won 3rd place. Cindy has attended Road’s quilting adventure 6 times. She comes to see the “Amazing vendors.” Road 2018 was Johnny’s first time at Road. He really enjoyed looking at all the quilts on display. They included seeing Jenny Doan on their quilting adventure because they love her YouTube videos.
