34th Annual Mountain Heirloom Quilt Faire


34th Annual Mountain Heirloom Quilt Faire

The Independence Hall Quilters are holding their annual Quilt Faire at the gorgeous Ironstone Vineyards next weekend, offering visitors a chance to vote for their favorite quilts, attend demonstrations, win door prizes, browse through vendor booths, and shop at the Boutique and Country Store. The popular Boutique will be filled with a wonderful variety of handmade articles, such as quilts, table linens, holiday decorations, wearable art and numerous gift items. The Country Store will have homemade baked goods, each delightfully wrapped on its own dish. The Independence Hall Quilters will also be raffling off their guild-designed and stunningly beautiful “Scholarship Quilt” and various “I.H.Q. Treasures”.

The Independence Hall Quilters believes in giving back to the community and the guild uses proceeds from the annual Quilt Faire to donate throughout the year to The Resource Connection — including the Women’s Crisis Center and Child Protective Services — and area youth with catastrophic illness or accidents, as well as the Shriners Hospital, area schools, parks, libraries and and other community organizations, and scholarships to Bret Harte High School.

For the wine enthusiast, show your Quilt Faire wristband to staff in the Tasting Room and you will receive complimentary wine tasting AND 10% off wine purchases.

Make a weekend of it! With the leaves turning, the scent of apple and cinnamon wafting from the Red Apple Bakery and Fruit Stand and the incredible seasonal dishes made from Calaveras produce at the area’s unique restaurants, autumn is an incredible time to visit Murphys. For more information on lodging, restaurants and all that Murphys offers in the season of reds and oranges, of pumpkin recipes and apple cider, of Halloween and Thanksgiving, sweaters and scarves, peruse our autumnal musings here: “Autumn is a Season Murphys Wears Well“.

Admission is $7 at the door.
