Time: 12:00 pm

Julie Mason has been a quilter for a number of years and enjoys traveling around the country with her husband in their 5th wheel trailer. Having searched out quilt barn trails in Kentucky, Tennessee, and Indiana, and having seen evidence of them in many other states, both wondered on the way from their last trip in 2012 why there could not be a trail in Washington County. She asked members of the Westside Quilters Guild, where she served as president, if they thought it would be an idea they could support. The journey to this point has held past county sign regulations, a discussion with Tillamook County involved persons, a national survey of quilt barn trails, meeting new people in arts and tourism groups and obtaining help and much enthusiasm for such a trail for the county. 12:00-1:00pm

* Quilt LectureQuilt Lecture

Time: 12:00 pm

Watch an episode of the PBS documentary “Why Quilts Matter” and discuss the history of quilt scholarship in America. It is more relevant, and far more interesting, than some might think. The quilt is so beloved, so central to the myths of American life, that many scholars failed to debunk the legends and folklore it had created. Today the field of quilts is a serious discipline generating material of interest, not just to the quilt world, but to a dozen other important disciplines from material culture to sociology. The quilt is central to them all. 12:00-1:00pm
