"The Highlands" Presents:
Lake County Quilt Trail 5/21/16This lecture is on The Lake County Quilt Trail the first of it's kind in California continuing a tradition that has spread across America. In 2009, Marilyn Holdenried, founder of the Kelseyville Pear Festival, was inspired to create Lake County's Quilt Trail "while attending the International Storytelling Festival in Jonesborough, TN, I was introduced to the Quilt Trail project concept," she said. I was totally hooked! We needed this project in Lake County."
The quilt trail project concept is "to place painted quilt squares on highly visible barns and buildings throughout Lake County. It is an agricultural and tourism project designed to promote and celebrate our community pride."
Marilyn decided that her local community needed sprucing up and so the Lake County Quilt Trail was born. The volunteers have completed their goal of 100 squares placed all around the county which had made it into a book about quilt square trails across America.
You can learn more about the Lake County Quilt Trail on their website and a map of the location of the quilt blocks at www.lakecountyquilttrail.com
To learn more about Lake County and it's unique treasures please consider attending future lectures of the Know Lake County series every 3rd Saturday at 2:00 pm at the Lakeport Library February through November.
Each lecture is on a topic of an unique story of Lake County.
