9200C – Exploring the Inland Empire - Mission Inn and Shop Hop Tour

$124.00

Road Staff

Location:

One day

Tuesday, January 17th 2023

From 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM

 

We’ll tour the historical Mission Inn in Riverside. Note that this is a 75-minute walking tour of the Inn. You’ll have an opportunity to learn about the history behind this California icon. We will also visit two of our favorite quilt shops in that area – Quilters Cocoon (Riverside) and Cotton Gin (Redlands). We’ll have a scatter lunch (not included in trip price) while at the Mission Inn. You can dine there or at one of many eating locations adjacent to the Inn.

The Mission Inn & Spa began as a quaint adobe boarding house in 1876, becoming a full-service hotel in the early 1900s. Opened by Frank Miller, it expanded in 1903 with over 200 guestrooms and the addition of the Mission Wing, built in Mission-Revival style while incorporating architectural features from more than 20 different California missions. Three more wings materialized as demand grew, including the Cloister, Spanish Wing and the Rotunda Wing, completed in 1931. Miller filled the hotel with valuable items from across the glove, including artwork, furniture and religious relics. Mission Inn still houses the oldest bell in Christendom, dating back to 1247. (https://www.missioninn.com)

The Quilters Cocoon has the largest selection of Kaffe Fassett fabrics in Southern California. They are also a “one-stop shop” for tuffets, square and round. They have a wonderful variety of fabrics (yardage and pre-cuts) to choose from as well. (https://www.quilterscocoon.com)

Cotton Gin Fabric in Redlands, is located in the heart of beautiful downtown Redlands, CA. It is the go-to shop for your fabric addiction! The store sells high quality 100% cotton fabric from beloved manufacturers such as Hoffman, Benartex, Robert Kaufman, Moda, Alexander Henry, Art Gallery, and more!
