We will have an opportunity to learn more about designing and printing this beautiful fabric while we tour the facility.Next, we’ll head south to San Juan Capistrano for a self-guided tour of the Mission.
Mission San Juan Capistrano, historic landmark and museum, is the Birthplace of Orange County.
It was founded more than two hundred years ago as the 7th of 21 missions statewide and features a chapel still standing where Saint Serra once celebrated Mass.
In the 1980’s the company began to market fabric for the growing quilting community.
Today they operate two separate design studios, each one generating fabrics specific to the quilting and manufacturing customer.
Today, it is a monument to California’s multi-cultural history, embracing its Native American, Spanish, Mexican and European heritage.
Originally built as a self-sufficient community by Spanish Padres and Native Americans, the Mission was a center for agriculture, industry, education and religion.

Please note that because we will be touring around the warehouse at Robert Kaufman, they ask everyone to wear close-toed shoes for safety.
