Named “One of the Top Ten Quilt Shops for 2005” by Better Homes and Gar- den’s Quilt Sampler Maga- zine, The Treasure Hunt


could just as easily be known as “the treasure find,” since prized items abound. Unique gift items include vintage beach signs, artisan jewelry,


Carpinteria and Santa Barbara memorabilia.


A roster of innovative classes in knitting, quilting, sewing, needlework and craft mak- ing are offered year round in their beautiful downtown classroom. Santa’s elves have nothing on the ladies working magic in this busy idea factory. The Treasure Hunt is a real find when you’re in the market for creative inspiration. 
