Dear Quilters and Friends,
One of our favorite destinations is Alaska, and we're looking forward to returning again
in June of 2012. This year we will have the special opportunity to add a 4 day land package
to the beginning of the trip for a truly in depth Alaskan experience! You will travel via the Alaska Railroad from Fairbanks to see the majesty of Denali National Park and Mt. McKinley, America's tallest peak! Truly an awe inspiring sight! We'll cruise on Holland America Line's wonderful ship, the ms Statendam. You'll be part of a warm group of fun-loving people
sharing a common interest in quilting, and have an opportunity to make new friends,
one quilter at a time!
Our classes are held during "at sea" days and we make every attempt to schedule classes
outside of port time. There are a wide variety of classes from which to choose, taught by
four of the most renowned instructors in the world of quilting:
Sue Nickels, Karen Combs, Kathy McNeil and Stevii Graves!

While in port, you can play tourist, choosing your pleasure, whether it be walking, touring, flight-seeing or shopping! All the ports are right on the water, and there is a lot to see within walking distance! Or you can just relax on the ship, our floating hotel.
"Seams Like Home" Quilt Shoppe from Anchorage, Alaska will be bringing new Bernina sewing machines for you to use, and providing our onboard quilt shop for your shopping pleasure! You can even go home with a wonderful buy on a new Bernina.
For all of you that have sailed with us before, we welcome you back, and for those of you that are joining us for the first time, we look forward to getting to know you and to sharing Alaska Cruisetour Quilt Seminar at Sea 2012 with you. Bring a friend, your spouse or your family – non-quilters will get a special discounted rate and are always welcome to join us! We will make them feel especially welcome and there's plenty for them to do while you are quilting!
We are really looking forward to returning to Alaska for another Quilt Seminar at Sea, and we hope you can join us!
