Dear Quilters and Friends,
One of our favorite destinations is Alaska, and we're looking forward to returning again in June of 2013. Join us for this special seven day sailing roundtrip from Seattle. We'll cruise on Holland America Line's wonderful Vista Class ship, the ms Westerdam. 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 renown instructors in the world of quilting:
Laura Wasilowski, Christine Porter, Melinda Bula and Kimberly Einmo!
- Four award-winning quilting instructors
- Numerous class choices
- A fabulous Holland America cruise
- Bernina Sewing Machines to use
- Seams Like Home Quilt Shoppe on board
- Autograph party with the instructors
- "Welcome Aboard" party
- Show & Tell at the "farewell" party
- Challenge Block Contest
- Shopping at quilt shops in every port
- Souvenir Tote Bag
- Daily open sewing and evening "Sewcials"
There's something wonderful awaiting you in every port of call! You can play tourist, choosing your pleasure whether it be walking, touring, flight-seeing or shopping! All the towns we visit are right on the water, and there is a lot to see within walking distance, including quilt shops in every port! Onboard ship you will have the opportunity to perfect your quilting skills with many class choices from our fabulous teachers, as well as myriad opportunities for "SEWCIALIZING" with other people who all share your love of quilting!
We will be bringing new Bernina sewing machines for your use. You can even go home with a wonderful buy on a new Bernina! Seams Like Home Quilt Shoppe in Anchorage is making this possible for us. They will also be operating our quilt shop on board the ms Westerdam for your shopping convenience during the quilt seminar at sea.
For all of you that have sailed with us before, welcome back! For those of you that are new to the fabulous experience of quilting at sea, we look forward to getting to know you and to sharing our Alaska Quilt Seminar at Sea 2013 with you. Bring a friend, your spouse or your family – non-quilters are welcome to join us and they get a special discounted rate! 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!
Laura Wasilowski, Christine Porter, Melinda Bula and Kimberly Einmo
