Dear Quilters and Friends,

Paula Nadelstern, Mary Sorensen, Gyleen X. Fitzgerald and Sue Nickels!
- Four award-winning quilting instructors
- Numerous class choices
- Janome top of the line quilting and sewing machines
- Sunshine Sewing and Quilting on board Quilt Shop
- Fabulous Holland America cruise
- Autograph party with the instructors
- Souvenir tote bag
- Welcome Aboard party
- Show & tell at the farewell party
- Challenge block contest
- "Sewcial" events onboard
- Souvenir tote bag
We will visit some of the Eastern Caribbean's most beautiful ports; St. Maarten, St. Lucia, Barbados, Martinique, Dominica, St. Thomas and Holland America's award winning private island, Half Moon Cay! What a great way to beat the winter blues and take a break from everyday life while enjoying 5-star service and the company of fellow quilters!
From turtles to stingrays, submarines to snorkeling, there's something wonderful awaiting you in every port of call! 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 Janome quilting and sewing machines for your use. You can even go home with a wonderful buy on a new Janome! Sunshine Sewing and Quilting from Margate, Florida is making this possible for us. They will also be operating our quilt shop on board the ms Noordam for your shopping convenience during the quilt seminar at sea.
Sunshine Sewing and Quilting is just 20 minutes from the Fort Lauderdale cruise terminal so if you arrive in town early or stay after the cruise, make sure you stop by their fabulous shop!
This trip will sell out fast, so book early! We have had a list of quilters interested in booking this trip even before it was organized. Bring a friend, your spouse or your family - non-quilters are always welcome to join us! They have many activities to pursue while you are in class!
We can't wait to see you on board the ms Noordam!
Paula Nadelstern, Mary Sorensen, Gyleen X. Fitzgerald and Sue Nickels
