Dear Quilters and Friends,
2013 brings us back to the fabulous Caribbean with an all new itinerary! We'll sail on Holland America Line's beautiful ms Nieuw Amsterdam, round trip out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida!
Whenever possible, our classes are held at times that do not interfere with port visits. As usual, we bring you a wide variety of classes from which to choose, taught by four award-winning, renowned instructors in the world of quilting:
Karen Combs, Kimberly Einmo, Kathy McNeil and Mary Sorensen!
- Four award-winning quilting
- Numerous class choices
Bernina Sewing Machines
- Quilt Shop on Board
- Fabulous Holland America cruise
- Autograph party with the instructors
- Welcome Aboard party
- Show & Tell at the Farewell party
- Challenge Block Contest
- "Sewcial" events onboard
- Souvenir Tote Bag
We will visit some of the Western Caribbean's most beautiful ports; Grand Cayman,
Mahogany Bay, Costa Maya and Holland America's award winning private island, Half Moon Cay! What a great way to beat the winter blues and take a short 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 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, Alaska is making this possible for us. They will also be operating our quilt shop on board the
ms Nieuw Amsterdam for your shopping convenience during the quilt seminar at sea.
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 Nieuw Amsterdam!
Karen Combs, Kimberly Einmo,
Kathy McNeil and Mary Sorensen
