American Heartland Quilt Exploration
Each Quilt Explorations cruise revolves around a specific quilting experience presented exclusively by one quilting expert. Intimate and upscale, these unique cruises help you explore quilting in ways you never imagined.

Dear quilters and friends,

2017 brings a unique opportunity to experience the American Heartland! This exclusive Quilt Exploration cruise will sail on the American Queen steamboat and be led by author, teacher, lecturer, and TV personality Cindy Walter!

Something For Everyone

Hearken back to the days of Mark Twain as you sail an iconic paddlewheeler down the Mississippi River! Work on a hand project with Cindy and your fellow quilters, tour the engine room to explore the inner workings of the classic steam powered vessel, read a good book or just kick back and enjoy! Life on the river flows at a slower pace! There is something for everyone as you enjoy the fall foliage and the quaint riverside towns of America's heartland.

Be Inspired

A very special treat will be a visit to the world famous National Quilt Museum, a shop hop and a visit to Paper Pieces in Paducah Kentucky! With inspiration at an all-time high, we'll have a quilting project or two to work on and lots of "sewcial" time with a group of happy people who share your passion for all things quilting!

With projects, lectures, shopping time and surprises along the way, this will be an unforgettable trip of a lifetime!

Best wishes and see you soon,
Cindy Walter
