Dear quilters and friends,
2020 brings us back to the fabulous Caribbean with a beloved itinerary! We'll sail on one of Holland America Line's newest ships, the beautiful ms Koningsdam, roundtrip out of Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
You'll be part of a warm group of fun-loving people who share a common interest in quilting. You'll have the pleasure of making new friends, one quilter at a time! "Sewcial" activities include a "Welcome Aboard" party, a Challenge Block contest and a Show & Tell at the "farewell" party. You will also have the opportunity to perfect your quilting skills. There are a wide variety of classes from which to choose, taught by three of the most renown instructors in the world of quilting: Kimberly Einmo, Cindy Walter and Jeanette Walton. Sewing machines will be available for your use on board. You will even have the chance to purchase a new machine at a great price!
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 creating lasting memories.
We will visit some of the Caribbean's most beautiful ports; St. Maarten, Martinique, Barbados, St. Lucia, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Thomas and Holland America's award-winning private island, Half Moon Cay! What a great way to usher in Spring and take a break from everyday life, while enjoying 5-star service and the company of fellow quilters!
We will also have the opportunity to visit Carabelle Batiks in St. Lucia and experience entire streets lined with fabric shops in Martinique. The beautiful colors of the islands surrounding you will be a great inspiration for your next quilt. This is truly the perfect Caribbean itinerary for quilters!
Consider bringing a friend, your spouse or your family – non-quilters are always welcome to join us and will have many activities to pursue while you are in class. We hope you can join us!
