The 3rd Australian Quilting Cruise was a great experience. Thirty four wonderful ladies from as far away as New Zealand, Western Australia and in between attended this retreat. Laraine Callinan and Christine Dowell helped to make this a very successful Quilting Cruise on the Royal Caribbean ‘Voyager of the Seas’ on a 10 night retreat at sea.
A pre cruise challenge titled 'Tropical Colours' had 17 entries. A viewers choice award of a Bernette sewing machine donated by Bernina Australia was won by Lydia McGreagor from Queensland. The winner was announced at a Cocktail Party held near the end of the cruise.
A ‘Quilting Retreat at Sea’ is a wonderful way to combine the love of patch working with a great holiday where the ships staff pamper you like royalty and the food is varied and wonderful.
