Alaskan Quilting Cruise 2015

A wonderful way to see Alaska is on a cruise ship.  Combine this with indulging in your passion for patchwork and you have a Retreat at Sea.  Come North to Alaska with Chris Dowell, Dorothy Clee and Crafting Cruises for this trip of a life time.

We will be sailing on the beautiful Radiance of the Seas for this amazing experience with a round trip from Vancouver.  Leaving on the 4th September and returning on the 11th September 2015.

There are three workshops which will be held during sea days.  A jelly roll quilt ,  ‘Country Colours’, with Dorothy and an appliqué project, ‘Furry Friends’, with Chris.  Chris has designed her projects especially for the cruise.  Both these workshops have an Australian and an Alaskan theme. And of course we have a ‘Mystery’ workshop. Sewing machines are provided and kits are available.
Visit quilt shops at Juneau and Ketchikan within walking distance to the ship. Cruise the amazing Tracy Arm Fjord. Lorelle from Crafting Cruises is putting together some suggestions for pre and post tours of the Canadian Rocky Mountains.

I have also arranged a pre and post cruise two week Rocky Mountain Quilting Tour with Debbie Rod.  This visits Canada’s largest quilt shop, meet with Canmore Mountain Cabin Quilters, enjoy an all day appliqué workshop with a local quilter and of course sight seeing in the Rocky Mountains.  Visit Banff, Lake Louise, and the Icefields Parkway and Jasper.

This tour is very personalised and the groups are small.  The pre cruise tour is booked out but the post cruise tour has vacancies.

This is a wonderful way to combine a love of quilting with a trip of a life time visiting beautiful countryside and seeing wonderful sights.  Bring an extra suitcase for all the lovely fabrics that will tempt us to buy.
