June 30 - July 7, 2019

Alaska has always been a favorite destination among quilters and this is a wonderful opportunity to learn new and creative quilting skills while making new friends in our fun-loving group.   We've planned our cruise during the best and most breathtaking part of the summer when days are long and the sun is bright, the salmon are running, the whales are breeching and wildlife is out in abundance. Thus, cruising through the inside passage with us offers you amazing classes, incredible inspiration and scenery, wildlife viewing as well as exclusive onboard and in port activities.   

Enjoy everything this cruise has to offer with the amazing Amy Butler, Sujata Shah and Gillian Travis.  These incredible teachers and well traveled women will be offering workshops inspired by their journeys to the most exotic parts of the world.  The best part is that you do not have to choose a class as you may take each class offered and glean special secrets and techniques from the some of the most creative icons in the quilt world.

Join us as we sail on Holland America's wonderful VISTA CLASS ship, the Oosterdam. Non-quilters are more than welcome to join us, so consider bringing a companion or even your entire family as onboard or in port, there will be something for every interest. There are many sightseeing options available and all of the piers are located right in or close to town.  With several Alaskan quilt shops within walking distance of the ship, it couldn't be any easier for you to take home some Alaskan fabric treasures!  We have also arranged special optional custom shore tours just for our group which will combine some of the incredible area sightseeing along with quilt shop visits; there will be something for everyone to enjoy.

Why choose our Alaskan quilt cruise?  Check out our Alaska cruise video here...it speaks for itself.
