11 DAYS - FEBRUARY 12-23, 2020

Join us for 11 fun-filled days of winter sunshine in the Caribbean!! 

What's not to love about the beauty of the Caribbean, especially in February when the winter blues may have set in?  Join us as we sail through these crystal clear waters enjoying some of the Caribbean's most inspirational and beautiful islands; St. Maarten, Martinique, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Thomas, Barbados, St. Lucia and Holland America's private island, Half Moon Cay. 

For those of you who are accomplished at sewing bags, or for those who want to but have never taken the leap into bag making, this cruise is for you! Our world class teachers have planned perfect bag projects for every skill level. Not only are we offering classes with bags for every use and reason, we have packed this cruise with hours of bag making fun and quilty inspiration.  This cruise will be a wonderful opportunity to join your quilting friends as well as make new ones who share this passion. 

We will be sailing on one of Holland America's newest ships, the Koningsdam.  All of our classes will be held in beautiful classrooms and open sewing opportunities will be offered daily. 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.  Among our exclusive and optional shore tours, we've arranged a visit to Caribelle Batik Company Factory and Shop as one of the tours you may choose.
