I'm really excited to be on the teaching faculty for a 10 day Quilt n' Cruise to Alaska next summer. We'll depart from San Francisco on 10th August, 2015 on-board the Princess Cruises Golden Princess and return on 20th August. There will be four days of quilting classes while we are at sea (two each way), and six days of cruising the beautiful Alaskan coast including Glacier Bay National Park, with stops at Juneau, Skagway, Ketchikan, and Victoria BC. I'd love you to join us, and your non-quilting friends are welcome too! Click here for further details. Contact me if you would like me to forward the bios for the other teachers. There is a special on right now - if you sign up before the end of September, the deposit is only $100 instead of the usual 20%.
