Dear Quilters and Friends,
One of our favorite destinations is Alaska, and we’re looking forward to returning again in August of 2023 to Hubbard Glacier! Join us for this special seven day sailing roundtrip from Seattle. We’ll cruise on Holland America Line’s wonderful Vista Class ship, the Westerdam. You’ll be part of a warm group of fun-loving people sharing a common interest in quilting, and have an opportunity to make new friends, one quilter at a time!
Our classes are held during “at sea” _days and we make every attempt to schedule classes outside of port time. There are a wide variety of classes from which to choose, taught by two renown instructors in the world of quilting: Gyleen X. Fitzgerald & Chardel Blaine!
Quilting and “sewcializing”
We will be bringing new sewing machines for your use. You can even go home with a wonderful buy on a new Machine!
Ports of call
- Juneau – In Alaska’s capital, taste salmon baked over an alderwood fire, pan for gold, flight-see the Juneau Ice Field, and visit the Mendenhall glacier.
- Sitka – Step back to the days of Russian Alaska as you watch lively performances of the New Arch-angel Dancers and view holy paintings of the Czarists’ _days. Plenty of wildlife adventures await!
- Ketchikan – Immerse yourself in Tlingit Indian culture as you view the world’s largest collection of totem poles or kayak the colorful waterfront. Visit Creek Street, see Alaska as the early pioneers did.
Be our guest
We are really looking forward to returning to Alaska for another Quilt Seminar at Sea, and we hope you can join us!
Chardel Blaine and Gyleen Fitzgerald
