Come with Me to Alaska!

Imagine watching whales breach and eagles soar. Imagine being among the lucky few to spend a whole day in Glacier Bay National Park. Imagine traveling through Alaska's sublime beauty and frontier ports in unsurpassed luxury and comfort. On Holland America Line's spectacular 7-day Alaska cruise vacations - imagination meets reality. Our ship, the Zuiderdam, is a Vista-class ship with under 2000 passengers. I know you will enjoy the award-winning service that is a hallmark of Holland America!

And imagine enjoying all this excitement PLUS taking quilting classes and meeting fellow quilters from around the world! Your instructors are enthusiastic presenters and knowledgeable experts. Daphne Greig and "me" are business partners and co-authors of several books. They have travelled all over North America to present lectures and workshops at shops, for guilds and for major quilting conferences. Cathy Miller is known as the Singing Quilter and her talents have taken her, literally, around the world.

Her enthusiasm for quilting and quilters is a delight! She will be doing some musical presentations and teaching classes on our cruise. Brenda Stengel is the owner of Satin Moon Quilt Shop and she has been teaching, mentoring and enriching creative students for over 35 years.

Our coordinator, Sharon Sher, has many years' experience organizing group cruises and she takes care of all the details. Pricing for this sailing is extremely competitive and there are staterooms to suit every budget. This really is the perfect vacation!

If you have a non-quilting companion they will find many shipboard activities to enjoy while you are in class. We have had many friends, spouses and family join our Quilting Cruises since quilters are just so much fun to be around!
