About 10 years ago, I started doing weekend retreats down on Long Beach Island. We enjoyed ourselves immensely and did it once a year. Then the owners of the house we rented decided to retire and live in the house permanently. No more retreats there. I never found a place I liked as much that was close so we haven't done any retreats in awhile.
I thought about doing a quilting retreat on a cruise but never looked very far into it - until about a month ago. Now I'm thrilled to announce our sailing date of April 21, 2012 to BERMUDA!
We're calling it the Pink Sands Tour and we'll travel on the "Explorer of the Seas" from the Royal Caribbean line. Five nights, two days of sewing, two days in Bermuda - what more could we ask for???? I don't know about all of you, but I'm ready for a cruise to Bermuda THIS April but unfortunately that isn't in the cards, so I'll be waiting & dreaming of next April!
Prices for the cruise have been worked out, I'm working on the details of what we'll sew and machines. I'm planning on a first day project of some kind of a tote so we can use it while shopping in Bermuda! And or the second day learning machine applique, bobbin work, couching and some other machine techniques while making a Pink Sands Memory Wall Hanging. I'm chatting with machine companies about the possibilities of machines. Stay tuned! Whatever we sew, it will be FUN!
Why don't you join us? We'll sail from Port Liberty in NJ on April 21st and return April 26th. You can find all the details by clicking on this link "QP Pink Sands Quilt Cruise". We hope you can come!
Till next time,
