Kim, Amy and I have been working on this cruise and we are very excited to share it with you. We have some wonderful experiences planned for you. . . . and be sure to bring an empty suitcase! When you return home, it will be filled with amazing batiks.

Batiks of Bali Quilt Exploration Cruise
Dear quilters and friends,
2018 brings a unique opportunity to experience the fabric haven of Indonesia! This exclusive cruise and tour will sail on Holland America’s ms Volendam and be led by instructor, author and fabric maker, Karen Combs.
Discover the rich traditions of Bali
This 14-day cruise of a lifetime begins and ends in Singapore. Visit the Indonesian ports of Jakarta, Semarang, Surabaya, Probolinggo, Lombok, Komodo Island and overnight on board ship in magical Bali. Tour along the way in ports that will show you a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the Indonesian fabric industry.
We will visit the biggest textile market in South East Asia, Tanah Abang Market, on Jakarta. While on Java, we will not only visit traditional markets, but observe the process of making batiks. Once you’ve observed, step in and learn from a batik expert as they guide you through designing and creating your own hand-made batik to bring home! While in Bali and visit the center of Balinese hand-woven fabric.
Round out the cruise with a tour to Komodo Island where you can visit the amazing Komodo Dragons in their natural habitat.
