Looking for a wonderful trip in 2012 that combines quilting and travel? How about Alaska June 6-17, 2012?

I have just received details about this trip and I can’t wait to share them with you!!!

Join me as I travel to Alaska! I’ll be joined by Sue Nickels, Kathy McNeil and John Flynn.  We will start our trip in Fairbanks, travel via the Alaska Railroad to Denali National Park and then to Seward on one of Alaska’s most scenic highways.



In Seward, we will board Holland America’s ms Statendam for 7 days of quilting and cruising fun!

We will visit Glacier Bay National Park, Skagway, Juneau, Ketchikan, and travel the Inside Passage to Vancouver, British Columbia.  There are quilt shops in every port and an exclusive quilter’s shore excursion in Juneau!

I’ve been creating in EQ8 and LOVE this feature. . . you can see more than one quilt or block at a time in the Sketchbook.  In fact, I can determine how many I can see.  Love this! #EQ8 EQ8 is coming soon!  So excited, so many new features!
