We are 15 months away from another cruising adventure. On September 22, 2013 Susan Purney Mark and I will be heading up a quilting cruise to see how many red maple leaves we can find between Quebec City and New York!! This will be my fifth quilting cruise – 4th one with Holland America.
The stops are filled with wonderful things to do – history, craft, nature, culture. And in between, we’ll be quilting aboard the ship.
In Charlottetown, you can hang out with Anne Shirley at Green Gables. In Sydney NS, find out about coal mining, 1800s Louisbourg, Alexander Graham Bell, or have tea with Rita MacNeil. Halifax offers visits to Peggy’s Cove and Lunenburg – but we also have a very special optional off-boat class and presentation with two famous quilters.
Then it’s off to the charming Bar Harbor Maine, Boston and Newport Rhode Island. We finish in The Big Smoke – and will be offering a post-cruise tour of New York (including stops in the garment district for fabric, etc).
Details are still being confirmed. I have started another blog where all the up-to-date information will be available. If you sign up for email notifications, you’ll know as soon as possible what’s going on. http://fallcoloursquiltcruise.wordpress.com
I have already posted the exact itinerary, with a few ideas of what you can do in each port.
I hope you can join us on this wonderful trip!
