Announcing - Aloha Quilt Cruise 2015

It's no secret - YOU ARE INVITED...


 The Aloha Quilt Cruise 2015

I am so excited to let you all know that I’ve been invited to host my very first Quilt Cruise! When the Flight Centre in Vancouver called me up and asked if I would be the feature guest for a quilt cruise I was so honoured. They asked where I might like to go and I almost fell off my chair as I uttered “somewhere hot please!” I’ll be talking about this for the next 9 months leading up to the big event but here’s the quick scoop for today. 

  • We have booked space on board the Star Princess Cruise Ship for the 2015 Aloha Quilt Cruise. 
  • It will be a 15 day cruise to and from Vancouver starting on Sept. 19th 2015. 
  • 5 days at sea, 4 days at Hawaiian ports of call and 5 days at sea back home. 
  • 8 full days of workshops available plus contests, prizes and more...
During that very first phone call I immediately asked if I could invite another talented quilt teacher with a musical twist. So Cathy Miller the Singing Quilter is my special guest. 

This will be an event you don't want to miss! If you want to secure your spot now, or book this for someone special this Christmas you can contact the Flight Centre by calling Miriam at 1-866-420-4410, or email Miriam Cloutier and ask about the Aloha Quilt Cruise. 

I hope you’ll join us!

There will be hexagons, molas, paper piecing, inklingo, fibre art and more! The sponsors who have "jumped on board" already are

  • Janome Canada 
  • Northcott Silks Inc. 
  • Aurifil and more...

Now if you are thinking wow, a 15 day cruise might cost a lot, you have 8 months to save up. And I personally guarantee we will pack in the value. Just consider how you’ve been treating yourself over the past few years. Are you always taking care of everyone else? Do you deserve a holiday? 

The Aloha Quilt Cruise is just the creative escape you need to let your stress melt away. I’d be so thrilled if you’d join me and Cathy Miller for the cruise of a lifetime this fall. And remember, lots of husbands come along on quilt cruises. There will plenty of time to spend together outside of the workshops plus 4 wonderful days on the Hawaiian Islands. So grab your husband or call a friend and book your cruise today. We’ll keep you updated on cruise news, the sponsors and more in every CQT podcast leading up to the departure date. 

Stay tuned to the CQT podcast at Brandy Lynn Designs and sign up for my newsletter on the right hand side of this blog so you don't miss a thing. Over the next few weeks I'll be posting teacher bios, workshop descriptions, featured sponsors, the ports of call, what 
you can expect from a quilting cruise and much more! 

NEXT UP - My holiday CQT Podcast airing Dec. 25th! There will be more cruise news, great holiday prizes, my favourite quiltful stocking stuffers and more... 

AND Cathy Miller will be announcing an Aloha Quilt Cruise blog for up to date developments as we go. And don't forget, I'll be posting dozens of photos of the SNOWFLAKES holiday postcard exchange on Pinterest on Dec. 25th. Check it out - you just might be inspired to participate in the next fabric postcard exchange with Canadian Quilt Talk. 

Happy Holidays Everyone!
