What’s a Land Locked Quilting Cruise (TM)? Glad you asked!
Land Locked Quilting Cruise(TM)
I dearly love to cruise, and I dearly love teaching. It’s exciting when the two are combined! However, it has come to my attention that many people just don’t like the idea of a cruise. Perhaps they don’t want to be on a ship out in the middle of the ocean, perhaps they’d rather sleep in their own bed! AH HA!
A Land Locked Quilting Cruise(TM) is a “sleep in your own bed” (or prearranged area hotel) sort of retreat with all the color and excitement of a quilting cruise minus the rocking of the ship!
3 to 4 Day Options
Land Locked Quilting Cruise (TM) will offer the land lover 3 days of classroom instruction with me, Karen Overton, Certified Instructor with Deb Tucker’s Studio 180 Design. Classes will vary from learning tool techniques to teaching specific quilt patterns and even a special cruise or two for total beginners who are eager to learn the art of quilting.
Each day will offer the feel and excitement of traveling to the islands through the classroom decor and catered luncheons without having to “get on or off the vessel.”
Class size will be limited to 6 students. Each student will have their own quilting station complete with a Janome sewing machine, all sewing notions, excellent lighting and the use of ALL the Studio 180 Design tools. Ample space for cutting and ironing stations are provided. Yep! All necessary supplies are included except fabric and patterns!
A class supply list will be given prior to the Land Locked Quilting Cruise (TM), with the opportunity to preorder fabric kits where applicable. Details will be in the registration packets specific to the cruise course chosen!
An optional 4th day will include a self-guided “excursion” to our area quilts shops: Cactus Quilts in Texas City, Painted Pony and Quilts in LaPorte, Pinwheels and Posies in Dickinson, and our area’s newest quilt shop, TEO’s Treasures also in Dickinson – plus a recommended lunch stop at the area’s finest, Dickinson BBQ where the traveler can have a real taste of good ole Texas BBQ.
Registration and Details
Land Locked Quilting Cruise(TM) will run Thursday through Saturday, with the optional self-guided excursion to the area quilts shops on Wednesday.
