Is this the one with Carol Doak and Alice Wilhoit among others?  I wish I
could go!
I have heard lots of great stories about the cruises with Mary Stori too.

No, it's American Quilters Cruise with Libby Lehman, Marie Seroski, Joan
Shay, and Karen Combs.Sailing the Caribbean in the cold month of January
sounds like heaven. I ordered some optical illusions patterns from Karen
which I want to try, and she included the info. Nancycog in MD

When DH and I were on our Alaska cruise there was a quilting group from
Seattle.  It was in a room near a lounge.  Everything was in there and I
stopped by to say "hello".  They looked like they had a great time and made
a beautiful quilt too.  There was lots of chocolate and goodies.  On the
last night a quilt was presented to the captain.  I would love to do one of
these cruises.  There is one that is going out next fall up the New England
shore for the changing of the leaves.

I can't speak for a quilting cruise as I haven't been on one...but I can
speak for cruises in general. And the thought of cruising AND
quilting...that is my kinda heaven!!!!

I personally know the people putting this cruise together it is very
affordable! http://americanquilterscruise.com/
These people know what they are doing, Jim West, the man incharge of the
the travel, he used to be a cruise director.  Also he has consulted many
quilters, including some of my friends, as to what quilters want.  He
has also from my understanding got the backing of AQS  AMERICAN QUILTERS
SOCIETY in Paducah for this cruise.
Remember only 3 more days to sign up and you get the $100 off. I believe
it is also 100 down to hold the slot. Call the number as to when the
rest of the money has to be in.

        I should add that I know a lot of women bringing their husbands. There
will be things for them to do on the cruise also, just something to keep
in mind.

I went on Kaye Woods' (RoundBobbin's) Caribbean cruise last month and enjoyed
it. 'Twas my first cruise, and I came to the conclusion that cruisin' per se is
OK, but I'd need the extra incentive of the quilting to do it again (which I
prolly will <G>)

I don't understand the logic of a quilting cruise. I've never been on a
cruise of any type, but it seems to me that there are enough other
activities and sights to see that one wouldn't want to spend a lot of
time quilting. And if you are spending a lot of time quilting, why not
do it in a land-based setting? It seems to me that would be a lot less
expensive.

I'm going on a cruise (not a quilting one) in a few weeks for my son's
wedding.  Are there quilt shops in the Caribbean (Cayman, Cozumel)?

The quilters on this cruise (Alaska) used the time at sea for classes. There
is not much to do otherwise.  The classes are  in the morning and you can
choose to quilt on your own any other time up until 11PM. So if you want to
go sightseeing or do any other activity you are free to do so.

Most of the shipboard activities aren't my cuppa---I'm not into loud or
mindless (gee, that sounds snobbish, dunnit? <EG>). So I liked having the
at-sea days with classes, lectures, & demos of things I *was* interested in. We
took lotsa tours in the ports of call, though :-)
