Patchwork & Quilting Holidays 2013 – 2014
STITCHTOPIA 2 announced . Mon 17 – Thurs 20 February 2014. Pre registration is open now.
Introduction from Karin Hellaby
I am delighted once again to be hosting Arena Travel’s patchwork and quilting holidays, where all kinds of quilters get the chance to pick up lots of new tips and techniques, make some new friends, and see some truly wonderful sights along the way.
Each trip is designed to be different and together they cover a variety of destinations and themes. From machine sewing to hand quilting, and from single-base holidays to cruises and quilt festivals, there really is something for everyone.
So what tempting prospects do we have in store for you over the next twelve months?
2012 sees us heading to the Sitges Patchwork festival in Spain, the marvellous Bernina Creative Centre in Switzerland and the unique Outdoor Quilt Show in Sisters, Oregon. Then in October we fly to France and the magical walled city of Carcassonne for a week of quilting in a glorious setting.
These trips are rarely repeated as I have so many other wonderful destinations on my list for the years ahead, and I know many of you return for a ‘new’ quilting holiday each year. So grab the chance while you can, and don’t be afraid of coming on your own since with this addictive hobby in common you can’t help but make new friends.
I do hope you will join me!
