Come, Sail Away with me!
Batik Cruise in 2022!

2022 seems like a great time to plan a cruise. Far enough in the future to avoid any issues. 
We quilt during sea days and explore the ports and sights on port days.

When: 3 - 9 April 2022 
Where:  St. Kitts - a Batik Factory in the Caribbean!

Cruise ship:  Royal Caribbean, Allure of the Seas (a ship in the Quantum-class cruise category with so many things to do and enjoy)
I am planning the cruise quilts now.  As before I am including a super-secret unpublished bonus project, to be revealed on the cruise!

omplete project kits available!

Reservations and Registration by Quit and Cruise:  Call Dawn at 302-530-6187 for more information.

Psst:  This was the bonus project on my last cruise.
