Quilting Holidays

Quilting Holidays with Arena Travel and Stitchin Heaven

These holidays are hosted by Karin Hellaby, the owner of Quilters Haven. Arena Travel also send a tour manager on each holiday.
Karin 's introduction...........

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?

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!
