You may remember John is booked to teach on an exciting Holland America Mediterranean Empires Cruise in August of 2011. The exotic ports of call are in Italy, Greece, Croatia and Turkey; get your camera ready!
The tour company has just added a really special event Just For Quilters!. There will be an exclusive quilters' tour in Istanbul, Turkey. Visit Mediterranean Cruise Website for the complete details but the highlights are a guided tour to the fabric section of the famous and colorful Grand Bazaar, lunch in a wonderful restaurant in the Spice Market, and a workshop with local quilters and block exchange! You can sign up for this full day in Istanbul on the tour company's website. It seems like a great way to see this ancient city and to meet people who share our love of quilting.
If you have a project that you would like Kate to custom cut on the laser, now is the time - she is all caught up! Most projects are just $60 plus shipping from your own fabric. Call 800 745 3596 and ask for Kate!
All that talk about the Spice Market and Turkish food made me hungry. It is lunch time.
