It's been years since I've had a real vacation! I'm trying to plan a getaway sometime in the next year, and I was thinking about a quilting retreat or a quilting cruise. I've done lots of googling and a bit of research, and the following sound fun, although the timing may not be good for me:
Stitchin' Heaven Quilter's Hideout : http://www.stitchinheaven.com/quilters_hideout.asp
Moda Quilting Extravaganza Cruise: http://www.stitchinheaven.com/travel...e_moda2013.asp
I was wondering if anyone's gone on any of the Stitchin' Heaven retreats or cruises, and what they thought, or if anyone knows of other quilting vacations. I'm looking for ones I don't have to travel too far to get to, so retreats in Texas or cruises that leave from Galveston. I'm also having trouble finding "open" retreats- I'm finding a lot of places that offer space for groups and guilds to organize their own retreats, but I want something already planned and that has an "open enrollment" since I'm not in a group.
Thanks for your help and suggestions!
