    I live in Tok, and I will be glad to answer any questions.This is kind of connecting the dots my oldest daughter went to Australia in 2007 for 3 weeks with a student ambassador group, she loved it.Depending on where your going i will try to tell you all of the quilt shops that I know of.That time of year will be cold and for that reason you should be able to see the northern lights it has to get down to at least 38 degrees to be able to see them. Here is my e-mail address [email protected] I hope I can help just e-mail me. My name is Mary

    Kitty 63, I was born and raised in Alaska and still live here. Your best bet for seeing the Aurora is in Fairbanks. Look at Chena Hot Springs. They have cabins, hot springs and other things. It can be pricey to stay there, but hear it is well worth it and your chances of seeing the Aurora are higher. You won't see them in a city because of the lights. You will want to wear warm clothing and boots. Layer your clothing and you will stay warmer. When we recreate outside we wear long underwear and dress in layers. Alaska is beautiful and each season offers something different. You will NOT see bears in the winter as they are hibernating. You have a high possibility of seeing moose. Our winter has been very unusual with lots of subzero weather. We live north of Wasilla and usually have a lot of snow by now and only have a couple inches on the ground. As for quilt shops, there are a number of them around the state. Someone mentioned the one in Skagway. It is very nice but I doubt you will be going there. It's not the "tourist season" there. You can find some very nice fabric in Talkeetna, Wasilla, Seward and Anchorage. I'm sure there are a number of shops in Fairbanks also. Quilters are everywhere. I hope you enjoy your trip.
