Quilters Getaway

23 October 2017 - 27 October 2017

The Norfolk Island Travel Centre and Quilt Norfolk invite you to stunning Norfolk Island for the Quilters Getaway where quilters and patchworkers have the opportunity to master their craft in a series of classes presented by our visiting Tutors, Pam Furniss, Jane Rixon & Jennifer Clouston. 

Teamed with the island’s picturesque setting, conditions are perfect to inspire students and instructors alike creating pieces to exhibit and new quilting themes and designs.

Further details on the quilting workshops are available on the Quilt Norfolk website, www.quiltnorfolk.com

“Far exceeded any expectations.  The 4 ladies who organised the actual Norfolk Quilt were fantastic. The organisation of the event and tiny courtesies were great. For example, the gift bag with information, maps  and gifts, the half day tour around the island to familiarise ourselves, the car outside the door, the food was excellent, the welcome and farewell dinners were excellent and Rowena’s welcome address was first-rate, the thought of giving everyone a CD with photos then coming to the airport was a final lovely touch.” - S.H. from QLD
