Land Ahoy! Cruise-style Quilt Events

QUITMAN, Texas, Nov 05, 2020 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Stitchin’ Heaven announces Land Ahoy Quilting Cruises, five luxury quilting getaways in cities around the United States. Land Ahoy Quilting Cruises are the most recent addition to Stitchin’ Heaven Travel’s line of quilting-focused vacation packages.

Stitchin’ Heaven Travel scheduled getaways to five major U.S. cities: Orlando, Nashville, Fort Worth, Las Vegas and San Diego. Vacationers can expect to stay six days and seven nights in a luxury hotel, with quilting workshops and field trips throughout. Each destination will boast two instructors teaching workshops to help complete two quilts.

Stitchin’ Heaven Travel made a name for themselves offering quilting-themed cruises to Alaska, Mexico and the Caribbean. When COVID-19 forced the closure of all ocean liners, Stitchin’ Heaven had to cancel all their cruises through the middle of 2021. When global restrictions began to loosen, customers began emailing Stitchin’ Heaven Travel to ask when cruises would resume.

Deb Luttrell, founder and CEO of Stitchin’ heaven, was confronted with a problem: on the one hand, Stitchin’ Heaven was fielding dozens of emails asking about cruises; on the other, major ocean liners were predicting cruises would resume May 2021. The solution she devised was Land Ahoy Quilting Cruises.

Stitchin’ Heaven travel understood that ensuring their guests’ safety was the most important part of planning these getaways. They researched each location and venue to find places that not only lived up to Stitchin’ Heaven Travel’s reputation for quality but were also safe.

“We personally visited each of the hotels,” says Erin Troyer, manager of Stitchin’ Heaven Travel. “We made sure hotels followed enhanced sanitation protocols, and that the ballrooms had enough space to comfortably social distance.”

“We’re very confident that this will be a safe, healthy experience,” says Troyer. “Except for the chocolate and cookies, of course.”
