There is something magical about traveling through America’s Heartland.. Whether is is the crisp spring air or the rolling countryside. The journey is as good as the final destination. Iowa and Missouri are home to some of the finest quilt stores available such at Missouri Star Quilt Company as well as Top Ten Quilt stores as listed in the Quilt Sampler. Add museums, towns filled with history and shopping for antiques in cozy downtowns that smack of yesteryear. This results in a combination that can’t go wrong! Please join us as we celebrate the love of quilting together while taking a step back in time and enjoying the small towns that are the heart of America.

It’s true: Everything is bigger in Texas. From portion sizes, pickup trucks, and 10-gallon hats to the thousands of miles of rugged, gorgeous terrain. This state encompasses such a wide variety of human experience that exploring all of its nooks and crannies would take months — maybe years. We will have nine days and we intend to pack it in! Texans claim it’s hard to find a better place on this planet for a plate of ribs or brisket. We intend to put this myth to the test. We will travel from Michigan and of course enjoy some stops along the way. Once we arrive in Houston you will have two full days to enjoy the International Quilt Festival, a premier quilt festival that has made it way on to many “bucket” lists for good reason! Houston boasts that is the fourth largest city in the U.S. If you don’t want to spend two days at the show, local transportation is easy to get to museums. Plenty to do and see! Ten years from now you’ll be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than the things you did. So pack you boots, bring your sense of adventure and join us in the Lone Star State!
Cost: Double: $1,599pp Triple: $1,499pp Quad: $1,399pp. Single: upon request.

Join us on this new adventure as we explore the Traverse City area which is beautiful in the spring! We’ll do all the driving and planning while you enjoy the scenery, local attractions and a day out with friends.
Here’s the catch….this trip is a Brown Bag Mystery Trip….which means we cannot tell you exactly where you are going! When you board the Motorcoach in the morning we will provide you will a bag that you will use throughout the day. We will travel the gorgeous Michigan countryside as we tour a mix of Michigan Made Companies. Some we will tour and some we will just visit. But at every stop you will be given an item from that location to put in your bag. At the end of the day you will have a bag of delicious items to take home with you as a memento of your tour. For example if we stop at a Farm Market you may go home with a jar of fresh made jam. Hopefully at the end of the day you have a couple of new favorites in the Traverse City area.
Clear your calendar and bring your adventurous spirit!
