Quilt Norfolk say it’s not too late to book for this year’s Quilt Getaway to be held on Norfolk Island 21-25 October. Although it’s the final countdown with only 9 spaces remaining - Quilters best get a hurry-on!
Four inspiring instructors Amanda Daly, Deborah Louie, Lyn Uppill and Mary Geary from Australia and New Zealand will meet quilters on Norfolk Island for a week of quilting, quilting and more quilting.
Dedicated quilters and patchworkers will master their craft in a series of classes teaching participants a range of design and fabric art skills. Although organisers do promise there is still time for a holiday to enjoy Norfolk Island tours and activities on offer.
Instructors will give students their undivided attention for the full week on Norfolk Island. 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.

Norfolk Island Travel Centre
Norfolk Island Travel Centre is an award winning travel agency that specialises in quality, personalised travel. Norfolk has a unique beauty of its own, with its renowned tall majestic pines, sheer cliff faces, coral reefs and beautiful beaches. Almost one third of the island is devoted to National Parks and Reserves. But Norfolk Island is far more than a picturesque island in the South Pacific, it is paradise with a past. What was once a convicts’ nightmare is now the tranquil home of the descendants from the Mutiny on the Bounty, who have their own unique culture and their own language. There is much to see and do on Norfolk Island: fascinating historic tours, see Kingston which is a World Heritage Listed area,outdoor re-enactments of the Bounty Mutiny (with parts played by actual descendants of Fletcher Christian), ‘Light and Sound’ shows, eco-tours, glass bottom boat coral reef trips, swimming, snorkeling, fishing, dining out in the numerous fine restaurants, bush walking, scenic horse riding, golf on what has been called the world’s most beautiful golf course, bowls, tennis, and squash. Take advantage of Norfolk's tax-free shopping or perhaps simply take some time out to relax and enjoy Norfolk's peaceful existence.
