With retreat participation capped to 25 visitors, participants are guaranteed quality time with Michelle Yeo for what will be a fabulous quilting holiday. The Norfolk landscapes and vistas are quilting inspiration in itself, there’s plenty of time for visitors to immerse themselves in the unrivalled beauty of Norfolk Island or simply enjoy a break away from it all.
Michelle Yeo has been addicted to quilting for more than 20 years and has developed unique circular designs that are sought after by publications including Australian Country Crafts & Decorating and Quilter’s Companion. Michelle has been running quilting workshops for over a decade, including sessions for the 2009 Australasian Quilt Convention.
Inspired by antique quilts, Michelle uses reproduction fabrics to achieve a timeless appeal. But Michelle is a contemporary artist who takes advantage of the increased speed and accuracy that is possible using modern piecing techniques and tools.

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.
