Quilt Norfolk and The Travel Centre are delighted to confirm Gloria Loughman will return to lead the April Quilt Retreat on Norfolk Island 23-27 April 2013. A quilting week like no other, participants will spend one on one quilting time and social time with Gloria on a beautiful South Pacific island gem.

With retreat participation capped to 25 visitors, participants are guaranteed personal time with Gloria Loughman 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.

What began as therapy has developed into a passion for Gloria Loughman, who says her love of quilting has given her the opportunity to travel the world. After dabbling in many areas, including strip piecing, bargello, colourwash, fabric dyeing and painting, and machine embroidery, Gloria found a niche in capturing the beauty of landscape quilting.

The Norfolk Island Travel Centre has special packages for travel from $849 per person ex Brisbane and $899 per person ex Sydney for a seven night twin share stay. The prices include return economy class airfare (seat + bag) to Norfolk Island, airline taxes, meet & greet at the airport, self-contained accommodation, car hire (car hire surcharge of $20 per day plus petrol is extra), discount shopping card, complimentary miniature golf and complimentary ‘A Walk in the Wild’. Prices are subject to availability.

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.
