Do you dream of Ireland? The infinite shades of green in the landscape, the warm welcome of the people, the rich cultural heritage, and best of all…the quilting inspiration! If so, we’d like to invite you to make 2016 the year you live your dream of a lifetime and visit the Emerald Isle.
Quilters have a long history with all things Irish. Think single, double and triple Irish chain quilts, Celtic Twist Blocks, or even McCall’s own popular Tales of Ireland free block of the month quilt pattern! And the McCall’s Quilting Ireland travel adventures are always sold-out trips. We carefully plan each tour especially for quilters, including interaction with local quilt groups and visits to quilt shows where available. On all our trips, quilting inspiration abounds. From breathtaking scenery to spellbinding churches and museums to unique local sites and shopping…our travelers love the way we pamper them and help make their dreams come true!
The 2016 Quilting, Castles, and Gardens of Ireland tour will be hosted by Agnes Warren, quilting blogger, multi-crafter, and devotee of all things Irish. We’ll also travel with savvy professional tour hosts and guides as we take in all that Ireland has to offer. Check out the complete itinerary here!
A limited number of places remain for our 2016 tour of Ireland, with optional Scotland add-on. Won’t you join us July 3-13? We’re going to have a marvelous time! Get all the details here.
