Join Mandy Shaw for a unique and unforgettable quilting adventure amidst the glorious autumnal splendours of New England and Canada. Explore Boston and experience the splendid Fall colours of Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire and New York State. In the company of Mandy you’ll also follow in the footsteps of civil rights activist Harriet Tubman and learn about the remarkable Underground Railroad. Harriet, who was born a slave in Maryland in the early 19th century, will replace Andrew Jackson on the front of the $20 bill. She will be the first African American and first black woman to appear on any U.S. currency. Her extraordinary story will also be replicated in the quilting blocks that Mandy will show you throughout the tour.

5_schwienfurth-jpgOur tour ends in Canada with a visit to Niagara Falls, one of the greatest sights of the New World, and a stay in the iconic city of Toronto. Harriet also crossed the border into Canada and finally secured her freedom here.

Other highlights on this special holiday include visits to the New England Quilt Museum in Lowell and the Bennington Museum, home of the Jane Stickle quilt. You’ll also have the opportunity to browse for patterns and fabrics at the renowned Keepsake Quilt Shop, America’s favourite quilting store. Two hand quilting workshops with Mandy are also included.
