Quilting & Craft / Balinese Culture

When: 7th – 16th September 2020

What: Ultimate Quilters Retreat

Who: Wacky Jacky’s

So, if you’re into quilting and wanting an authentic Bali experience, you should definitely try the Ultimate Quilters Retreat. This one has the advantage of leaving from Australian home soil (departing from Brisbane) – with an all-inclusive package so you won’t have to worry about coordinating things yourself.

And not only will you further your quilting skills, but you’ll also discover Batik fabrics and explore other artisan skills. Jacky also claims to know Bali intimately, so she apparently provides a truly authentic, behind-the-scenes insight into Balinese culture and local sights.
