Las Vegas, NV: April 24 - May 1, 2022

Viva Las Vegas! What three words are more exciting? Las Vegas just has a magical draw to it whether you are one that likes to pull on the slot machine or not. Referred to as the "entertainment capital of the world" there is something for everyone in Vegas. Check out the casinos, see a concert, visit Freedmont St for free live music, or go watch Cirque Du Soleil (it's amazing).

We've selected the Hilton Lake Las Vegas Resort and Spa for our stay in Las Vegas. It has an ideal location in Henderson, NV, 20 miles from the Las Vegas Strip but worlds away from an ordinary Las Vegas experience. With so many entertainment options in Las Vegas, the excursion for this trip was difficult to decide. So, we let our sweet tooth decide for us! We know you will enjoy our visit to the Ethel M Chocolate Factory for a premium chocolate and wine tasting! With instructors Brenda Henning and Tiffany Hayes, this Land Ahoy is sure to be a fun time!

You won't want to miss this Land Ahoy!

All this for only $1999 Double Occupancy.


The Teachers

Brenda Henning

By Brenda Henning

Brenda Henning

Brenda Henning is a compulsive quiltmaker fond of traditional design and a desire to incorporate today's speed-piecing techniques with yesterday's well-loved patterns. Brenda's machine sewing experience began at the early age of 10 on her grandmother's treadle sewing machine, with the first quilt following at age 14. Brenda became a compulsive quilter in the mid-80s and began teaching quiltmaking in 1988 when her third child was an infant. Brenda is the author of numerous books and individual patterns available under the label Bear Paw Productions.

Brenda lives in Anchorage, Alaska, with her husband, Richard. Two Rottweilers, Kyra and Blue, share copious quantities of black dog hair with every quilt that leaves the premises. Brenda teaches for shops and guilds throughout Alaska and the United States.

Her quilts have been featured by numerous publications, including Quilter’s World Magazine, Keepsake Quilting, and Connecting Threads.
