Learn About Us!

Our tour operation is based in Simpsonville, South Carolina. We handle travel arrangements within the United States for both individuals and groups.

We offer tours to the lesser traveled regions of the U.S., such as New England, the “Deep South” and the Pacific Northwest. Many of the tours are tailor made to suit each individual or small group, as far as the length of the tour, its content and price category is concerned.

U.S. Quilt Tours ideology is based on the belief that the “real” America is found off the beaten path – away from mass tourism, American history is not only found in Washington, D.C., but on Indian Reservations, the Louisiana Cajun Country and on the lands of the Amish in Pennsylvania and the quaint villages of New England. The spectacular nature attractions are an all important element on many of our tours, where visits to the National Parks are frequently incorporated.

Quilters from different parts of the world travel with us as individuals and in groups, to experience the camaraderie of fellow travelers that have a common interest in the art and craft of quilting.

Elderly Woman Quilting

Iceland Quilter's Adventure - Linda & Jim H.

My husband and I had a wonderful time on our summer trip to Iceland with Gudrun and we appreciate all your efforts to make our tour so successful. We enjoyed the Icelandic people, natural wonders, culture, food, sagas, and camaraderie among the participants.
