Tour Overview
The Tour commences in the historic City of Boston Massachusetts where we have 3 days to explore the sights, including the Boston Tea Party Ships, the home of Paul Revere, Quincy Market and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.
From Boston we travel by coach into Vermont.  It is not known as the Green State for nothing with beautiful rolling hills and wooded mountains, this is where we will spend the bulk of our time visiting private homes, participating in a one day punch needle workshop, exploring lovely towns like Woodstock with its covered bridges and traditional New England architecture, historic Deerfield and the amazing Bridge of Flowers.
We spend a day visiting the Vermont Quilt Festival and another experiencing the Shelburne Museum which is famous for its amazing collection of quilts as well as the horseshoe barn than houses an incredible collection of circus memorabilia together with many other wonderful exhibits displayed in original barns, houses and stores that have been moved onto the property.  Not to be missed is a ride on the historic Merry go Round.
We leave Vermont and head into Pennsylvania and Lancaster, the heart of the Amish Community where horsedrawn buggies replace cars.  The Central Market is right across the road from our hotel and offers a large array of goods from food to handcrafts.  Visit the towns of Intercourse and Bird in Hand and meet with some of the lovely ladies from the Red Rose Quilters.   A side trip into the Brandyvine Valley, Delaware to visit the beautiful Longwood Gardens created by the du Pont family and Winterthur Gardens & Museum also founded by the du Ponts is also planned. 
Our last stop is New York City.  Here we will join in the 4th July celebrations, walk the High Line, visit the World Trade Centre and enjoy so many things this bustling city has to offer.
