We’ve been planning your dream vacation for more than 40 years. That’s a heartfelt boast, but it’s true. As a second-generation, family-owned business, our handcrafted journeys begin and end with you in mind. Our dedication to the art of quilting and the passion for travel, combined with knowledge gleaned from decades of experience, result in brightly patterned journeys designed exclusively for quilt lovers. We know that attention to detail, large and small, are the stitches that make for a successful trip. And so, we travel the roads, sleep in the beds, walk through every fabric shop, and meet with every artisan before crafting the best possible itinerary for our guests. We value what you value. We dream in color. Love of beauty, travel, and friendship are what we share. Every moment of every tour is carefully pieced together for ultimate satisfaction. With more than 21 departures on three continents, our unconditional commitment to customer service remains the hallmark of our work.
Come along. Reimagine your vacation and experience extraordinary.
Forty years ago, Country Heritage Tours was created in the basement of Scott’s childhood home by his mother and offered one tour of New England. Today, with over 21 tours on three continents, we are more than just a travel company; we are a community of friends and passionate quilters seeking to explore the world through the lens of our craft.
The company’s journey began with only a broken typewriter and a dream: to redefine travel for quilters by offering handcrafted, one-of-a-kind guided tours designed exclusively with their interests in mind. We’ve come a long way since, becoming a trusted choice in the travel industry and the creator of award-winning journeys that have left indelible memories in the hearts of our thousands of travelers.
Our annual offering of Quilt Tours is the testament to our commitment of love for quilting and passion for travel. Each journey is filled with carefully curated destinations that weave together visits to patchwork festivals, quilt museums, and fabric shop-hops and allow us to introduce you to our local favorites and to some of our favorite locals. Every tour is a unique story, unfolding in some of the world’s most beautiful destinations and imbued with our rich heritage and deep-rooted love of quilting.
What sets us apart is not just our unparalleled focus on quilts and travel, but also our dedication to providing an extraordinary customer experience. We ensure a seamless journey from the moment you make your reservation to the celebration at our customary farewell dinner. Our extraordinary customer service is a testament to our dedication and the trust that our guests put in us.
We invite you to explore our unique journeys, a vivid collection of handcrafted journeys, each offering a unique opportunity to express your passion for quilting, meet like-minded travelers, and explore the world in ways you’ve never experienced before.
With 40 years of showing quilters the world, we are not just about travel; we are about creating experiences that stay with you, long after you’ve returned home. So, join us, and let us color your world on a reimagined vacation to experience extraordinary.
