Fay Nicoll, Owner of Sunshine Sewing & Quilting, is proud to be the quilting teacher on the
2015 Come Quilt Cruise Away With Me Cruise, run by Cruise Planners, North Las Vegas, NV.
This exciting, inspiring, and relaxing
7 night quilting cruise leaves Ft. Lauderdale and travels to  
Nassau, Bahamas; Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas; Philipsburg, St. Maarten.
Fay will be teaching
3 fantastic classes - see below.
Fay Nicoll came to quilting and fabric design after several other careers,
which included a stint on Broadway, recording 4 record albums, and owning
several other businesses, (one of which was a Diet Center…but that was
many M & M’s ago!!!) After 40 years of sewing clothes, and costumes for the
stage, Fay bought an embroidery machine, and then shortly thereafter, she
bought the embroidery store.

When an accident put her in a wheelchair for three months, sewing her
clothes was out of the question. But not one to be deterred easily, and
needing to be in front of a sewing machine, she picked up a paper-piecing
book, chose a block, made it, and a quilting fiend was born.

The embroidery store was transformed into an embroidery/quilt shop in no
time, and within a few months, the shop, Sunshine Sewing in Margate,
Florida, became Sunshine Sewing and Quilting, the second largest quilt
shop in the state.

Fay was asked to teach throughout the state, and would bring her own
designs everywhere she went. The response was overwhelming, and so her
first pattern company was born.  Shortly after, Fay realized there was also a
need for Jewish patterns, which led to the creation of her second pattern
company. The Jewish patterns quickly led to the design of her first line of
Jewish fabric, called Star of David, which sold out very quickly. To date, Fay
has designed six lines of Jewish fabrics, as well as stationery, and gift items
based on her designs. Several of Fay’s original quilt designs have been
published in the quilt world’s most popular magazines.
Stay tuned…Fay Nicoll has many new things in store for the quilting industry.
BARGELLO:  38" x 38"
All strips will be cut ahead of time for you.
Just sit down and sew the strips together.
The actual “class” will teach you how to create the beautiful
Bargello effect.
Since each quilter will sew her strip sets together differently,
each and every Bargello quilt will have its own beautiful
dynamic effect.
All strips will be cut ahead of time for you.
Just sit down, sew the strips together.
Cut out pre-fused flowers of your choice.
After sewing the backdrop (background) for the flowers, you will
create your own unique “bouquet”, which you will then learn to
thread-paint, and bring the flowers to life!
Beautiful threads will be included in kit.
Optional: Hot-Fix Rhinestones and Applicators will be available
for purchase for extra embellishment of the floral bouquet.
120 DEGREE RULER QUILT: 50" x 50"
Use this wonderful 120-Degree specialty ruler to make a
charming quilt or wall hanging, using pre-cut jelly roll strips and
This will also make a beautiful tablecloth for any special occasion.
This quilt looks very complicated, but is quite simple to make.
Once you have made this first one, you will definitely be looking
for other jelly rolls to make a second one!
Fay & Mr. Wonderful (aka Richard) of Sunshine Sewing & Quilting will supply the quilters with
new Janome top-of-the-line sewing/quilting machines, insuring trouble-free sewing and quilting.
There will also be small workshops and demos for the quilters.
A Mini-Sunshine Shop will be onboard for the quilters' convenience.

For our Jewish quilters, Passover runs April
4 -10, 2015.  
Royal Caribbean will have a Rabbi onboard for Passover service, at no extra charge.
