Wacky Jackys Bali Quilters RetreatNOTICE TO QUILTERS...

Wacky Jackys is offering an ultimate ladies quilting get-away retreat to Bali. Stay with a group of like-minded quilters in a boutique resort in the beautiful rural seaside village of Candidasa (pronounced Chandi-dasa). Candidasa is situated in the quiet, rural sector on the north-east coast of Bali where the locals are extremely friendly and helpful and it’s also the location of the Wacky Jacky’s batiks Bali store.

Jacky (your host and travelling companion) is a seasoned traveller and has been going to Bali for over 25 years. She has a wealth of knowledge of Bali customs, traditions and loves nothing more than showing off the best of this majestic island.

Jacky has been a quilter for over 15 years and a quilting instructor for over 6 years. She has combined her passion for Bali with an endless passion for quilting.

Jacky has put together a package that is flexible enough to cater to all your needs. She has selected the most amazing experiences over her last 30 visits to Bali and packaged them up so you will get to make the most out of your adventure.

This is an extraordinary opportunity to see the very best of Bali with someone that has local knowledge as well as enjoy your favourite hobby with a group of fun, like-minded friends.

- Optional... Your sewing machine (or we have 7 on site at our Wacky Jackys shop).
