Alaska Inside Passage Quilt Cruise May 2015
I will be teaching, along with two others, on an Alaska Inside Passage quilting cruise organized by World of Quilts Travel this Spring, May 3rd to 10th aboard the beautiful ship Ruby Princess. The cruise is round trip out of Seattle, WA and visits the Southeast Alaska ports of Ketchikan, Juneau and Skagway, as well as Victoria, Canada. Prices start at $899 for a quilter, with a $200 discount for a non-quilter sharing the same cabin. Cabins are filling up fast aboard the ship, so reserve yours today!

Name Change on Future Patterns
People may notice a new name on my future patterns. I will be slowly switching over from Dana Verrengia to Dana Michelle (my middle name). So when you see designs by a Dana Michelle with Wildfire Designs Alaska - you'll know that's still me.

History of Wildfire Designs Alaska
I was born in Kenai, Alaska and raised in the family fabric store, the Kenai Fabric Center with my mother, grandparents, aunts, and later a sister and several cousins; all of whom taught me to sew, crochet, knit, and so much more. While in college I worked with my family at their fabric store, where I found a talent for creating samples of wallhangings and preparing kits. After several years I decided to try designing on my own. My first pattern, Caribou on the Kenai Flats, was inspired by my hometown.
Thank you for your interest in Wildfire Designs Alaska!
