By now, you're probably tired of winter, looking forward to warmer weather, green trees, being outdoors and perhaps looking for some new and exciting things to do in 2011. If you like to cruise, eat great food, meet new people, create something new using many interesting techniques, visit lighthouses, see beautiful scenery and have the time of your life, mark your calendars for September 1-10 of this year.
My buddy Mary Stori is leading a cruise to Canada and New England aboard the Royal Caribbean's Explorer of the Seas. This is a beautiful time of year to be visiting Canada and New England - the leaves are gorgeous and the weather perfect. When we're not out sightseeing, we'll be having fun stitching on 2 very different and wonderful projects. There will be a dedicated classroom with 3 full days of instruction - kits included - all you'll need to bring is a small pair of scissors. I'm thrilled to be a guest instructor; everyone will create a small wall hanging utilizing hand embroidery, surface design embellishment and a leaf transfer technique I developed for capturing beautiful fall foliage.
Mary is doing a "Leef Peeper" case for glasses or scissors and teaching many of the beautiful beading techniques she is known for. Everyone will get to do BOTH projects, have plenty of stitching time and go home with a beautifully stitched memory of their time aboard.
