We are having so much fun planning our playing activities for our upcoming riverboat stitching cruise down the Danube this October 21-31, 2018.  There is going to be so much to see and do.  Visiting Prague, then Germany, Austria and Budapest.  I have so many things I want to see and do at each place.  Our travel agent has put together a fantastic itinerary for us so be sure to check it out.  Go to Needles 'N Fins and download the wonderful brochure for specific details.

And, since it is a riverboat stitching cruise, we have lots of great stitching spots planned as well.  We have the optional class kit of the Danube:

She's almost stitched and we'll be sharing full details soon.

Then we have some out of the box mini-workshops planned as well - some optional, some surprises so show up and see what happens.  This fantastic kumihimo bracelet is an optional mini-workshop for one of our slots of free time.

There are at least two other mini-workshops that I have planned as well.  One is the surprise and no charge.  Another is an adventure down a different path for some (somewhat like the kumihimo) and you will have a completed project when done.  All self-finishing so no extra costs involved there.  And . . . under $50 for kit and class.  All you need is to be ready to learn and experiment!

Whatever will it be?  Stay tune!

What follows the riverboat cruise down the Danube?  Well a beautiful adventure through the Canadian Rockies that's what!   We are hosting a train/motorcoach stitching adventure from Calgary to Vancouver.  The possible scenes we will be viewing are breathtaking!  As before, there will be an exclusive design created as an optional class.  

We will have stitching classes at selective hotels as posted for structured teaching of the various optional classes.  Check out the brochure. email me at with questions and for travel questions email Liz at

This weekend I am playing in Houston at Chandail hosted by Saira!  I have a delightful group of students and they are doing a marvelous job!  They work awfully hard though but we still manage to get in a few giggles.

Yesterday we did a class on Beading on Needlework.  We covered many techniques and they nailed it! For the next two days we are going to apply some of those techniques to the beautiful Robbyn's Nest Butterflies design.

Enjoy your weekend as off I go to have more fun!
