STITCHING AND CRUISING IN THE FUTURE!
Just a few short weeks until we head off for our marvelous Mediterranean Stitching Cruise 2019! Excitement abounds! Here at ArthurAcres we are busy making name tags, putting the final touches on the goody bags and preparing for our daily drawings! Additionally we are concentrating on the wonderful surprises that we will be sharing with you in our structured time at the hotel and on the ship! I am 'busting' to share with you all! This is the really fun part of the trip for me!
This cruise is taking place when Halloween comes along and the ship Azamara Pursuit has a special Halloween Party and prizes for those who choose to dress up and celebrate.
I believe all my ducks are in a row on the exclusive class we are taking in Italy taught by Italian instructors (with interpreters of course), on an Italian technique. I am beside myself with excitement and tell anyone who will listen.
Hope to learn some particulars on the handmade netted background - intriguing to me.
Come join the Needles 'N Fins Stitching Adventures group to keep up with the latest in the best intimate stitching cruises available! In this group we share ideas of desired stitching adventures that are combined with cruising. Our preferable way to travel is by riverboat. However a few choice destinations require a slightly larger boat. The Mediterranean ship is for 600 people and the Hawaiian ship is for 2100. Still quite smaller than the large ocean liners (which is what is required for the Alaskan cruise). I taught my last class on a huge ship over 15 years ago and have never looked back.
Our goal is to provide stitching that is related to the areas we are visiting or traveling. In the past we have offered optional class kits that have been designed by Duo Designs, Inc., or a guest designer. Participants may bring their own projects if they desire to do so and seek stitching help if needed. There have been some surprise projects as well that also include icons of the various regions. Drawings include items that are also area related.
Here are some of the projects and surprises from some of our most current stitching cruises! What memories!

Mediterranean Stitching Memories promises to have more goodies and surprised to share!
What ever will be in store for my students when we get on the Mediterranean? I know they will be just as excited to discover what I have in store for them as I will be in sharing! Can't wait!
If you would like to join us on a future adventure just join our exclusive Facebook Group - Needles 'N Fins Stitching Group and discover what we are up to!
