Stitch 'n Beach Knitting Cruise!
- Hey knitters:
Please excuse the interruption.
I'm writing to invite you to join me on a 10-day "Stitch 'n Beach"
knitting cruise to the Caribbean, setting sail in February from NYC. I
know it's hard to plan that far in advance right now, but we only have
this group rate for a limited time, and just think how much you'll
need your own, grown-up Spring Break after all the holiday gifts have
been knit and handed out!
The last cruise I worked on was really a ton of fun. I'm sending
along some info below, or visit the websit for more details:
If you have any questions about this cruise, feel free to send me an
Hope to see some of you on board!

have something fun to do on board.
Your vacation starts the moment you board the elegant ship on Thursday
afternoon in New York City. As we sail past the Statue of Liberty,
we'll gather on deck for a Sail Away party. Dinner and a trunk show,
where you'll also receive a Stitch `n Beach goodie bag, top off the
evening's activities. Over the next ten days, as we visit the sunny
islands of the Caribbean, you'll be able to take knitting classes in a
variety of subjects, and attend special evening Stitch `n Bitch
sessions. Take as many or as few classes as you wishyour price

Tortola, St. Maarten, St. Thomas, and San Juan, Puerto Ricoon your
own, sign up for any number of shore excursions such as shopping
trips, snorkeling, nature hikes, and bike rides, or just hit the beach
Back on board the ship, there will be more knitting classes on offer,
or indulge yourself at the spa, take a cooking lesson at the on-board
Culinary Arts Center, check your email at the Explorations Cafe, sip a
cocktail by the pool, or take your latest project with you out on the
deck and knit as you watch the world sail by. On Monday morning when
we get back to New York, you'll arrive rested and refreshed, with a
lot more knitting knowledge and most likely a few new friends as well.
