A few weeks ago I tantalisingly dropped it into one of my posts that I had been invited to teach on a needlework cruise early next year. I am now allowed to spill the beans on that one!
From February 10th next year, I will be teaching Portuguese Whitework and Mountmellick Embroidery on a cruise leaving from Sydney to go to New Caledonia and Fiji. There will be a great range of tutors, teaching a wide range of needlework techniques, including Prudence Mapstone with her amazing free-form knitting, Alison Cole with her beautiful goldwork, Margaret Lee with Japanese embroidery, and many others.
I’ll be teaching 2 one day classes and one 2 day class, as follows:
Mountmellick Pomegranate Oval doily with Yvette Stanton (2 day class)
I’m really looking forward to the cruise. I’ve never been on a cruise before (though I have been on boat trips, and managed ok without seasickness!) and I think the idea of some needlework, some relaxing and some touristing is a fabulous one! I actually thought some years back that teaching needlework on a cruise would be an excellent thing to do. I’ve just had to wait for the market to catch up with me!
If you’re interested in learning more about this cruise and booking your place, please head on over to the cruise website. I look forward to meeting you on the cruise!
