The KnittingFairy calendar for next month is out! Click here (pdf reader required): September 2014
Group Price Extension
Yarn & Stitches & Knitting Fairy
Sea Purls 2015
Thanks to our travel agent, Sheryl Nudds of Cruise Planners, we were able to extend our group prices and allotment of cabins through September 5, 2014. This is a 3 1/2 week extension! We know that many of you are just trying to finalize plans so we wanted to be sure to give you some extra time. That’s the good news!
The other good news is that even though our group pricing will expire in September, that does not mean you have to miss the cruise. Carnival has great pricing and as long as we can find you a cabin, we’d love to welcome you onboard.
Now here is the bad news. Once the cabins are gone, you will, so to speak, miss the boat. So act now. Email Sheryl at email@example.com or call her at 972-231-9383.
Remember, we will sail from Galveston to Cozumel on the Carnival Triumph on Thursday 2/05/15 at 4 PM. We’ll have a day at sea on Friday 2/06, visit Cozumel on Saturday 2/07, have another day at sea on Sunday 2/08 and arrive back in Galveston at 8:30 Monday morning 2/9.
Pricing for the cruise is $404/person for an interior cabin; $439/person for an Oceanview room; and $534 – $554 for a balcony. These prices include taxes and port fees. All it takes to join us is to register and provide a credit card deposit of $150/person by September 5, 2014. This deposit is fully refundable until December 1, 2014. Full payment for the cruise is due December 8.
Our knitting workshop will take place during our two days at sea. This year’s project will be an easy accessory pattern that will allow you to learn a few new things but won’t disrupt your ability to socialize and enjoy your fellow knitters. We plan on two hours of workshop instruction during the morning of each day at sea and another 2 hours during the afternoons at sea for a total of eight hours of knitting instruction and assistance.
The cost of the workshop is $150.00. Each workshop participant will receive the pattern, a skein of yarn hand-dyed exclusively for Sea Purls 2015; a Sea Purls 2015 tote bag packed with some surprise goodies; and 8 hours of instruction. All you need to bring is your favorite set of needles.
In addition to simply emailing Sheryl, provided you have at least two passengers to a cabin, you may also complete a self-registration by going to http://www.bellavoyager.com/. Go to the “Groups” tab and select Sea Purls 2015.
Sheryl will be posting and updating cruise and workshop information at: http://www.bellavoyager.com/rw/view/3815.
Don’t forget, tomorrow we have Amy Semifero here from 1-3pm doing a demonstration of felting. Christmas is coming and this would be a great FAST way to get some projects done. Come by and check it out!
We will be closed this Sunday for Mother’s Day. My family is taking me out for the day. The rest of the week will be regular business hours.
See you soon!
So, this is May! Wow.
Today, May 1st was our official Spin-in for the month, however we have decided that we love spinning so much that we are going to open our classroom every Thursday evening for anyone who wishes to come and spin. It’s not an official class, just a place where we can gather and enjoy being together.
Sunday May 4th we will have Rose from Creative Touch doing chair massage from 12-5pm You can call the shop to reserve your time in advance or just come by and sign up. The massages are $1/minute. This is our last month with Rose as she is moving to Pennsylvania, but I am very pleased to announce that Misty Urech will be taking over! Misty will be on hand Sunday so that you can meet her and she will be her on the first Sunday of the month most months from here on. I’ll be sure to announce things.
Sunday May 11th is Mother’s Day and the shop will be closed so that I can go to Scarborough Faire with my family.
Regular business hours will apply the rest of the week.
Saturday May 17th we will have an Introduction to knitting lace with charts class from 1-4pm. The cost of this class is $35 which includes the patterns for 3 different scarves you can make. There is no homework but there are materials you will need to provide.
We will not have any special hours or closings for Memorial Day. We will be open on Sunday like normal and we are always closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.
As always, we appreciate our customers and we are always happy to see you at Knitting Fairy!
