All Aboard!

The blog will be back for regular programming on Wednesday. Last week, Marie and I were cruising on the Royal Caribbean Allure of the Seas ship.AllureBL

After a year of planning with Baby Lock and Inspirations’ dealer Flash Sew and Quilt, Naples, FL, we had a ball.Cruise1BL

Not only did 70 cruise attendees embroider with the Stitching Sisters, they are also received expert software instruction from Inspiration education consultants, Donna Siler and Lisa Knight.  Donna is at the helm here.DonnaBL

And Lisa is first mate during this class.LisaBL

Marie and I enjoyed connecting with familiar faces – embroidery enthusiasts we’ve met all over the country through the past six years.SisterBL

And our dealer, Harold Havard, is one easy-going chap! “Yeah, mon” as they say in Jamaica.HaroldBL

If you’ve been considering an embroidery/sewing/quilting cruise, sign up today. It’s a blast!

    We had so much fun. I loved that they also eat, and played with us. It was also fun shopping for fabric stores in other countries.

    Never thought I would enjoy something so much!!! And Eileen, Marie, Donna, Lisa and Joan were so generous with not only fantastic sewing kits but with their talent and knowledge. If you ever want to try this make it a DIME event with BABY LOCK machines (which Baby Lock graciously lent for this – Destinys and Crescendos!!!)

    If you take one of these cruises will what you teach as far as embroidery be able to be used on other brands of sewing/embroidery machines?
