New Knit and Spins in the shop

New knitknoid for us knitters.  Hand made by a gentleman in New Hamphire for us.  We ordered 24 and
are almost out.  Good news, he is making us some more. As you can see, they come in a short version
with a 5 inch spindle and the taller version has an 8 inch spindle.

Just a note, our ad for the cruise will be in the Interweave Knits Winter edition--don't forget to go into
the website for more information. We have a lot of fun people going--think about coming along, it really
is going to be fun.  We have classes planned by the staff all day and events every night.  You can slip in and
out of our structured schedules as you wish--it's YOUR cruise.
More later!

Events on the Cruise

Hi Everyone!
I just talked to Daphne at the travel agency and she suggested we post the prices for the cruise with the Port taxes, taxes,and gratuities added in so you are not mislead by the base price of the room.  This is a group rate and is lower than the internet when all is added. 
Also, I wanted you to know that we have events and classes planned outside of Melissa's classes (although if you have never taken a class from a national teacher, now is the time!)
We have three conference rooms on board(actually, we took all the conference rooms they had) with a nice
greeting area.  Melissa will have a room of her own the two days she is teaching, the middle one has a stage and is bi-level so we can have our "sample-its" and yarns in there, and the third we can use for our teachers throughout the day.  Each one of our staff will be teaching one hour "make and takes" or knit-knoid projects(that's my word for knit knoids.....)during the day.
Our group has early seating at dinner(6-ish) which is the only meal we have planned. Otherwise, you will not believe the buffet's on board.  They have an Asian and Indian buffet in addition to the regular buffet on the pool deck.  If you have special needs, just let your waiter know in advance for the next day.
There will be a full published schedule of activities that your registration fee covers as well as your "goodie bag" full of fun stuff--and the bag is neat, too.
Remember, with Melissa, Cascade, and our staff on board, as well as Daphne from the travel agency, I promise you will have a wonderful whirlwind of a time!!!

We have finally created a flier with all the correct information on it and it is being printed.
We will download it as soon as it's finished.  Please call Daphne at the travel agency for
rates this week(check last blog for numbers).  Melissa Leapman will be teaching 4 three hour classes.  Two on Sat.and two on Sun.  They include two different cable classes, a mosaic color class and an advanced
crochet hat class.  All the sign up info is coming.  Her classes will be extra at $75.00
per three hour class.  She does have a limit so I would suggest letting us know as
soon as you can so we can get you the classes you want.  The cruise is very affordable,
There is an extra  $100.00 registration fee which covers cocktail parties and lots of goodies and
our own classes being presented throughout our time on board.  We will have it all for you within a few days.  If you would like, call us at 321-632-4579.  This cruise is open to all shops and individuals who want to come along with Cascade, Melissa and us and have a great weekend. We are located outside of Orlando
and will have transportation and pre-cruise lodging available at a group rate.  Also fly/cruise packages are
available through the travel agency.
