Caribbean? Mexican Riviera? Alaska Glacier & Denali?
Looking into new destinations for 2016, this will give you plenty of time to save up or sign-up on a monthly payment plan that will make this both affordable and possible! E-mail me to offer suggestions/locations for the next Cruise!
We bead while we're at sea and then enjoy all the regular activities and shore excursions of each port location. What a way to combine our joy of beading (and for me keeping my hands busy!) with seeing the world. I LOVE cruises!
10 -14 Day Panama Canal
I haven't decided whether it will be with Holland America or Norwegian Cruise Lines, they are both quality cruise line with an impecable repuation. Group would be limited to 12-24 beaders only.
Cabin rates start anywhere from approx. $1100 and up per person. Does not include bead class portion which will run around $525-650 depending on the length of the cruise, this is for 5-8 days worth of projects. Includes all your class kits and bead supplies. You'd need to bring your tools (snips, cutters, crimpers, needles) reading glasses and/or magnifiers, extra task light and power cord. If you have a bead board, or portable beading surface that would be good too.
It's not for sure yet, but it's is a strong possibility! The 10 day cruise price range starts at around $1000 and embarks and debarks in Miami FL, the 14 day start in San Diego, CA and end in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. This would give us anywhere from 5-8 full days of beading while at sea or passing through the Panama Canal. Beading projects would be everything from necklaces to earrings. Some quick, some more complex giving us a chance to get up and move around, time to walk around and enjoy the sights and still have enough time to bead to our hearts conent! E-mail me if you'd be interested in this bead cruise.

Travelling Bead Board...
As seen in the Bead & Button, June 2012
new bead boards have curved edges so that your thread will slide
around them easier and all the bases are Natural
so that your bead colors stand out better.

Join me on Facebook!
I've been posting new pictures of designs
and I'll be blogging a little on
my travels as I get on the road.
Just search my name "Amy Loh Kupser" in Facebook and
send me a Friend Request!
As I travel cross country, if I'm passing
through or fairly close to your town I offer private classes.
Minimum students 4 and I need a place to park my RV, and 110v
power for free, in front of your house works just fine! I don't
charge for my travel or stay, since I was coming through anyway. Contact
me in advance to find out if I'll be anywhere by you, or
look at my schedule and you can sort of figure out where I'll
be and around what dates. Click here to see what classes are available and the prices.
Classes at Shows
Keep checking or sign-up for my e-mail
newsletter to be the first to know where I'll be and to get
free tickets (not all shows give us tickets though but I'll post
when I have them and for which ones)! Plus new classes to be
added at the trunk shows and crafting shows.
