When Pigs Fly
COMPLETE KIT
      $16.00  

PATTERN ONLY      $12.00  

NOTE: Pens provided in the kits are either Black or Dark Blue shown with Sew Quilty and When Pigs Fly, other colors can be purchased at your local office supply. The ink matches the color of the pen, so you can replace the ink cartridge if you want the fun outer color but need black or blue to write with.

Lip Balm Carriers
These designs can carry the classic Chapstick and lip balm tubes inside. They don't fit tight around the lip balm tube, so they are easy to slip out use, then pop back in. They are a great size to wear as a necklace, not too bulky, or just leave the necklace off and carry in your purse.

You can also use them to carry other things too, they would make a lovely scent vessel. Just put a few drops of your favorite scented oil on a cotton ball. Wrap it in cling wrap and pierce it in several places with a toothpick so the scent can travel out. The oils won't get on the beads or your clothes.

Come Along with Us! 14 Day Bead Cruise
March 15 - 29, 2016 Panama Canal

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!

Holland America is a great cruise line. Their ships are smaller by almost 1,000 passengers!

We were in port with a Princess and NCL ship in Victoria BC, it possitively made our ship look small! This means less crowding and more attention to detail. Group would be limited to 12-24 beaders only.

You do NOT need to be an experienced beader. These classes are for all levels and experience. You will have over 10 projects to choose from with multiple color choices. Once we reach 16 beaders an extra national instructor will be brought along to learn from at no additional cost to you.

Cruise Price: There is no mark up on the cruise price, it INCLUDES ALL port fees and taxes. You will also receive an additional $50 shipboard credit, and any other promotions until sailing that are listed for this cruise, you will receive also.
NOTE: If you go elsewhere online to compare pricing, make sure the rate INCLUDES the port fees and taxes, they usually post it without!

Cabin Categories:
All prices are based on double occupancy, please e-mail me for single occupancy or other cabin pricing.
If you don't have a room mate and are flexible we can help you double up in a cabin.
The beds can be made into two singles instead of a queen.

L
Inside Cabin
$2275pp

FF
Ocean View
$2500pp

CA
Lanai Cabin
$3325pp

The Beaders Package is an additional $575, this is for 5 full day classes, includes all your bead kits with complete instructions and appropriate thread and needles. You will need to bring your basic tools (snips, cutters, crimpers, extra needles) reading glasses and/or magnifiers. If you don't have any basic tools, a starter kit for $20 will be available.

Also I will be looking into new destinations for 2017, 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!

E-mail me to reserve your space today!

Interested in Beading
& Art Retreats
?
I'll be planning more mini art and beading retreats summer 2015 in the beautiful Skagit Valley in Washington State. To find out more click here or sign up for my beading retreat newsletter.

The mini Art Retreats will be open sessions. Enjoy working inside or outside overlooking Padilla Bay. You can learn anything I have kitted in my studio or pulled from my HUGE bead stash, OR you can bring a beading project you've needed help with! There will be beading, applique quilt designs, and who knows what else available by then for you to explore and create!

 

Having Fun with Applique
Art Quilt Designs!

I have new ones on the drawing board and samples on the way. Click here to see the quilt designs. If you have a pattern idea e-mail it to me. If you want your fluffy buddy imortalized in fabric, I do custom designs, 12" x 12" portrait with placement and color code chart for $85. If it's one I'd like to use as a design for retail and it's okay with you, you will recieve the pattern for FREE! Just e-mail me several pictures of your furry friend close up and in action, and his/her name and a little about them. It helps me capture more of their personality.

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!

Private Teaching...
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.
