Japan & China Crocheting Cruise (March 2010) ~ Crocheting Cruises Description

Join Craft Cruises™ and Lily Chin on a Far East crocheting adventure. This itinerary balances some of the most interesting ports in Asia with an inspiring onboard educational program. Japan and China are a fiber artist's dream destination with bargains galore on luxurious yarns including the finest silk, cashmere, wools and blends including such fibers at bamboo, yak and soy among others.

Asia is the textile artist’s dream destination because it is full of colorful and masterful inspiration every step of the way. Our first trip to Asia was so exceptional we’ll be returning again and again. The fiber arts of crocheting and weaving are flourishing in Asia. Join us and be inspired by creative designs, new skills and brilliant techniques.

In Japan many of the yarn outlets are visually stunning with exceptional quality yarns in many luscious colors.

Avril is a store that sells Habu type yarns. There are multiple locations in Japan:

In Japan another yarn store is Masuhisa

March is a great time to visit too since it is springtime, the Cherry Blossoms are blooming and it is before the warmer more humid season kicks in making it exceptionally pleasant for shopping and sightseeing.
