Alaska Handspinning Cruise (September 2009) ~ Handspinning Cruises Description

In Alaska you will witness expressions of nature that will put you in touch with some of the most powerful forces of life on our planet. The spectacular scenery, majestic mountains, fascinating wildlife and stunning glaciers will thrill you and our onboard class program will inspire you.

Join Craft Cruises™ and Tulasi Zimmer from the Joy of Handspinning as we sail out of Seattle's lovely Puget Sound bound for forested isles, icy -blue glaciers and charming frontier ports. This cruise features an extensive onboard educational program that includes handspinning, knitting and beading. Cruising out of Seattle will give handspinners from across the country and from around the world the opportunity to explore this "Emerald City" and to shop at some of the best fiber art stores in the country.

Pre-Cruise activities in Seattle will include visits to local stores specializing in spinning supplies such as the Weaving Works and possibly a visit to an award winning Romney Sheep and Angora Goat farm in beautiful Maple Valley.

In Sitka, Alaska the group will visit Raven Frog Fiber for a tour and dyeing demonstration.  There will be yarn and fiber shopping opportunities in every port.
