All aboard – Let’s go CROCHET CRUISING

Yes!!! You did read that correctly. There are such things as crochet cruises. Who would have thought!? Well not me until earlier this year when a fellow crocheter and owner of Crochet Australia departed on one in March.

What’s not to love about a crochet cruise? Food, fresh air and serious time for crochet, all whilst surrounded by fellow hookers and beautiful views. So I’d say that’s a big win.

The Celebrity Solstice is a 5 star cruise ship.

Let me tell you a little bit about the cruise itself. In point-form as it’s just neater that way.

    • Exclusive workshop venue bathed in natural light
    • Registration morning tea – welcome aboard and introduction
    • High quality ‘Welcome Kit’ containing the design of your choice, yarn and a selection of other quality crochet tools and accessories you’ll need – worth over $250
    • Extra yarn to make a blanket ‘square’ and other fun items for our charity auction
    • Choice of three workshops based on your skill level
    • Additional development workshops to add to your skills base
    • One-on-one assistance for your projects as required
    • 10 crochet workshops (two per sea day) with teachers to explain their designs and generally assist you with your work
    • Lounge ‘Hook up’ sessions on port days and sea days
