Join Us Aboard the Friends and Fiberworks Craft Cruise
Friends and Fiberworks, one of the largest yarn stores in the country, wants to welcome fiber artists and handcrafters of all skill levels and experience to join us on our craft cruise vacation. Come spend a week with fellow crafters on a relaxing and educational experience on the high seas. Learn more about your favorite past-time, meet other like minded people, and partake in one of the oldest traditions in history. A Friends and Fiberworks craft cruise is like sitting in on the biggest knitting circle in the world in the lap of luxury. Sign up to stitch up your next project at your own pace while soaking up the balmy sun and sea air.
Immersive Instructional Craft Cruise Classes at Sea
If you want to spend all your days on the deck of the craft cruise, that’s fine, but Friends and Fiberworks is bringing along a full complement of expert fiber artists who will offer instruction and classes in the following fiber topics:
Our experienced teachers are experts in their respective fields (many are published authors), so you can be sure to get the real deal in every class on your voyage. Our craft cruise helps you brush up on the basics, learn a new stitch, or take your fiber artistry to a whole new level with each project-oriented class you take.
Make Lifetime Friends on the Friends and Fiberworks Craft Cruise
Sewing was a social activity generations ago, but as sewing faded from the mainstream, so too did the communal aspect of the hobby. Friends and Fiberworks wants to reverse that trend one craft cruise at a time. A craft cruise is like one big sewing convention packed with all sorts of fellow fiber artists from around the country, ready to share tips and advice and make new friends along the way. Feel free to create keepsakes by trading a new fiber pieces you’ll be crafting on the cruise with one of the new fiber friends you’ve made.
Stock Up Before and After the Craft Cruise
The Friends and Fiberworks craft cruise is only a week or two out of the year—that leaves 50 more weeks ashore before and after. But fret not, Friends and Fiberworks is open year round with over 28,000 varieties of yarn. We carry many different types of blends, from completely pure animal, natural, or synthetic, from single fiber to three-part blends, in a wide array of combinations. Stop in at Smokey Park Highway at 19 Westridge Market Place in Candler, North Carolina-still in the city limits of Asheville, and our friendly and knowledgeable staff will help you find your favorite on and off the craft cruise. Or prepare for the next craft cruise and order yarn and other fiber products from Friends and Fiberworks online store.
