Craft Tours - Crochet

Crochet World December 2015 Cover
I was flipping through the Crochet World magazine for December 2015 in hopes of finding inspiration for the holidays. There are so many wonderfully festive patterns this month and of course, on the cover, is my favorite, a multicolored holiday doily with beads. Inside, my eye was caught by an ad.

10-Day Crocheting in the Emerald Isle June 24-July 3
The entire cost is only $3289.00

Package Includes: Round-trip airfare from New York, private motorcoach and driver/guide, first-class hotel accommodations, most meals, sightseeing as mentioned in the itinerary including an optional Irish Singing and Dancing show, a visit to Blarney Woolen Mills, Avoca Weaving and Spinning, & Ross Castle, Irish scone making class, a sheep shearing demonstration, crocheting workshops with the fabulous Jennifer E Ryan and much more!



I would love to do this at some point in my life, but it won't be happening in 2016. If you go to the website, they also have a tour for New Zealand with Crocheting in 2017. I don't know how many of us are globe trotters, but I really do love to travel. Traveling in groups with an itinerary is even better because the work is already done for you and you can sit back, relax and crochet.

  1. This would be an absolute blast. Especially to Ireland. I'd have to save my pennies for a long time to do this, though. Maybe I could settle for a crochet cruise instead. Or just our retreat. That's fun, too!
