Crafty Chica Art Cruise 2009!

We’re all set to go!

Crafty Chica Cruise 2009!
DATE: March 15-19, 2009
DEPARTS: from San Diego
WHERE: Catalina and Ensenada (one day at each town, one full day at sea)
COST: $539 inside cabin. $589 ocean view cabin (based on double occupancy)

Cost is lower for spouses/people who do not want to craft.

INCLUDES: Everything! Room, food, tips, entertainment, two cocktail parties, craft supplies/kits for five workshops, personal instruction, tote bag with giveaways, and much more! Plus there will be three bonus mini-workshops for $5 each.

As far as the classes, I will have those listed soon. I do know we will have a jewelry, fabric/sewing, assemblage, paper arts/scrapbooking, and Day of the Dead. Each workshop will have the theme of “art de la soul” – self empowerment, making visual representations of your life goals, and discovering something new about yourself!

The last two cruises were full of laughs and newfound creativity. We crafted our brains out, and then went shopping for cool treasures in Mexico – and then came back and used them in our art projects. Many of us still stay in touch! Check out the label below to see all the pictures and links! This cruise is a great way to connect with your sister, mom, hubby, cousins, and friends.

And why not go by yourself? It’s also a bold way to step outside of your normal routine and meet new people.

My favorite quote from this recent cruise was from a sweet lady named Mary Pat. The first day she said “I’ve never used glitter or such bright colors!” By the end of the cruise, she was like, “Who has the hot pink paint? I need more glitter!”

SWAPS: We will be making two swap projects as well.

Students are encouraged (but not required) to bring personal/favorite supplies, scrap fabric, trims, etc.

Aside from crafting, there will be shopping in Catalina and Ensenanda, great entertainment, a full casino, a spa on board the ‘Elation’ ship (cost is separate). We will have a 24-hour craft room. This year our dining room is connected to our craft room. And we will have better lighting!

Sign up here at – All it takes is $100 to hold your spot now, and the next $100 is due in September and then the rest is due in December.

  1. I’m a quilter and when I have attended a workshop in the past, there is lots of equipment and supplies that I take. Never doing a cruise before, I don’t know what is allowable and what is not. What type of equipment should each person bring?
    What is not allowed on a cruise?
    When you have the projects determined, what are good supplies to bring?
    What are cool traders?
