14 Day Bead Cruise ... March 15 - 29, 2016 Panama Canal
Looking into new destinations for 2016, this will give you plenty of time to save up or sign-up on a monthly payment plan that will make this both affordable and possible! E-mail me to offer suggestions/locations for the next Cruise!
We bead while we're at sea and then enjoy all the regular activities and shore excursions of each port location. What a way to combine our joy of beading (and for me keeping my hands busy!) with seeing the world. I LOVE cruises!

Holland America has proven to be a great cruise line to travel with. Their ships are smaller by almost 1,000 passengers!
We were in port with a Princess and NCL ship in Victoria BC, it possitively made our ship look small! This means less crowding and more attention to detail. Group would be limited to 12-24 beaders only.
You do NOT need to be an experienced beader. These classes are for all levels and experience. You will have over 10 projects to choose from with multiple color choices. Once we reach 16 beaders an extra national instructor will be brought along to learn from at no additional cost to you.
The bead class portion will run around $525-650, this is for 5 projects. Includes all your class kits with appropriate thread and needles. You will need to bring your basic tools (snips, cutters, crimpers, extra needles) reading glasses and/or magnifiers. You MUST bring a task light with a power cord, do not bring a battery operated one unless you also bring rechargable batteries, they only last about 4 hours then you need new batteries! We had several different versions and none of them lasted past the first 1/2 day! If you have a bead board, or portable beading surface that would be good too. If you don't have any basic tools, a starter kit will be available.
E-mail me if you'd be interested in this bead cruise. I will be posting more information as I get it.
Having Fun with Applique
Art Quilt Designs!
I have new ones on the drawing board and samples on the way. Click here to see the quilt designs. If you have a pattern idea e-mail it to me. If you want your fluffy buddy imortalized in fabric, I do custom designs, 12" x 12" portrait with placement and color code chart for $85. If it's one I'd like to use as a design for retail and it's okay with you, you will recieve the pattern for FREE! Just e-mail me several pictures of your furry friend close up and in action, and his/her name and a little about them. It helps me capture more of their personality.
Travelling Bead Board...
As seen in the Bead & Button, June 2012
new bead boards have curved edges so that your thread will slide
around them easier and all the bases are Natural
so that your bead colors stand out better.

Join me on Facebook!
I've been posting new pictures of designs
and I'll be blogging a little on
my travels as I get on the road.
Just search my name "Amy Loh Kupser" in Facebook and
send me a Friend Request!
As I travel cross country, if I'm passing
through or fairly close to your town I offer private classes.
Minimum students 4 and I need a place to park my RV, and 110v
power for free, in front of your house works just fine! I don't
charge for my travel or stay, since I was coming through anyway. Contact
me in advance to find out if I'll be anywhere by you, or
look at my schedule and you can sort of figure out where I'll
be and around what dates. Click here to see what classes are available and the prices.
Classes at Shows
Keep checking or sign-up for my e-mail
newsletter to be the first to know where I'll be and to get
free tickets (not all shows give us tickets though but I'll post
when I have them and for which ones)! Plus new classes to be
added at the trunk shows and crafting shows.
