Skagway Moonrise, by Ricky Tims
I´ve just learned that there are four spots left for on my 15-day tour to South America in February 2009. We´ll be heading first to the Galapagos Islands, then to Machu Picchu, then to the Amazon River. This trip is not a sewing cruise, but rather a creative development cruise. Most of our time will be spent enjoying the mysteries of these ancient places, but our time together will focus on creative development. The immediate results will be realized by the way you use your camera to take photos. As quilters, you´ll undoubtedly take that information and translate it to your quilting design when you return home.
As an example, the image above, Skagway Moonrise, is a montage of four photos that I took while on my Alaskan cruise in 2005. It represents images reflected in a window, a plank of wood, and a hard, round, ping pong ball sort of object that was embedded in asphalt. In my creativity lectures, you´ll learn to see the world around you with new eyes.
For many, this is the trip of a lifetime. Jim West, our tour director and founder of Sew Many Places, has limited the trip to only 40 travelers, so the event will be more intimate than most typical theme-based cruises.
