  1. Hi Potential Travelers,

    Please click this link for the knitting cruise with Andrea Wong.

    Please fill out the vital contact information linked there. Here’s a copy of that link.

    724-318-5299 text or call

    Five people are already booked. One category is already sold out. Text me, email, reply, call Andrea, please get in touch. The trip includes air, but that special is time sensitive. Last thing I want to have happen is to have someone lose out on that.

    Sincerely, Laurie

  3. Andrea , it is your friend , Carol Finley, in Florida!
    I would love to go on your trip, it will be awesome!
    However , since I have been retired because of the accident I had at school when I was teaching ( cracked my head open on a
    Concrete floor causing memory lose, and was medically retired.) I just don’t have the money anymore, I know it will be awesome but it is not to be. I would love to go but, I guess the Lord has other plans for the rest of my life.
    Please keep me on your list I might not be able to visit with you , but maybe there will be miracle . HE can do it!
    I think of you often. I am so glad we met and hope we will again. I will continue to knit as long as I can. Please my friend keep me in your prayers. Anytime you are this way give me a call 904-477-9230 (cell), or home 904-259-4902
