It seems like the holidays have once again snuck up on me this year. The weather here in New Hampshire has been anything but frightful and several days have even been downright pleasant. We're all hoping that this pleasant fall/winter weather pattern isn't a prelude to a heavy snow season in January & February.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you that have become part of our SocialBeadia family this year and wish you all a very Happy Holiday season full of love, peace and hope.
As 2015 rapidly approachs its end, we have some updates for you regarding our 2016 events.
Coastal Maine Bead Retreat:
We have only one remaining seat available for this retreat. Thank you all for registering. We are so excited and wish it was April already. After this last space is filled we will start a wait list.
Remember that your final payment is due by January 15, 2016. Be sure to make your payment at www.socialbeadia.com
Sometime in late January, we will be sending out a message that includes supply lists for all the projects along with kit pricing as well as requests for special dietary requirements and any group requests (i.e. I want to bead with my friend Susie)
2016 Alaska Bead Cruise
After a great deal of frustration and confusion, we have finally made all the arrangements to move the cruise reservations from the travel agent to direct with Celebrity Cruises Group Booking Department. My sincere apologies for the lack of availability on the part of the agent as well as the delay and confusion during the transfer process.
Current guaranteed pricing:
Inside Cabin - $901.87/per person - includes tax - no bonus items
Outside Cabin - Category L - $1151.87/per person double occupancy includes tax plus choice of two of the Go Better bonus items listed below.
You are always welcome to upgrade your cabin or bonus items at booking using currently published fares and promotional deals.
If you book an outside cabin or above by January 2nd, you receive the Go Better bonus deal which allows you to choose any two of the following 4 bonus items
Classic Beverage Package - includes alcohol, soft drinks and specialty coffees - value of $400
$150 per person onboard spending
Prepaid tips - $181 value
We need to have a count of how many people intend to register for the cruise by January 10, 2016 as Celebrity will only hold the block of cabins for that long. Also the negotiated pricing for inside and outside cabins will end on that date and any further reservations will be at the published pricing at the time of the reservation.
If you book by January 10, 2016 Amee Sweet-McNamara will give you 45 yards of soutache as a gift.
