A few notes about the cruises this year:

  • As you can expect, there are some Covid precautions we will be taking.  We will be limiting the number of tickets so we can be as socially distant. This will also help us maintain some distancing should we have to vacate the top and front decks due to inclement weather.
  • The meals will be box meals instead of a buffet. We will send you a menu a few weeks before each cruise to get your box lunch order.
  • We'll ask that you mask up when you arrive at the boat and move around the boat. When you are seated, eating, and drinking, you can remove your mask.

Join us for a virtual class that will be taught live on Zoom by Artistry.  American Modernism (similar to Modernism) is a movement that supports the idea that humans have the power to create, improve, and reshape their environment with the aid of scientific knowledge, technology and practical experimentation. Georgia O’Keefe studied the physical makeup of natural and industrial objects and magnified them with a slight tendency towards abstraction. Examples of American Modernist works will be shown during the class and some of O’Keefe’s painting techniques will be demonstrated live by the instructor.

Your ticket includes a 2.5-hour river cruise, meal, lots of door prize drawings, a Knit The River keepsake, and new this year, a store onboard, trunk shows from some great vendors!

A few notes about the cruises this year:

  • As you can expect, there are some Covid precautions we will be taking.  We will be limiting the number of tickets so we can be as socially distant. This will also help us maintain some distancing should we have to vacate the top and front decks due to inclement weather.
  • The meals will be box meals instead of a buffet. We will send you a menu a few weeks before each cruise to get your box lunch order.
  • We'll ask that you mask up when you arrive at the boat and move around the boat. When you are seated, eating, and drinking, you can remove your mask.
