All Aboard With Debbie Bliss

Get ready to mark your calendar and text your knitting friends, DEBBIE BLISS is coming this September!! To the delight of her devoted fans, the highly adored British designer and bestselling author will be making two Canadian appearances on a North American tour to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of her mega popular yarn brand.  A luminary presence in the knitting world, Debbie Bliss’s star began to soar when she transformed bland, boring baby knits into more contemporary styles with her no-fuss approach to design, inspiring an entirely new generation of knitters.

Read along this week and next for all the details on each exciting venue-

Debbie Bliss

It will be a warm and fuzzy gathering like never before as enthusiastic knitters meet and greet the superstar at these two exclusive events:

September 9th-10th in Muskoka

September 12th in Halifax

RMS Segwun at Muskoka Wharf
Its certain to be a fun-filled two day event, as Debbie Bliss arrives dockside on September 9th at the Muskoka Wharf, a shoreline enclave of shops and restaurants, drawing on its heritage as a lumber and boat-building site, where the shrill whistle of the train was once heard three times a day as passengers arrived at this main entry point to the lakes.  Reserve your ticket for Debbie’s book signing and Wear Your Bliss gala, a chance to show off your latest blissful creation to win a prize.  Its all part of the festivities as guests embark on a special sunset dinner cruise aboard the RMS Segwun, one of North America’s original steamships, built in 1887, formerly the chief source of transportation between the three major Muskoka lakes.  Relax, unwind, and soak up the picturesque beauty of cottage country, as the captain glides the vessel effortlessly through the calm waters.  Listen as the haunting steam whistle echoes across the lake, the official heartbeat of Muskoka. 

Grace & Speed

The second part of the Muskoka event takes place on Saturday, September 10th, at the opposite end of the bay, inside Grace & Speed, a heritage centre that pays homage to a century of boating, with the largest in-water display of antique wooden boats.  Reserve your seat for Debbie’s feature presentation and fashion show, browse through the Bliss marketplace highlighting the Fall/Winter Collection 2011 amidst the rich ambiance and history of a bygone era.

Marriott Residence Inn at Muskoka Wharf

Make it a weekend getaway in Muskoka, bring some friends, pack a few essentials (knitting projects), and get comfortable with the full package deal including Friday and Saturday events, and two nights at the Marriott Residence Inn, situated right at the shore of Lake Muskoka and just steps away from both venues.  Watch the sunset from a private balcony, enjoy a complimentary breakfast, wifi, indoor pool and fitness facilities.  Pets are welcome too!  Fine dining, golfing, shopping, galleries, are all within a short distance.  Come and enjoy the Real Muskoka Experience!
