About Us

What's New?

Cheema Gear

For a limited time, Cheema gear will be available for order through Tall Ships Art Productions.  Please see attached order form and the available clothing.  Laura Lea Nelson will be at the club on Saturday, November 21st, from 8am-10am to take orders.  She will have a few samples there for sizing.  If you have any questions please contact Laura Lea.  Orders will be taken until November 25th to guarantee for Christmas delivery.  There will not be another order until late April, so if you would like to take advantage of items for Christmas and Florida, this will be your only chance.

Orders can also be faxed, phoned in or via email to Tall Ships until closing on November 25th.  Phone #'s and email can be found on the order form.

New Cheema Gear

We are changing the order process for Cheema Gear.

The online order form has been temporarily removed from the web site. 

The new order form will be available in the next 2 weeks with NEW Cheema gear to replace items that have been discontinued.  A few items will be back by popular demand. 

This new order process will effect the times of year that orders can be placed.  

PLEASE NOTE: We will have THREE order dates a year, if you want items for Christmas, Florida or early spring you will need to place your order on the NOVEMBER Order Date, we will have a 2nd order date in late APRIL and the 3rd order date for late JULY so it is back in time for Nationals.  The actual dates will be announced when the order form and art work are released

Payment and sizing options will stay the same, you will still be able to pay/try on samples for your order with your credit card or cash by calling or dropping by Tall Ships.  

Please contact if you have any questions.
