We’re all dreaming of a quilting holiday….

Indian Textile Adventure

Our friends over at Stitchtopia are aways wowing us with their stitchy getaways, but two holidays especially have caught our eye this month… who’s up for sailing away on a quilting holiday with us?

Quilting in Toulouse

Enjoy quilting with a French flavour on Stitchtopia’s Quilting in Toulouse holiday. Patchwork expert Janice Gunner will be leading a group of quilters in exploring Toulouse – cosmopolitan, lively and steeped in heritage. Surrounded by pretty hilltop walled villages, it’s set between the Garonne River and the Canal du Midi in the South of France.

We hear there’ll be plenty of time for exploring the unique local fabrics plus bespoke quilting workshops with Janice. This is topping our 2018 holidays wish list!

This trip takes place from 1st to 6th June 2018. Visit the Stitchtopia website for details or call 01473 633 506.

Quilting trip to France anyone? Stitching, exploring and let’s not forget all that delicious French food! Sounds like heaven to us!

Anyone for an Indian Textile Adventure?

If you’re feeling like exploring a little further afield, let’s take a moment to talk about how amazing it would be to take go on a tour of India’s beautiful textiles! Stitchtopia’s Indian Textile Adventure will see stitch pro Karin Hellaby lead a group of avid stitching fans on a crafting adventure to India next Spring. Holiday makers will get to experience the rich textiles, vibrant colours and cultural wonders of India.

This seriously tempting holiday will take in a string of iconic stops along the way, including Delhi, Varanasi, Jodhpur and Udaipur. At each stop, the group will discover local crafts and meet with skilled artisans who create these masterpieces with fabric – from the The Crafts Museum in Delhi to a weaving workshop in Varanasi plus embroidery, rug making and gold block printing. Oh and you even get to enjoy a workshop led by Karin on your travels too, so you can get creative on the move!

The trip takes place from 10th to 24th March 2018. Visit the Stitchtopia website for details or call 01473 633 506.
