Textiles tours 2013 update

Regarding the textiles study tour this year to Turkey. You may have read already on the Home page and the tours page that the tour has booked out and now has a waiting list. The tour to Turkey in September has proven to be a very popular choice for a tour destination and no doubt the combination of textiles activities, cultural and historical sites has made it so. There is a chance we may run a second tour directly after if there is enough interest. Otherwise, InterAsia are running a repeat of the tour to Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan we did in 2011. Jan Mullen, of Star Gazey Quilt fame is escorting that tour. It was a fabulous tour, amazing colours, mosaics, embroideries and food. You wont be disappointed if you go on that adventure. Runs the same time as my trip to Turkey, late September & early Oct 2013. The tour is half booked at the moment. Contact Penny at InterAsia tours if interested, 03 9873 7466. You can see a PDF of the tour on my tours page.
