We offer women’s textile arts retreats and tours to Japan, Vietnam, Indonesia, Laos, Thailand, Morocco and India with Turkey, Iran and the Silk Road being added in 2020/2021.

Please click here to join our mailing list or register your ‘Expression of Interest’ (EOI) for one or several tour destinations. Those on the EOI list for each destination will receive an “early bird” invitation to sign up for newly released tours to that destination before they’re made available to the general mailing list and promoted on social media.  Many of our tours sell out to the EOI list alone before we have a chance to advertise them broadly.
