French Art & Textile Tour 2013

Well, she is at it again!  Jeanne Mills has organized another trip to France in 2013!  you can take a peek at one of this years Patchwork Europa slide shows or just go back and read the blog posts for most of Sept.  They are all about the trip, the wonderful travel companions and my quest for the perfect cappuccino!

We were a fabulous group and Jeanne kept us moving on an adventure that not only included quilting but history, food, culture...ahhhh how I wish I wasn't going to be in flux for 2013...otherwise I would be signing up for this next adventure!

As Jeanne says, "Join quilters, who love to travel, on a tour to Southern France.  The tour features activities  adventures and discoveries to inspire your creativity.  In addition to visiting a Provencal fabric-printing factory ( and perusing in their outlet), we'll visit the museum in Nimes where denim was first made and have as a tour through a museum of small quilts, known as "boutis", the corded, quilted and stuffed textiles from the south of France.  Of course, we'll be on the lookout and strop for fabric along the way.

As well, we'll fill our minds and cameras with the bright colors of the region, see the works of artists who lived and painted here.  We'll be inspired by architectural and decorative elements, the countryside we drive through, the food we eat, and the gardens and markets we visit."
