Tour through London, France and The Netherlands, with ...
Lynn Hewitt and I as we host a fabulous tour to the UK, France and The Netherlands in April 2010.
Our first stop is London where we visit the Victoria & Albert Museum to see the fabulous new exhibition - Quilts 1700-2010.
The first exhibition of its kind in the UK, this major exhibition explores 300 years of British quiltmaking. There will be more than 65 quilts on show ranging from a cot quilt made in the 1690s through to recent examples of contemporary artists; from the highly decorative through to homemade modest bedcovers.
When I heard that this exhibit was planned, I immediately started planning this tour to coincide with it.
After London we go to France and visit the fabulous Pour L'amour du Fils quilting event and then onto Giverny to visit Monet's Garden (see my earlier post for some great photos of the gardens) and we will take part in a design workshop.
Then on to The Netherlands for another quilt show - OEQC.
Along the way we will stop to smell the flowers in many places, including Keukenoff Garden. In addition to the millions of blooming flower bulbs and fantastic flower shows, Keukenhof has the largest sculpture garden in the Netherlands and is the most photographed spot in the world.
There are so many quilts and flowers - that we'll all be in heaven! Take a look at the itinerary - and contact Mandy on 02 9555 9322) or info(at)creativelivingmedia(dot)com(dot)au to book your spot!
Lynn and I look forward to you joining us...
