Kathy Brasill, the owner and tour guide for Handcraftedholidays, took a small group of 6 of us on a delightful jaunt around northwest England and southern Scotland, seeing all things textile and more, staying in quaint old guesthouses with yummy well made food! Doesn't get much better than that in my world. Because we were such a small group on a small (but deluxe) bus we could go to out of the way places and into artist's studios to see them work. I loved every minute of the tour. Being with other people that love yarn, fabric, thread, art, craft and design was so inspiring and exciting. Needless to say I had to buy a bigger carry-on to come home! Checkout Kathy's website to see some photos and I will post some too. We were lucky to see the weavers in action at Stirling castle and have Ruth Jones, the head weaver (from Vancouver) talk to us about the replication of the unicorn tapestries.

Wish I could have gone along on this trip.
