This exciting tour is for beginner to advanced textile artists. We will be visiting North Yorkshire, the Lake District and Scotland. You will take full day workshops in rug hooking, punch needle, proddy, quillies and stitching with 6 wonderful teachers. We will also visit a tapestry and rug tufting studio, a woollen mill, listen to some wonderful talks and of course do a little shopping. The scenery will take your breath away and so will the sheep!
A detailed itinerary and pricing will be available soon.
Yvonne’s journeys are well researched, well organized and well executed. Her trips are always filled with a vast array of experiential and fun activities.
In China, our group participated in a charming rural cooking class where we baked stuffed zucchini flowers. Our group cycled on top of Xi’an’s old city wall and walked amongst the Terra-Cotta Warriors. In Dunhuang, we explored the Thousand Buddha Grottoes and rode camels along the sand dunes at sunrise.
Yvonne’s choice of accommodations was also a fascinating part of our travel experiences in China.
Yvonne has also guided trips “on the road less travelled”, like the time she organized a large group of women to hike the coastal trails of Cornwall, England. Each day the group hiked along rugged shorelines, admired seascapes, and enjoyed quaint inns and pubs. These memories, and the camaraderie shared by the women of this trip, will last a lifetime.
Traveling with Yvonne is always a special pleasure and a privilege. I highly recommend that you try one of her trips!

I have had the pleasure and good fortune to travel as part of a group led by Yvonne on several occasions. I have seen the best of what Engelberg and Luzern have to offer in the fairytale country of Switzerland and have participated in a walking tour of the southwest shore of England through the Cornwall district. All of my trips and experiences will remain forever etched as highlights in my adult life.
Yvonne has a real talent- she finds all the places of interest....nooks and crannies that are off the beaten path whilst ensuring the storied highlights are not missed. Her passion to research and organize are second to none. Her meticulous planning and attention to detail for one's safety, learning, and adventure are woven into each day and each activity.
You will have a trip you will remember forever.
