I know many of you share my love of travel, silk, fabrics, craft cooking and eating! This might interest some of you .....
Yesterday, my lovely customer Narelle from www.2worldtours.com.au came to see me to collect some lanterns. We got talking, and I'm fascinated with what she does - I think she has the best job in the world! She organises and accompanies small group humanitarian and cultural tours to Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, India and Africa. These tours specialise in hands-on textile and craft classes, markets, silk embroidery, weaving and cooking with local villagers.
This has caught my eye - learning how to make the silk lanterns in Hoi An, Vietnam!!

The Textile Arts Festival is on this weekend 25-27 June at the Convention Centre. If you are in Brisbane and this interests you, pop in and see Narelle.
I think I'd like to spend some time in Cambodia or Laos as I haven't been there yet! Who wants to join me????
