The trip is open to anyone who loves quilts and textile art and wants to experience the Italian culture. You should be interested in sewing/creating with fabric as we will be having three classes with Italian big-name quilters and textile artists. The studio space where we will have those lessons is the meeting place for Ad Maiora, an association of amazing women who sew but above all support each others' activities and ideas.

The trip starts in Verona and so if you are from another country besides Canada (where I am writing from) you are welcome to join us and meet us there. The trip will be facilitated in english.

There will be a meeting in Toronto in November. All the details of the trip will be discussed. Also attending will be past travellers. It will be a good time for you to ask questions and see their photo albums from 2010. If you want to be notified of this meeting please email me.
