Who wants to go to Verona?

As you probably know I take a small group of quilters and textile artists to Verona, Italy, every two years in conjunction with the festival, Verona Tessile.

That trip is coming up in April and I still have a few spots left.

Who wants to go to Verona??

The famous Ponte Pietra is visible.

The trip begins at the Verona Airport so your departure place does not matter.

The dates are April 12 to 21, 2013.

Who wants to take classes with some top Italian teachers and artists? (all levels are welcome, even beginners!!)

Sewing together at Ad Maiora studios

Who wants to eat great food and participate in a cooking class?

Learning to make home-made pasta

Who wants to drink great wines and go to the Valpolicella for a wine and country tour?

  1. Sandra, you make this look so inviting. I would love to go to Verona with you - can not manage it this year. I hope that you will go again in two years - maybe then.

    1. I would love for you to join me! Because I am part of a fibre art/quilt community there I am able to introduce the travellers to a very TRUE italian experience through these friends. I am italian and speak the language. We do lots of stuff that tourists could never do. That's what makes this trip different from most trips that are on the market today. The 8 that came in 2011 are STILL talking about it! (much to chagrin of their family members LOL)

  2. I am one of the 8 that went last time. I truly amazing experience with Sandra who knows how to do it right! If you are hesitating, don't. You will have the time of your life, experience Verona with someone who can show you things that other tourists do not get to see or experience. A trip of a life time!! Sign up today before it's too late!!
