Imagine this: You wake up in Italy with a full itinerary that you didn’t have to plan yourself.
After getting dressed, you have breakfast with other sewists, discuss the plan for the day and get on a bus to travel and see the sights.
Your day is full of sewing-related activities, like touring a thread factory and leather studio, with plenty of shopping, eating and socializing along the way. You make new friends and visit new places all with a tour guide who speaks the language.
This is what happens when you sign up for the BurdaStyle Italy tour through Craftours! Plus, BurdaStyle editor Meg Healy and yours truly, Sew News editor Ellen March, get to come along, too. Meg and I are planning some extra activities for the bus rides as we travel to and from each destination. And we can’t wait to get to know you!
If you’ve ever wanted to travel to Europe but have been scared at the prospect of not knowing the language, not being able to navigate from city to city, or if something else has been holding you back–this is the tour for you.
I can’t wait to get a leather bag (and maybe some shoes) in Florence. The quality is astounding, plus the prices are super affordable. And then there’s the cooking lesson at a vineyard! We will be making our own pasta and drinking wine while we do it. (I’m allergic to wine, but I’ve been assured it’s still fun!) Not to mention the fabric shopping…
I hope you’ll come along!
