About the Course

Join Pat Archibald and immerse yourself in textiles & patchwork in the heart of the beautiful Alsace! Now in its 26th year, the Carrefour Européen du Patchwork is a show with a difference. In the four villages of Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines, Sainte Croix-aux-Mines, Liepvre and Rombach-le-Franc in the wonderful Val d'Argent, historical buildings, village halls and places of worship are turned into galleries exhibiting over 1,200 textile works of art. We'll stay in the charming Old Town of Colmar whose cobblestoned streets and winding canals are lined with half-timbered medieval and renaissance buildings. Easily explored on foot, Colmar has a wealth of shops selling high quality goods and local produce, as well as first-class restaurants serving delicious Alsatian cuisine. In addition, Pat will host two half-day, hand-stitching workshops exclusively for Stitchtopia guests.
