About the Course

Immerse yourself in textiles & patchwork in the heart of the beautiful Alsace! Flights and accommodation included.

Enjoy the company and expertise of Mandy Shaw on this 6-day holiday where the highlight promises to be the 25th Carrefour Europeen du Patchwork. Historical buildings, village halls and places of worship are turned into galleries exhibiting over 1,200 textile works of art in the four villages of Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines, Sainte Croix-aux-Mines, Liepvre and Rombach-le-Franc in the wonderful Val D'argent.

You'll stay in a characterful hotel 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.
