About the Course
An important event in the 2020 Dutch quilting calendar, the Noord Groningen Quilt Festival is just one of many highlights on this fabulous short break to the Netherlands. In the company of Karin Hellaby, you’ll enjoy two leisurely days exploring the Dutch countryside, visiting the towns and villages where quilts by local and international quilt artists are on display. Other textile experiences include visits to the ‘Dutch Costume Museum’ in Amsterdam, ‘The Other Museum from Oldtimer to Lace’ in Leeuworden, and ‘Den Haan & Wagenmakers’ quilt store in Amsterdam. You’ll also have the opportunity to hone your stitching skills during two fantastic full days of hand stitching workshops with Karin!
