India, A Textile and photography tour to remember.

Click for information

“In religion, India is the only millionaire……the one land that all men desire to see, and having seen once, by even a glimpse, would not give that glimpse for all the shows of all the rest of the globe combined.”


– Mark Twain (American Author, 1835-1910

This is an excerpt from my muses on the last trip.

“The morning comes around too fast. It seems such a short time since I laid my head on the pillow.  But as predicted by an unknown deity, the sun rises and gives promise to the day.

We will have had more fun that is legal and we are less than half way through our tour.How could you not get excited by this !!!

So I can finally share out newly designed   Indian Textile tour trip.    We also have an add on 7 day Nepalese trip  as well.

You will travel with a group of like minded people, and trust me we will take really good care of you.

Our accommodation is luxurious and the food is amazing the scenery is breathtaking in many ways and I with very professional and experienced guide, you will have a trip of a lifetime.

I’ve decided to share some of the things I’ve seen and done on my previous adventures.

Many of you will be fabricaholics and India is the place to buy fabrics that will take your breathe away.

I am in awe of the master artists of India. This piece is mine, embroidered by hand on the finest silk.

There are so many things for the Textile Artist  to buy.  We will visit an most amazing craft market in Delhi and Craft Villages in other cities. We will also get the opportunity to visit a  puppet maker working in the slums to make amazing puppets like this. Other members of our group visited the artisan recently and is still talking about the experience.

Some of the faces of India. Street Photography.

  1. Another post that’s cracking my heart open — maybe for myself this time. I’d never heard of a textiles travel tour and I’m so moved by the depth of your appreciation for the textiles in other parts of the world. I absolutely love your quilt made from the textiles from India – I think that’s when my heart cracked! Your post seemed to tap into an unmined well within me — I’ve always been a sensitive soul and my soul cried with joy when it saw this post. The internet is a beautiful thing in this way… waking up something in me that I wasn’t sure even existed. I don’t have the financial means to do the kind of travel tour you write about, but maybe some day….. I also love the quote about India. Thank you so much for writing. A.
