Fiber Arts Tour

bobshome's picture

This is so exciting - I've booked myself a PERU TEXTILE AND ALPACA TOUR. This July, a two week tour of textiles, textile museums and alpaca ranches. A little Machu Picchu on the side. I'm going with a good friend who has an Alpaca farm here in Québec. Stay tuned for the picture history of each fiber I see.
Have any of you done this trip?

I have a strong back and would make an excellent porter. You could even address me as "boy" if you like. :-)

I went in January about 13 years ago...couldn't find any fabric or yarn...plenty of tourist crafts...and one very expensive craft shop in a posh hotel...with a sweater I coveted...but which was so heavy I couldn't have worn it anywhere but Alaska...I did buy some woven things from a street peddler...ancient lady with beautiful things...
LOVED Machu Pichu...serene and beautiful! ...and the train ride to get there ...along a rushing river was spectacular. Surprisingly, although we were warned to not eat fresh vegetables and fruit...the hotels had wonderful and safe veggies and fruit...and the most fabulous avocados I've ever tasted!!!
I'd LOVE to take a fabric tour!! I'm sure you'll have a wonderful time!!!
