Tour Leader: Lynn Koolish

Lynn Koolish is a fiber artist, teacher, and author from Berkeley, CA with over thirty years of experience in the quiltmaking industry.

This 13-day French tour showcases the textile heritage of Provence with visits to museums, specialty shops, and workshops along with two days at the European Patchwork Meeting, an international quilting event that features hundreds of quilts and vendors.

In Lyon, visit the Textile Museum and become immersed in 2,000 years of textile history. Then discover how the Soierie Vivante association preserves the city’s last two 19th-century textile facilities: the municipal trimming workshop and the municipal weaving workshop. In Avignon, the art of fabric printing in southern France is highlighted at the Souleiado Museum and the Olivades factory and outlet shop, where artisans build on generations of craftsmanship to produce goods for today.
