We’re excited to share the news that Textile Travel will be introducing a new concept in group touring for fiber lovers.

Beginning in September,  2010, we will host our inaugural FiberCulture program in London, England. Participants can sample from the broad palette of textile resources in one of the world’s most dynamic cities, while taking advantage of the many theatres, museums, exhibitions and shopping opportunities available in London.

For a period of weeks, Textile Travel will host fiber lovers in a convenient hotel or a chic, centrally-located London apartment.  Come when you can, stay as long as you like (subject to availability).  High-quality, professional travel and concierge services are augmented by our deep knowledge of the London cultural landscape, and our love of all things fibrous.

Each morning, our experienced staff will be on hand to brief you over continental breakfast, on the many options you can choose from that day:  These could be:
  • A fiber event at a large venue
  • Knitting circle in a local yarn shop or pub
  • Visit to an exhibition at the Victoria & Albert Museum
  • Day trip to the greenhouses at Kew Gardens
  • Walk through Hyde Park with tea at Kensington Gardens
  • Visit to Portobello Road, Petticoat Lane or other London outdoor market
Without adhering to a rigid itinerary, alone or with friends,  you can relax among a companionable group of fellow travelers with lots in common – notably an independent streak.  In the evenings,  we will offer options for dining out and theatre forays, or you can sit and knit in front of the telly with some take-out and a bottle of Beaujolais.
Details are forthcoming – we are in the planning stage but will have some definite dates for September/October ready soon.
