Hello Voyager Textile Tours & Workshops
We believe that design is a window into the heart of a culture. Textiles, architecture, art, food – these make up the fabric of a community. Join a Hello Voyager textile tour and come with us on a journey to explore the world through art, craft, and design.

This workshop is sold out. Please contact us to be added to the waitlist. Join Jacquie Gering in Kansas City to explore the idea of space in quilt design. With Jacquie’s guidance students will explore figure/ground relationships and learn to use shape to create intriguing interplay between positive and negative space in abstract quilt designs.

It's all about the experience. We take great care in creating an atmosphere of enthusiasm and inspiration through our carefully curated itineraries. We search out the best off-the-beaten path artists, museums and restaurants. Traveling is our favorite thing to do and we want to share our favorite places with you.
Betsy Blodgett will be joining the tour as your guide to all things design. Her interest in textiles led to a career in the sewing industry – initially as a fabric store owner and more recently with the pattern companies Indygo Junction and The Sewing Workshop. However, she always wanted to combine her love of design with her love of travel, thus Hello Voyager was born. When not working with fabric or planning design tours, she travels with her husband, interviewing artists and designers for their podcast, Hello Atelier.
Hello Voyager is delighted to collaborate with Lisa Ball Travel Design on our textile tours! Lisa Ball believes everyone should have the opportunity to travel. With that in mind, she turned what was a side hobby of developing church tours into her full-time passion. Lisa’s commitment to making travel affordable for everyone has seen her lead tours around the world. From England to the Amalfi Coast and all the way back to Kansas City, Lisa has made many travel dreams come true.
