Textile Tours at Home: Elizabeth Keckley, Dapper Dan and more!
As the bitterly cold days drag on, I try to embrace the mindset of folks who live in harsh winters every year. In Denmark, they practice Hygge, which focuses on creating an atmosphere of coziness and conviviality. For me, that means gallons of hot tea, twinkling white lights, and lots of cat snuggling.
As progress builds in the fight against the pandemic, I'm feeling more confident that we'll be able to enjoy our scheduled textile tours this year. I'm looking forward to getting vaccinated and feeling safe to travel once again.
The Grand Swedish Textile Tour is on our radar for the fall – I'm sure the residents of Stockholm know a thing or two about getting through a harsh winter. Luckily, October should be a beautiful time to visit. Won't you join us?
In the meantime, while away the cold nights with some handpicked textile entertainment I've shared below.
Cheers, Betsy B.

Happy New Year, Voyagers!I hope everyone had a lovely holiday season and is feeling refreshed and excited about the new year. I want to say thanks to all of our voyagers who sent kind words about the newsletter and to those who have worked with us while we rescheduled our 2020 trips. We currently have the Grand British Textile Tour and the Grand Swedish Textile Tour schedule for this upcoming fall, and I have high hopes that we will be able to travel with you again soon. In the meantime, here is a list of textile-related fun found online. Watch, enjoy, and get inspired. Cheers, Betsy
