Jeanne Mills

Suzanne Cox

Since 1995 Jeanne Mills has been organizing and leading textile tours, visiting places that quilters, textile buffs, inveterate travelers and those looking for inspiration will enjoy. A true Francophile, Jeanne is an experienced European traveler, who has spent many years living and traveling in France. She is past president of the Monterey Peninsula Quilters Guild and currently a member of its Program Committee. Jeanne works part time at Back Porch Fabrics quilt shop in Pacific Grove.

Francophile, quilter, inveterate traveler and travel agent, Suzanne Cox, for 30 years, has been a partner in Empty Spools Quilting Seminars since its founding 28 years ago. As you probably know Empty Spools Seminars brings nationally and internationally- known quilt teachers to Asilomar Conference Grounds in Pacific Grove each spring.

Jeanne Mills Tours is not affiliated with any tour group. The itinerary and visits have been chosen for our 20th group tour with the advice and suggestions of Suzanne Cox of Kenwood Travel in California, Globeo Travel in Paris, and local French Tourist Offices, coach companies and guide services, all of which provide logistical support. We reserve the right to make changes in the daily activities according to the needs and energy level of the group, the weather and new museum exhibits, ideas, suggestions and information coming to our attention between now and the start of the tour.

The objective is to provide travelers with an opportunity to discover creative ideas for future artistic endeavors. The daily activities are chosen to provide inspirational opportunities. As you experience French culture, visit museums and monuments, meet people, take photos and record memories, a myriad of new ideas and adventures will be yours to take home.

In 2013, this excursion for adventurous travelers offers an opportunity to see regions of France less often visited by American tourists. Join like-minded travelers and be inspired in the south of France.

For a fabulous journey and memories to last a lifetime, come, travel with us!
