Trip cancellation insurance and health insurance are strongly advised, so that you will be protected if you find it necessary to cancel the tour or return home early. We will mail you an insurance brochure so you can be informed.

We cannot be held responsible for changes in the itinerary that result from actions taken by our suppliers, the weather or world conditions. In good faith we will make the best possible alternative plans.

Tour details are subject to change based on size and energy of the group, as well as new exhibits and ideas coming to light.


Our objective is to provide travelers with opportunities to discover and take home creative ideas for their future artistic endeavers. We have planned the itinerary to include textile, artistic, cultural and sightseeing activities, which will interest all travelers. Except for days when we change hotels, you are always free to absent yourself from the group and plan your own day.

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.

Please note: Due to limited capacity on the coach, there is a limit of one suitcase per passenger, plus one small piece of hand luggage, which might be stored inside the coach. When offered by the hotels, porterage for your single larger piece of luggage is included. Luggage (one checked bag and one carry-on bag) and "packing light" will be discussed in our newsletters.

You must be able to keep up with the pace of the group. Participants must be in good physical health to participate in this moderately strenuous tour. There will be much walking, both in London and at the gardens. In London we will be using public transportation and on our feet all day long. You must be able to keep up with the moderately strenuous pace of the tour. Please check with your doctor if you have specific health concerns, and contact Jeanne if you would like further information regarding the pace of the excursion.

Starting in March, you will receive monthly electronic newsletters, filled with descriptions of the cities, towns and villages, as well as museums, monuments and places of interest on our itinerary. Included will be suggestions for packing and pre-trip reading. Before the tour begins, the group will be invited to meet in Pacific Grove for an introduction to us and each other, and for an overview of the tour's destinations and activities. This is a chance to have your questions answered and to share your ideas and specific interests. Jeanne is always available to chat by phone, 831-647-8973, or email to answer your questions. (P.S. I do not text.)

Friends and family members are welcome. We will not be sewing or participating in any quilting workshops. On this tour, matching up those who would like a roommate may not be possible. Please consider coming with a roommate or taking a single room (with a single supplement).

As you experience Irish culture, there will be time to browse in the shops, discover a treasure, find the right moment for a photo, make a sketch, meet the locals and spend time with other travelers on the tour. A myriad of new ideas and adventures will be yours to take home.

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