Travel to Assisi, birthplace of St Francis, for an indulgent week’s quilting at a top-class hotel. Offering the perfect combination of exclusive sessions with Karin within a friendly group, and the chance to explore this stunning medieval hill-top town, this trip is a real treat.
With eight quilting sessions in total, you’ll have plenty of time to improve your technique and make new friends. Taking the designs on the pillars in the basilica as inspiration, Karin will teach a pieced patchwork project worked in diagonal rows that can be made up into a table runner or larger piece.
Then there’s Assisi itself to explore. Small and easy to get around on foot, this iconic town harbours a horde of treasures from the famous multi-level basilica with the tomb of the saint, to the Rocca Maggiore fort and busy Piazza del Comune – all waiting to be discovered.
