This is your chance to see world-class quilts, create your very own ‘stipwerk’ book wrap with life-long quilter Herma de Ruiter, and enjoy a private guided tour of the Museum Pakhuis Koophandel, home to a fascinating textile gallery.

ECT Travel have organised this escorted tour to the wonderful Quilt Festival Noord Groningen in The Netherlands. It all takes place between Thursday 8th – Sunday 11th June 2023

Textile artist, Hilde van Schaardenburg, had this to say about the tour: “There are so many things to love about this tour! The Quilt Festival itself attracts such a variety of artists and there are so many different quilts to see, from traditional to art and experimental quilts. And then there’s the location. North Groningen borders the Waddenzee, which is a UNESCO world heritage site. It is an area of wide open, flat landscapes with the horizon broken by villages clustered around medieval churches that are worth a visit in themselves. And Groningen is an incredibly vibrant, cultured city

Fly from London Heathrow, Birmingham, Bristol, Norwich or Manchester. Or make your own way there and meet them in Amsterdam
