Back in 2012 Jim and I took a "gap year" and went to Indonesia the long way - overland across Central Asia, through China, Vietnam and Thailand. At each place we stopped on the way I bought a textile and this developed into my blog. I am still writing my blog whenever I travel and if you would like to read some of my Asia Textile Journey chapters, then have a look here. The latest ones are on Sumba ikat and Bangkok.
I gave a talk at the AGM of the Quilter's Guild last year and was asked to write it up as an article. It is in the Spring 2017 edition of the Quilter Magazine. You can have a read of it here
