October 2017 – Italy – Crocheting in Tuscany with Annie’s

Annie’s is teaming up with Lily Chin for a fabulous crocheted adventure in Italy. Craftours, the largest travel company for crafters in the world, is an expert at putting together vacations with the crafter in mind. Professional tour guides, team escorts, and first class accommodations are only the tip of the iceberg in how Craftours delivers consistently excellent crafting events. Master designers, such as Lily Chin, participate with the group and teach during the trip.

This tour package includes airfare from New York to Italy and first class hotel accommodations.  The event and daily activities will be based out of the same hotel for the entire time.  No re-packing! Daily excursions will be on a private deluxe motor coach.

Excursions in Italy

Explorations in the Tuscany valley will include sightseeing in Florence, San Gimignano, and Montecatini Terme.  When I visited Florence, I was captivated by the beautiful scenery and the bridges over the local river.  There is so much to do on this day trip. Shoppers will delight at the selection of current fashions and leather goods.  Historians can easily fill the day in the many museums and touches of medieval Europe throughout the city.


This trip includes a tour of an Italian yarn factory (and more shopping!) along with crochet seminars and time for project work.
