arena travel are pleased to announce that they have teamed up with rowan yarns to offer you a choice of knitting holidays led by two well known experts debbie abrahams and jane crowfoot - within these tours you will find a heady mix of trips to destinations as diverse as tuscany, the shetland islands and a memorable voyage north in norway - the northern lights holiday
the programme has been crafted to combine your passion for knitting with arena's passion for travel - each holiday is different, but the focus will always be on the enjoyment of your craft, the comfort of lovely accommodation, the inspiration acquired from visiting an exciting destination and the joy of sharing good food and wine in great company - to this arena have also added experts debbie and jane who will share their knowledge, inspire you and show you new techniques in a series of classes and talks and help you get the most out of your holiday
arena and rowan alike are very proud of their new programme and excited that at long last they are able to present it to you:
'as a recognised global hand knitting brand, rowan is now entering it's fourth decade - over the past 30 years our ethos has always been firmly focussed on inspiring and teaching crafters all over the world the joy of hand knitting
as a design led company, rowan produces two design collections each year - autumn/winter and spring/summer - we work closely with a network of designers who are both in-house and freelance; kaffe fassett, marie wallin and martin storey to name but a few - often we are asked where these designers get their inspiration from and most say it is their travel which inspires their use of pattern, colour and texture
working with the specialist tour operator arena and established rowan tutors, debbie abrahams and jane crowfoot, we are sure that these holidays will secure themselves as the leading craft tours both in the uk and abroad'
