Participant Feedback

The knitting tour was absolutely wonderful. I had such a great time. Jane was a wonderful tour guide. Her love of her country comes shining through when she told us of the history and current events. I plan on taking the Northern Ireland Knitting tour in the future.

Maureen Brooks

Thank you for following up with me! The trip was truly wonderful. Our tour guide, Mary, was outstanding and the bus driver did a really fantastic job on some difficult roads. There were some miscommunications about transportation to and from the airport for us (Kevin and Kristin), but those were resolved pretty quickly. This trip makes me want to try one of your knitting retreats now!

Kristin Dillman Jones

It was a good trip. Mary Lavery and Billy (our driver) were wonderful, and made the trip quite special for all of us. We felt like we were in good hands.

The workshops were good, especially the one with Carol Feller. I’ve done a lot of cable knitting, and she was the one I learned the most from.

Catherine Gjerdingen

We had a great time. Mary, the guide, and Bert, the driver, were the BEST! I loved every place we went and hope to be able to return some day to some of the places, especially Inis Mor and the other islands. I, for one, went to see the landscape in the parts of Ireland that I hadn't yet seen. I'm sure that other prospective participants feel the same.

Susan Schoenbach

I had an absolutely wonderful time on the knitting tour! Such wonderful people and places and events! The workshops were great and our hotels were wonderful. Fiona and Kenny were fabulous. Some of our group have asked if there is an email we could have for Fiona - respecting her privacy, is there a work email that she uses.

Already thinking about my next tour :)

Cathy Seguin

Thank you Tina. It was a fabulous trip. I have done both knitting tours. I believe Donegal was my favorite but I loved both tours.

Monica Gottfried

We had such a wonderful time! Every person welcomed us and made us feel so special. Our tour guide, Mary, and coach driver, Bert, took exceptional care and made each event unforgettable. I loved all of the instructors and learned so much. It was the trip of a lifetime.

Lani Armelin

The tour was so amazing for me and I know, that was not the last time I was in Ireland. I love the people and the country so much. I think about my next tour with my friend next year. I will surprise him with this tour.
