Hoffman International Tour

Seeing the Pink Sand Beach Designs purses at the Holiday dinner made with the new Hoffman fabrics reminded me of how much I enjoyed touring the Hoffman factory a few years ago. Factory tours have always fascinated me because I get to see “behind the scenes” and learn how & why a product is created the way it is. I now understand how to identify the quality fabrics, and (Hoffman folks were right) it’s easy to spot the Hoffman on the shelf!

Thinking about the factory tour further reminds me that the Traveling Quilters has a Hoffman International Tour and Quilt Shop Hopping trip scheduled for September 2011. I bring this to the attention of anyone who has not had the privilege of touring their facility, and those who would like to go again! As the Traveling Quilters’ site mentions, you will see the design and manufacturing process up-close. The day trip also includes a visit to two Orange County quilt shops.

OK. I’ve talked myself into it. I’ll contact Sue and hope you will too!
