Back from our travels


After several months we are back from our travels in Australasia and the Sewing Shed has opened its doors again.

Whilst away one of the many things we have visited is this weaving village in northern Laos. Here nearly every house has a big loom underneath their house on which the women make the most fantastic hand-woven textiles. Here are a few photo's to show you but more on that at a later stage.
