BPQ Program Thursday April 4
"The Textiles of Bali"
A vacation to Bali in 1999 changed my life! As I prepared to retire from policing I had no intention of starting a business. After meeting a talented batik factory owner in Bali, though, I realized his fabulous quality and designs needed to be shared with sewists in the US and Canada. For 12 years we designed batik together, which I sold through my business The Batik Butik. Many of my fabric customers asked me to share my knowledge, sources and connections in Bali, so in 2011 after selling The Batik Butik, Bali Fiber Tourswas born. As of 2018 I have led 17 tour groups to Bali!
