VIETNAM - March 2018

Wonderful trip all up! Unforgettable! Thank you so much for your part, including being the instigator of the whole trip for us. Without your expertise and 'above and beyond' caring it would not have been as marvelous. Keep doing what you do so well. Anne Edwards (VIC)

*** Such an enjoyable textile tour to Bali. I had a really great time and when I went through all the fabrics I bought I was quite thrilled. I wound up taking home 7 kgs more than I left with, which for me, who is not really a shopper, was remarkable! Anita Atkins (TAS)

NORTHERN INDIA - November 2016

I have never seen so many fabric stores in one week in my life before! It was like being in heaven, I imagine! I loved it all and we have so many stories to tell others as well. The other highlight was meeting all the other ladies who attended. What an amazing group of wonderful women! I gained inspiration from each of them. Cheryl Dunn (Scotts Head NSW)

*** Well done Sue on another great trip. I throughly enjoyed it & I know you put a lot of work into it to make it enjoyable for every one. Its hard to get back to normal life again like cooking, cleaning & going to work etc. But the hardest thing is trying to work out what I am going to sew first! Claire Viscone (Adelaide SA)

*** I want to thank you for an amazing two weeks. You managed to put together a schedule that covered all areas of interest, sewing aside. From the Portland Symphony Orchestra (which for me was a real highlight) to lunch at Timberline Lodge, the entire tour took my breath away. I can only stand in awe at the way you find the 'extra-ordinary' to make the whole a wonderful experience. Thanks again for what will live in my memory for a long time. Shirley Wood (VIC)

*** Thanks heaps for the last couple of weeks. I had heaps of fun. The activities, accommodation and food were great. Marie Jenkins (NSW)

CAMBODIA/VIETNAM TOUR - October 2011

***Thanks Sue for organising a fabulous holiday. We enjoyed every minute of our trip to Cambodia and Vietnam. We loved the history, the scenery, the culture and the food. The cruise along the Mekong River was a highlight and we have not ever experienced such wonderful service. The arrangements were seamless and we did not have to worry about anything other than relaxing, enjoying ourselves and taking in the whole experience. This was my third trip with Sew Inspirational Events and I would book a tour again without hesitation. I have already recommended the Cambodia Vietnam trip to friends and family so hopefully they will have a chance to experience these wonderful countries. Ann-Maree Kelly (NSW)

NORTH-WEST USA TOUR - February/March 2012

***Thanks so much for a brilliant couple of weeks. The time flew becuase I was having so much fun and I didn't have to worry about a thing. I now have beautiful fabrics to add to my stash, some new tricks to try and new friends within the Australian Sewing Guild. I will have happy lasting memories of this trip. I really appreciated your thoughtfuness, planning and joie de vie. Deb Atkins (NSW)
