“I don’t know how you managed it, but I thought it was just an amazing trip and I feel very, very lucky I got a chance to be part of it. ”

” It was honestly one of the best trips I’ve ever taken and I wouldn’t hesitate to book another tour with you! ”

“Fabulous trip. One of the most magical places I’ve ever been. Gudrun and MaryJane did a fantastic job!”

“This trip was the first time I had ever traveled internationally on my own and I had a wonderful time. Thanks so much for all your efforts in making the trip wonderful!”

“I was fully satisfied with the experience. Even more than that. At this point of my life I have so many places to see yet and there aren’t many I want to visit again. But I’m going back to Shetland. Yes I am!”

“I assess the true value of a trip by how long it lingers on and informs me after the trip is over. Since my return, there hasn’t been a day that I haven’t thought about and want to return to the great experiences I was able to enjoy through Gudrun and Mary Jane’s Wool Week Shetland Islands Trip.

” I thought there was a good mix of workshops and sightseeing; the latter really stuck with me more than I might have expected.”

“Thank you so much for organizing a great trip to an amazing little corner of the world! I loved being in a place where yarn, knitting and textile design are such an integral part of everyday life. Getting to share the experience with others who are as enthusiastic about this whole knitting thing as I am made it even more exciting.”

“Our trip to the Shetlands was singular, transformative, and ineffable. Go.”

“There are places in the world that I hold near and dear to my heart. Shetland is one of those places. Thank you so very much for taking the time and effort to coordinate this trip
