News from New Member Valerie Hearder!

I'm excited about my tour to South Africa in April 2011. I've organized it with the help of Odette Tolksdorf, a well known South African textile artist who organizes tours for Nancy Crow. We've planned a truly exciting and unforgettable 15 days in South Africa - where I was born and grew up - and we'll visit places such as Soweto, to see Mandela's original home, a painted Ndebele village, visit a women's embroidery collective, stay in the Drakensberg to see Bushman cave paintings, visit exceptional craft galleries, museums and shops, stay in a traditional Zulu village, overnight in the oldest game preserve in Africa and experience the magic of night time game viewing. We'll leave KwaZulu Natal and fly to Cape Town where we'll ferry to Robben Island where Mandela was held for 23 years, see the stunning scenery of the Cape winelands and visit more craft collectives.
This is just a small sampling of what we'll do. Cost of the tour is $6350 excluding airfares.
