LA is calling our name.

LA in the springtime is all about sunny weather, swaying palm trees and miles and miles of dazzling coastline.

The area has so much to offer. Mixed in with iconic sites and Hollywood glamour, LA is home to some of the best museums in the country. And this spring there are several exhibits on display that are designed for textile enthusiasts just like us.

Two of the exhibits that are of particular note are LACMA’s “Power of Pattern: Central Asian Ikats from the David and Elizabeth Reisbord Collection” and the Fowler Museum’s “Dressed with Distinction: Garments from Ottoman Syria” also from the David and Elizabeth Reisbord Collection.

With these two exhibits playing a central role, we have created a 4 day, 3 night museum tour that takes in much of what LA has to offer. Included on the itinerary are private tours of the Getty Center, the Getty Villa, The FIDM Museum, LACMA, the Fowler Museum and the Craft in America Center – and a few other opportunities to round out the experience. Please click here to see the full itinerary.

If this sounds like a wonderful way to spend a long weekend in the spring, please consider joining us!
