It’s that time of year again to begin thinking about the holidays–and this year perhaps it’s time to give yourself a present. The American Sewing Guild is offering the Sew Much Fun Hong Kong tour November 30-December 8, 2010. It’s a time that this wonderful city is dressed up for the Christmas holiday, awash in twinkling lights and Asian decor. It’s also a time for special sales on everything the stores have to offer.
The tour departs from San Francisco for the overnight journey across the International Date Line. Get acquainted with the city via a sightseeing tour, and then hit the garment district and other local fabric haunts. As a special treat, there’s a behind-the-scenes visit to a costume shop that makes attire for Disney, as well as the Chinese Opera. If you’re sew inclined, you can also visit mainland China and Lantau Island.
I’ve been to Hong Kong with 16 tour groups, and it still is my favorite city in the world. Cashmere for $5 a yard, silks for $4 and an unrivaled selection of most anything you can imagine.
