Travel on the Grand British Textile Tour with sisters Betsy Blodgett and Emily Blodgett-Panos!

Betsy Blodgett dreamed up the Grand British Textile Tour as an opportunity to combine her two favorite things—fabric and England. Betsy has spent her career in the sewing industry: first as a fabric store owner in Kansas City (in partnership with her sister) then with pattern companies Indygo Junction and The Sewing Workshop.

Emily Blodgett-Panos is a jeweler and fiber artist. She was the guiding hand behind the yarn department at bon bon atelier, the store she founded with Betsy. Throughout her life, she has designed jewelry working with silver, enamel and fiber. She also works with The City Girl Farm, where she knits, felts, sews, and embroiders handmade chicken footstools.
