I started this blog a week ago to figure out a way to reconcile my love of fabric with a nebulous career goal of making my own way in life and traveling abroad. My new and already dear friend Sam (theeater.tumblr.com) suggested Tumblr as my venue to come out of the fabricaholic closet and put feelers out there.
Since that conversation, I got an email from my wilderness tour guide friend I met in India. We started up a Google chat this morning, and I sent him a link to this blog.
He asked me if I’d be willing to do textile tours in India. There’s apparently a huge market for English speaking guides who specialize in fabric retail. He’d train me and set up all my work visa paperwork.
For those of you who know my beloved significant other, my guide friend knows an olympic archery instructor over there as well and he’d introduce us. Apparently archery has a pretty good team there. Who knew?
So it looks like we’re doing a scoping trip in 2011. WOW.
In the meantime, I have the European trip this fall that you know I’ll fabrick and post like crazy, and I’ll continue to fabrick the USofA as usual. Anyway, fingers crossed and stay tuned, ok!!!
