Donna is half Lithuanian and her heritage has brought her to the country of Lithuania several times. Over the past ten years, she has traveled to the country almost every year, rented an apartment in Lithuania for a few months, and even attended the language course at Vilnius University. It’s like a second home. Knitting is a plus. The country and it’s festivals are amazing and are always filled with some sort of textiles. You just want to take it all home.
Now she wants to show everyone first hand the amazing textiles in Lithuania & not by just writing a book about it. Now you can see for yourself.
Lithuania is a modern country with modern roads just like in the U.S. All the conveniences are available. Most people speak english. It will remind you of the state of Pennsylvania. It’s land, buildings, numerous lakes, cathedrals, etc
