  1. A friend just forwarded me your site! I am an American starting a business working with artisans. My first line of textile products will include Kalotaszeg irasos, written embroidery. After spending several days exploring the area around Huedin I’m now in Maramures. I will go down to Sighisoara and Targu Mures before heading back to Budapest on the 28th. I would love to meet with you if possible before I leave. I’m very excited about what you’re doing!
