I saw felted hats being made for the Whirling Dervishes and saw a felt maker cleverly use a whisk broom to apply water to the felt. I saw village women using thin silk thread and tiny needles to crochet the edges of scarves with darling flower patterns and designs.
I am still reeling with such good feeling and warmth from all that was given to me on this adventure. Thank you Turkey.
