"Amsterdam, with its arched canals and unique roofline is a city like no other."
"It has the energy and hustle of New York, but with a certain “old world” fairytale quality. Tall and slender, with infinite windows, its waterfront homes and businesses are a study in geometric shapes."
"That is why, when I saw this fabric featuring those very homes, I knew I had to have it. With bolt in arms, we headed back toward the Metro, but couldn’t leave without first buying a freshly made stroopwafel, warm with sticky melting caramel. Checking the fabric and stroopwafel off my bucket list we boarded the tram!" —Traveler Cathy Hoodak

Now an adult, she returned to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to find her childhood home.
Armed with a handful of memories and unwavering determination, she set out on her quest.
