About the Course
We'd like to invite you to join us for our first embroidery retreat on the beautiful island of Madeira. Spend an incredible week at the 4-star Hotel Baia Azul on a bed and breakfast basis with a welcome dinner in the hotel and farewell dinner in a traditional folklore restaurant.
Expand your embroidery skills with 3 full day and 1 half day workshop with expert, Helen McCook, and enjoy the company of your fellow crafters as you explore the island and capital city of Funchal on two included excursions - one of which features a visit to the renown local embroidery museum and factory. An experienced tour manager will be on hand to ensure all goes well and you make the most of your break.
