Madeira Quilting Retreat


About the Course

Madeira Quilting Retreat
Join Janet Clare for a quilting retreat on the picturesque island of Madeira. Spend the week at the 4-star Baia Azul with breakfast and dinner included each day. Enjoy 3 full day and 1 half-day workshops with Janet and then explore the island on two included excursions, one of which features a visit and workshop at the renown local embroidery museum and factory.

Workshops with Janet Clare
Janet will start the week teaching her ‘drawing with your sewing machine’ and applique technique, during which you will learn all the skills needed to make one of her applique picture kits. You will then move on to a zipped pouch workshop which includes lots of different piecing, techniques and stitching to keep you busy for the rest of the week.
