Organised by the Spanish Patchwork Association, the Madrid Patchwork Festival first took place in 2018, following on from the success of their ever-popular International Patchwork Festival held in March each year in Sitges. Over 80 retailers and patchwork professionals exhibit at the event, and we’ll spend a full day here.
We’ll make the most of our stay in Madrid with included guided tours of the city, along with visits to its Garment Museum and Royal Tapestry Factory. Toledo located just 45 miles southwest of Madrid, renowned for its traditional crafts and a UNESCO World Heritage Site makes an ideal day trip. We’ll also enjoy two half day hand sewing workshops with our accompanying textile expert, Mandy Shaw.
