Created for Crocheters

Uniquely crafted for lovers of crochet, this Stitchtopia crochet holiday is the ideal opportunity to meet like-minded crafters and indulge in your favourite hobby. Our talented crochet expert will be on hand throughout the holiday and host inspirational workshops with a beautifully designed project to spark your creativity.

Madeira Crochet Retreat

Spend a week with Lucy at the 4-star Baia Azul hotel located to the west of Funchal, the island's capital. Three and a half days of workshops will combine instruction on colour theory with the opportunity to create a Madeiran-garden inspired momento of your time together. A panoramic island tour, an easy levada walk, lunch at the home of one of the island residents and visits to Monte Palace Tropical Garden, the Botanic Garden and a Madeiran wine lodge will ensure that you’ll discover the scenic, cultural and culinary highlights too.

A message from our expert:

I'll be teaching some practical yarn-based colour theory using a bespoke Attic24 colour palette created especially for the retreat. Combining squares and stripes with pretty floral accents, we'll be making a beautiful lined tote bag; a colourful reminder of our visit to the gardens of Madeira.- Lucy
