The site announces a textile/embroidery tour to Portugal – “tour will be to Lisbon, Portugal and Madeira Island, June 16 – 26, 2011”. The site has all the information about the tour. Go to Marie Yoland’s website and take a look. It looks great.
Marie Yoland, thank you so much for such nice idea.
May I give you a suggestion for 2012? A tour to north Portugal to see bobbin laces in Vila do Conde or Peniche, Guimaraes embroidery, Viana embroidery and Viana Custome Museum understanding the deep connection with the jewellery of that region (linking on side bar you can see beautiful pieces). You still can visit Miranda do Douro and find this beautiful textile work. Of course you can’t miss the beautiful and rich Castelo Branco silk embroidery!
Many other places to visit in Portugal , maybe for a 2013 tour? :)
