Crafts in Madeira

Standard

On my recent trip to Madeira, Portugal I was intrigued to see beautiful samples of the lace and embroidery worked locally.

The work is very fine and mostly done by hand. The cheaper items such as tea towels and cheaper cloths are machine made. It was lovely to see the demonstrations at the Spring flower festival. I didn’t buy any on this occasion as I have so much linen I could ( in fact might!) open my own shop.
