Sitges Patchwork Festival and Barcelona Sewing Holiday with Mandy Shaw - March 2018

Sitges Patchwork Festival and Barcelona Sewing Holiday with Mandy Shaw - March 2018

Dates: 9 - 16 March 2018 - 7 nights bed and breakfast

Prices: from £1429 per person

Join tutor Mandy Shaw on this Catalonian crafting holiday centred around the Sitges Patchwork Festival. Enjoy 2 days at the festival and then experience the history and architectural highlights of Girona and Barcelona. We stay for two nights in Barcelona and a guided tour of the magnificent Sagrada Familia, perhaps Gaudi’s most famous architectural creation, will be a highlight of this crafting holiday. We have also arranged 2 included workshops with Mandy during our stay in Girona making this the perfect combination of sewing and sightseeing in the sun.


For over a decade now, the town of Sitges has been hosting the International Patchwork Festival, the biggest textile art fair in Spain. Organised by the Town Council, the Tourist Promotion Agency of Sitges and the Spanish Patchwork Association (AEP), the event brings together national and international exhibitions dedicated to patchwork, thematic courses, workshops for children and a big fair of around 100 stands devoted to the art of patchwork. Sitges Patchwork Festival has become an international reference event in the area of textile art, and counts more than 15,000 visitors throughout the four days it lasts.
