Whether you’re new to embroidery or a seasoned stitcher, you’ll love Stitchtopia’s embroidery holidays. Showcasing historic and cultural influences, this ancient craft is practised all over the world, with origins dating back as far as man has been able to produce fabrics.

Embroidery is as portable as it is relaxing, and we’ve carefully selected the destinations for these holidays with this in mind. Where better to enjoy a retreat than in the warmer climes of some of Europe’s most beautiful islands, or a charming hotel nestled in the UK’s tranquil countryside.

Each holiday has a full programme of embroidery workshops led by Royal School of Needlework tutors. Under their expert guidance, you can master new stitches, glean tips on techniques, and hone existing skills to create your own beautiful work of art. Whichever holiday you choose, you will meet new friends, relax and enjoy your favourite past time, and be truly inspired.
