Handwork by the Light of Day

This is a photo of some women in Garganta la Olla, Caceres, Spain. They sit outside their homes and do hand work by the light of day. Many times there are large groups of these women and sometimes they are all working on a piece of the same project. This woman is crocheting lace edging.

Textiles in Spain

I want to gather what I have learned about historic textiles of Spain. I will post photos of needlework examples and of the places where these works are found.
