The Cornish Sewing Retreat October 2019

Sold Out


This isn't just any Sewing Retreat. This is a Sew Me Something Retreat set in the idyllic surroundings of Hendra Barns in the Cornish countryside, with extra time each day just for you to stretch, meditate or just try some yoga.

This is a chance to truly relax, enjoy yourself with friends while learning new skills and improving your sewing over three days and four nights.

This time we have very limited places. There are only 10 places available at our exclusive retreat. 


Thursday 17th to Monday 21st October 2019

Thursday Evening arrive at Hendra Barns, which is easy to find and just off the A30, in time for dinner.  Allowing you to get settled and unload your sewing machine, if you've chosen to bring it, and then start Friday fresh and ready to go. We might even squeeze in an evening walk or a bit of quiet contemplation before sampling the local brew.

Friday morning meet us after breakfast and we can help you plan your sewing weekend and work out what, if anything, you want to achieve. A bit of planning will help your weekend go smoothly. So whether it's making the perfectly fitting trousers, learning to put a concealed zip in or just having a go on an overlocker, we will be there to help you along the way while you sew at your own pace. Or maybe you just want a chance to catch up with some girl friends with a bit of sewing thrown in too.

We will be bringing a large part of the Sew Me something Haberdashery with us in case you need to stock up on any sewing necessities. But if you would prefer to pre-order any supplies we can make sure we bring them with us.

The sewing room will be open until 6pm, then it's time to wind down in a comfy sofa or maybe you'd prefer to join us for some relaxing meditative stretching to release any tension from the day with Amy our local yoga teacher.

Saturday morning after a delicious breakfast the sewing room will be open from 9am to 6pm. You will have full use of the studio all day with sewing and fitting demonstrations throughout the day whenever you find them useful. Lunch will be served in the main Barn and there will be plenty of tea coffee and cakes to keep you sewing all day. 

Again you can choose to use to join us in a bit of stretching and gentle yoga before dinner or just chill with a good book or have a walk and explore the grounds. 

Sunday Morning again the studio will be open after breakfast from 9am - 6pm. You can spend all morning continuing with sewing projects before lunch is served to us in the main Barn. Then we can help you wind up your sewing projects and provide you with any information you need to carry on any sewing processes at home. You can join us for the final session of stretching and gently yoga or again just chill before our final dinner together.

Monday Morning after breakfast it will be time so say our goodbyes and we can help you pack away your machines and sewing projects. Hopefully you will leave having accomplished more than you thought you could.  

I can guarantee you will learn new techniques, processes and increase your sewing skills on this weekend. As well as have fun making a whole host of new sewing friends to take away with you. 

We really look award to you joining us. 

There are different room options available so please look at the variants and select your room when booking.
