The Sewing Retreat August 2019
This must be our Ultimate Sewing Workshop. Three days of sewing heaven in a fully equipped studio with gourmet meals and luxury accommodation - what more could you ask for.
This is a chance to truly relax, enjoy yourself with friends while learning new skills and improving your sewing.
This time we have limited places, responding to your feedback, so there are only 12 places available.
Thursday 8th to Sunday 11th August 2019
Thursday Evening arrive at the Crowne Plaza Hotel on the banks of the River Avon in Stratford upon Avon at whatever time suits you. 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. You can choose to book dinner at the hotel independently, or perhaps explore Stratford upon Avon.
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.
After lunch we might even fit in a trip to the Sew Me Something Studio if you need to stock up on any sewing necessities.
The sewing room will be open until 6pm, then it's time to wind down in the Bar or maybe you'd prefer to use the hotel swimming pool, or even book a spa treatment before dinner?
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 restaurant again and there will be plenty of tea coffee and cakes to keep you sewing all day.
Again you can choose to use the hotel facilities 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. You can spend all morning continuing with sewing projects before lunch is served in the restaurant. 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. They'll be time for a final cuppa before we say goodbye at 4pm.
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.
