All workshops will be taught by Jo, Lynne and Karen. We will be offering a choice of classes using a range of techniques and to suit all skill levels. There will be organised swaps to add to the pre-event excitement and to help us get to know each other better during the weekend.

There is a bar at the venue and we will be organising some fun evening activities. However there will also be plenty of space and time for those who would like some quiet, focused sewing or relaxing. We’re also planning to host a pop-up shop by one of the leading UK stores for some or all of the weekend!  Our first retreat will offer camaraderie, learning new skills, and time for yourself, with an emphasis on friendliness and fun. We do hope you will be able to join us!
