Residential retreats across the UK, ideal for sewers from beginner up to advanced intermediate level 

Have you ever wanted to have a go at a particular pattern, but been put off by a challenging element you’re not confident with?
Whether you’re thwarted by invisible zips or fitting sleeves, the purpose of these courses is to give each attendee an opportunity to learn skills that they personally find difficult, and have a go at some more adventurous sewing with the support of a skilled tutor.
A maximum group of 12 with 2 tutors allows plenty of one-to-one learning time during our weekend getaway, with comfy beds and delicious food and drink to keep us well oiled! Not only that, but you’ll be in the company of fellow sewing enthusiasts over a weekend dedicated to all things sewing, dressmaking and upcycling clothing.
