Even though the May retreat at my home in Spain seems a long way away, I need to post a reminder that the closing date for bookings is coming up fast – 21st March. There are only 6 places available for this hand stitching special – comfortable surroundings, warm weather, blue skies, home cooked food, local wines and fully kitted projects. Add in a generous dash of guided stitching and tuition covering the main basics of hand stitching – English Paper Piecing, hand piecing, needleturn applique and hand quilting. Also a visit to an internationally-renowned embroidery museum. We think it’s a recipe for a perfect four days of relaxation and really hope you can join us.
Here’s a glimpse of the quilt that will be the source for some of the projects I’ll be teaching –
needleturn applique –
English Paper Piecing –
hand piecing – and possibly
hand quilting –
(colours and patterns will obviously vary, these images are illustrative only)
With just 6 guests we will be able to make the retreat a personalised and relaxing stitching experience – no deadlines, no pressure and no long requirements list of things to bring, just your own hand sewing kit – we provide everything else!
