Retreat plans

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 MarchThere 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.

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!
