About the Course

With the virus crisis we cannot be 100% that our October 2020 retreats are going ahead but at the moment we are happy that March 2021 will be, if you are interested, do drop us an email and we will add you to the list.
Our retreats give you a few days to learn some new skills and focus solely on sewing. We have sole hire of the YHA which is a unique place to stay, we love listening to the tidal estuary and enjoying the underfloor heating. This is not a luxurious hotel but it is clean, warm, surprisingly spacey and very calm and comfortable..everyone can relax and simply enjoying spending time sewing with like minded folk.
We have a full day of the wonderful AbbieAnne learning how to create the most delightful piece of "Pile and Plunder" textile art.
We have a very comfortable communal area where we will probably hang out with our hand sewing and cups of tea and read some sewing books or have a tipple in the evening or just chat about things we have made or are going to make. This is not a formal, strictly structured weekend, we will be organising other sewing related activities but they are very optional, there will be plenty of free sewing time so you can bring any works in progress you may want to finally finish without any responsibilities.

Julie will be available to help throughout your weekend if there is something you have been struggling with or want some support with. Julie has been sewing for nearly 30 years and runs Sidmouth Fabrics and Haberdashery where she also teaches dressmaking and other workshops. She has experience with all different types of sewing machines and is amazing at explaining even the most complex of sewing techniques.
The food provided is all homemade and is sourced locally wherever possible.
