Sewing Retreat Devon

About the Course

Come and indulge yourself in a fabricky, fun filled sewing adventure! Join us for a wonderful sewing retreat away from it all., your sewing machine and sewing projects, great food, fantastic accommodation, making new friends, cosy conversations by the log fire, sewing mischief and a spot of pampering! What more could you want?

Nestled in the beautiful countryside of The South Hams in Devon, The Shippon, with it's far reaching views of the River Dart, is the perfect venue for our sewing retreat. The large sewing room provides ample space to set up our sewing machines for a long weekend of sewing to our hearts content!

The weekends will be hosted by me...Yvonne Temple. My passion has always been to sew...since the age of seven when my mum taught me how to make dresses for my dolls on her old Singer sewing machine there has been no stopping me..... I love to teach, inspire, create and to see others become infused with that same passion.

The accommodation at The Shippon comprises of 4/5 doubles, 3/4 twins and 2 single bedrooms with either an en suite or private bathroom, as well as a large sitting room with a cosy log fire and comfy sofas to sink into with a glass of something lovely...!, kitchen and large dining area and, to add a touch of luxury and pampering,....two large hot tubs on the decking outside with more gorgeous views of the river and surrounding countryside!!

So looking forward to laughing, chatting, making connections, eating cake and sewing with you.
Just bring your PJ's, sewing machine, sewing project and drinks of your choice and lets get snuggled in for a long weekend of stitchy therapy!
Love Yvonne xxx
