Sew Relaxing Weekend Retreat May 2018

The Sew Relaxing weekend sewing retreat

12th and 13th May 2018 

The weekend will take place on the 12th and 13th May at the lovely 4 star East Sussex National Hotel, situated just outside Uckfield on the A22.

Our sewing weekend retreat is for those who would enjoy the opportunity to have two days of uninterrupted sewing activity with chat, laughter and plenty of tea. It is a chance to get away from it, complete a project or two (or maybe finish a small stash of part done projects) pick up some great tips and relax in the facilities and surroundings of a 4 star hotel. All are welcome whether you are a dressmaker, quilter or patchworker, you just need to be sewing!

This is a relaxed weekend, with no packed schedules. You will be working on your own projects - starting new ones or finishing WIP's. During the course of the weekend you will be able to pick up top tips in our helpful 'how to' sessions and take part in our two optional workshops; freemotion embroidery & how to make a kimono style jacket for the summer. It is entirely up to you how much you do, we're not going to be bossy.

Our dedicated Sewing Room is large, light and airy. Everyone will have their own personal sewing space, power and access to numerous irons. It is recommended that you bring your own machine and sewing kit to the weekend although it is possible to book one of our machines and we will have a supply of essential equipment in case of forgotten items.
