Sewing Retreat

Sewing Retreat

Never have a chance to sew uninterrupted? This is the chance for you to complete that garment (or garments) with the help of an experienced tutor.

Maybe you are an experienced dressmaker but would like to obtain that “extra look” – then this is the class for you.

Come and enjoy a day of meeting other people who love sewing and sharing new ideas.

This one day class/workshop is not suitable for beginners or people who have never sewn before. Prior experience with garment/article construction is essential. You will also need to be able to thread and sew on your machine.
