Sewing Retreat
Treat yourself to two days sewing without interruptions, no cooking, cleaning or laundry! 
Work on your own project at your own pace whatever your ability, start a new project or bring along that troublesome project you just can’t get quite right.
There will be help on hand from our two experienced tutors Catherine and Lorna. Lorna has a depth of knowledge in the sewing trade from designing to manufacturing and has been passing her skills on to her students for many years. Catherine is our resident overlocker queen, so if you are the owner of an overlocker but aren’t sure what to do with it here’s your opportunity!  
There will be demonstrations throughout the two days, so we’re sure you’ll pick up lots of hints and tips along the way!  

Throughout the two days you will have the opportunity to shop in our well stocked shop; 
Don’t we all need just an extra piece of fabric for our stash? 
Extra discounts in store will apply during the course.


Requirements:
You will be provided with a Husqvarna Viking sewing machine to use during the class.
But please note we cannot guarantee specific models.
If you want to use your own overlocker then bring it with you, along with the foot control, lead, accessories and instruction book.

If you are a Husqvarna owner please bring bobbins and any accessory feet you may have with you.  

Basic Sewing equipment to include:
Cutting out Scissors
Small paper scissors
Pins
Tape measure
Fabric Marker
Threads

Fabric:
If you already have a project in mind and have the fabric (and if required a pattern) then bring these with you. 
Or get out your unfinished projects and bring them along!  
If you don’t have a project in mind you can choose fabrics and patterns when you arrive, we stock all the pattern companies and the catalogues are in the shop for you to look at.
