Come and indulge yourself in a fabricky, fun filled sewing adventure! Join us for a wonderful sewing retreat away from it all. Imagine....you, 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 most 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 went to college in Bath to study Fashion and Textiles before running my own business designing and making wedding dresses. I love to teach, inspire, create and to see others become infused with that same passion.
The luxurious accommodation at The Shippon comprises of 5 double, 3 twin and 2 single bedrooms with either an en suite or private bathroom, as well as a lbeautiful sitting room with a cosy log fire and comfy sofas to sink into with a glass of something lovely...! The kitchen is well equipped with everything needed to enable the cooks to produce magnificent 3 course feasts which we can all enjoy around the big table. The icing on the cake and adding a touch of luxury and pampering,....there are two large hot tubs on the decking outside with more gorgeous views of the river and surrounding countryside!!
As a special treat for our retreat we will also be welcoming a lady who specialises in helping women to discover the colours and styles that enhance them the most. She will be giving us an interactive talk to encourage us all to start to think about our own colour and style analysis...starting us off on a new journey where we have more confidence not only in ourselves but also in our fabric and pattern choices...no more costly mistakes!
So looking forward to laughing, chatting, making connections, eating cake and sewing with you.
Love Yvonne xx
