Our Sewing Retreat October 5th-8th 2018
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?
Sew....for hours and hours!! We have a dedicated sewing room so you can leave your machine set up all weekend long...bliss!! This is a great opportunity to finally get round to those long awaited projects that you just haven't had the time for before. Or, you may want to use a fabric you're anxious about sewing or make up a pattern that's just a little out of your comfort zone...here is your opportunity to learn, grow in confidence and try new things.
Nestled in the beautiful countryside of The South Hams in Devon, The Shippon has wonderfully luxurious accommodation, far reaching views of the River Dart and is the most perfect venue for our sewing retreat. Stunning bedrooms each with an ensuite or private bathroom, a huge sitting room with a woodburner..perfect for those wintry evenings...and hot tubs on the decking...!Read more about the accommodation here.
The weekends will be hosted by me...Yvonne Temple and my mum...Rosemary Temple who will keep us supplied with delicious food all weekend long!! 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.
Colour and Style
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!
If you love a spot of pampering then look no further. Ali will be bringing with her some fantastic products from Temple Spa to give us a facial class and a spot of hand massage.
Cake is also a very important part of the weekend (!!). The wonderful Lisa from Boho Cakes will be bringing us a delicious treat for Sunday afternoon tea..all served on beautiful vintage china. Find a squishy sofa in the sitting room in front of the fire and be spoilt!
