I’ve just added a new Stitch Retreat weekend with Jan Beaney and Jean Littlejohn, at the Wyboston Lakes. It’s planned…
A fantastic experience. Venue was easy to access, hotel rooms and food couldn't be faulted, Staff all friendly and approachable, set round a beautiful courtyard garden. Nichola very welcoming and friendly, expert tuition from an excellent tutor - Anne Kelly. Conference rooms were spacious and ideal for workshop. The weekend started at 4pm on Friday, we learnt,planned,stitched,and reached our goals by 4pm on Sunday. Quite how we managed to fit in so much work in between Breakfast, morning coffee, Lunch,afternoon tea-break, and dinner was amazing. I could have stayed for a week! Thank you Nichola, what a fab Stitch Retreat.Marianne
We had a fantastic weekend. The facilities were brilliant, the staff at Wyboston Lakes could not have been more helpful or friendly and the rooms were large and very comfortable indeed. The food was also delicious. Anne was a lovely tutor, she was very professional but friendly and lovely and kept us motivated and working hard - pushing us just enough to get loads done but also still able to really enjoy the process. I was surprised at how much we achieved over the weekend. I would thoroughly recommend Stitch Retreats to everyone - very thoughtfully organised and a complete treat! Thank you Nichola.Michèle
A lovely friendly atmosphere, mood set and fostered by Anne and Nichola. It was fun making little stencils, almost cartoon pictures of birds, and assembling them to build up the collage. A good venue, good facilities in rooms and large social spaces, very good food, lots of choice.Maureen
Having organised many one day workshops in textiles and mixed media, I wanted to create a series of longer workshops for people who are passionate about stitching. Stitch Retreats will be organising weekend workshops throughout the year, and I'm looking at week long summer schools too. My main aim is to ensure that everyone attending has an enjoyable and relaxing experience. Whenever I've booked onto a workshop, I've always enjoyed the stitching, learning and creativity. The biggest headaches have been finding somewhere to stay, and places to eat! I have selected venues with fantastic facilities for stitching, lovely bedrooms and great food - all in one place. So when you book onto one of our workshops, you don't have to worry about anything. Stitch. Relax. Create!
