The Carlisle Sewing Retreat

This Retreat is all about Couture. 

Couture sewing takes time and patience.  Much of the construction is done by hand often because the fabrics are tricky and there could be complicated design details. Since spending time with Claire Shaeffer, who is an internationally respected author, lecuturer and columnist and has a collection of over 2000 couture garments many of which are Chanel,  I have been inspired to do more couture sewing and share some of these skills. 

I will be creating a lovely sewing space at the Hotel and teaching Sewing Techniques perfect for creating a Chanel Style Cardigan Jacket, Couture Skirt or Dress

The price will include 4 nights accommodation in a 4 star Hotel, breakfast, lunch and a three course dinner each day, 1 day making a toille and planning a couture garment, 1 day out including a visit to Linton Tweeds and 1 day practising couture techniques for your garment so that you can return home confident in how to finish.

We are excitied that Mrs Walker from Linton Tweeds will be giving us a talk about the company's facinating history when we visit the store.


The cost of The Carlisle Sewing Retreat will be £895

Non-Residential £325
