The Brighton Sewing Retreat - 27th March 2019 FULLY BOOKED

The Brighton Sewing Retreat March 2018

"5 star review from me! Claire's teaching was as brilliant as ever - she finds her way round awkward patterns, non standard figures and righting the odd student mistake without a raising an eyebrow or an intake of breath!!!! Additionally, the opportunity to bounce ideas (from internet security to french seams) off 17 other like minded ladies was quite inspirational. Such an informative masterclass on pressing, I am now making my multitude of pressing cloths (neatly) and hearing about the development of patterns for home dressmakers from Frances Tobin was so interesting. Non sewing activities were a great feature too - Freddy and his cocktails, shopping, taking the sea air, gym and spa facilities and sharing stories over delicious lunches, dinners and cakes - !!!! it would be hard to improve but knowing Claire I am guessing you'll have some new great ideas for next time - I'm in!!!!! " Wendy W

 It was so much fun we are doing it all again
