*NEW* Overlocker masterclass and Wardrobe Cloning retreat

I am beyond excited to let you know about our fabulous new retreat where you will be able to learn how to re-create your favourite item/s without having to take them all apart, and spend a day really getting to know all that your overlocker can do, giving you the confidence to creat professionally finished garments everytime. 

We all have clothes in our wardrobe that we wear out  because we love them so very much..this retreat will give you the chance to learn how to easily create patterns from your beloved garments and recreate them with a fresh new look. Perfect for keeping your favourite pieces alive and for creating unique, personalised clothing.

Do you have an overlocker at home that you barely use, are scared of, dread to thread or only use to finish seams? This retreat is for you. Our tutor, Kristina, will expertly guide you until you make friends with your overlocker and understand the many many techniques that you can use to create beautifully finished clothing. Become an expert in using your overlocker. 

What we will cover is:

How to thread it                                                                                                                   Adjust tension                                                                                                                       Stitch length and stitch width                                                                                      Differential feed                                                                                                                       Flat lock                                                                                                                                    Blind hem                                                                                                                                Wide and narrow overlocking                                                                                           Narrow edge and rolled hem                                                                                         Gathering and pin-tucks.                                                                                                        If you have extra feet for your overlocker you will learn how to use them, like piping for example.

Still unsure? Read some of the wonderful comments from our lovely retreat attendees:

An amazing few days meeting like minded old friends and new. So lovely to have the time and headspace to just sew. There's always help available from Yvonne & Kate if you're stuck and of course fellow participants. We were treated to delicious food and cake as well as comfortable accommodation. Plenty of time to chat, use the hottub, read, walk or more sewing/crafts, just whatever takes your fancy. Highly recommend these retreats but please don't book as it's difficult enough to get a place as it is 🤭😁

What a fantastic time we had. The welcome and care taken by Yvonne and Kate is exceptional. This was our 3rd retreat and it felt like going home to meet old friends. The accommodation is great and food is very yummy. Sewing, eating and Hot Tubbing! Can’t wait for next year!

 It truly felt like a retreat….. my brain felt so relaxed with all that mindful sewing bliss. Can I also mention the amazing food…every meal was simply delicious. We cannot wait to attend another retreat next year"

My Sister and I had a fabulous time as we always do. The place, food, and whole holiday are exceptional. The guests who come to the Retreat are always so interesting, so different and fun. The hosts, Yvonne and Kate are always so hospitable, got time for everyone whatever their problems be it sewing or personal and are so caring and this makes for a very "homely", charming, relaxing, stress relieving holiday and trip number 8 is already booked and we are both looking forward to it already. 

SO looking forward to seeing you at our retreat soon xx
