Our popular Pattern Drafting Retreat is back!


Don't miss out on our highly sought-after pattern drafting retreat, now with another chance to join in on the fun!

Our fantastic tutor, Kristina, will show you the ins and outs of pattern drafting and fitting, as well as how to wear the perfect colours for your unique style. Say goodbye to the disappointment of ill-fitting or mismatched clothing - we've got you covered. Plus, with our special Colour Analysis workshop, you'll learn how to choose the most flattering shades for your complexion, making you look vibrant, youthful, and confident. You'll even receive a colour swatch to take home and keep with you for future fabric shopping trips.

We'll guide you through the process of measuring and making your own bodice block,(you may even get as far as making and attaching a skirt block too) how to use these body blocks alongside commercial patterns as well as learning how to mainpulate the darts to make many different styles.

Kristina is a fabulous teacher. She is relaxed, fun, really knows pattern cutting inside out and she teaches our colour analysis workshop in an all inclusive interactive way.

During your retreat you can choose to visit Stone Fabrics in Totnes, where you'll have the chance to drool over and buy from their stunning selection of fabrics in your newly discovered colour scheme.

Included in your retreat are:

3 nights accomodation in a stunning property with views of the River Dart (each room with an ensuite or private bathroom)

Dedicated sewing room that is accessible anytime day or night (if you like a spot of nighttime sewing!!)..again with stunning views

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
