Spring Retreat 2023

Sat February 18 @ 9:30 am - Sun February 19 @ 4:00 pm

- £100.00 – £270.00

Enjoy a relaxing weekend of sewing with other like minded sew-cial creatives.

Bring any projects, dressmaking, quilting, machine embroidery, homemaking and our tutors are on hand for when you need help and advice.

We have a beautiful dedicated workshop space at the Solent Hotel and Spa in Whitely, Hampshire and you can choose to stay one or two nights.

The price of £370 includes one night accommodation in a signature room, all your meals, tea, coffee etc for the duration of your stay. There is a reduction of £50 each if you and a friend are sharing a room too! There are also options for a 2 night stay.

Our tutors are around through the day but you are free to sew whenever you like and if you’d prefer to go for a swim or visit the spa, then do so, it is very much YOUR weekend.

We have our own dining room too and  look forward to pre-dinner (and after dinner)  drinks at the bar and social time with like minded people.

Please contact us if you have any questions.

Machines and Equipment:

We have everything available for you to use, unless separately specified for you to bring your own overlocker etc. Please feel free to bring your own sewing box if preferred.

Thread is available, unless a specific colour is needed, in which case we suggest you purchase one from our shop.

You will be offered a 10% discount on all fabric purchased during your workshop so its a good time to stock up for your next project.

We use lovely Janome sewing machines which are easy to use, have a speed control and thread cutter function. We have various other machines for you to use on request too, such as wide arm computerised machines for you to test out and enjoy whilst on your workshop

General Info:

Our aim is for you to learn skills and have fun whilst in our workshops. It is important that you feel comfortable to work at your own pace, please be advised that occasionally you may not completely finish your project but we will always support you with advise and instructions to complete what you started.

Workshop Bookings – Terms and Conditions

Booking our classes is similar to making a theatre booking, regardless of your attendance the ‘show must go on’ , therefore classes are non-refundable and sadly there are no catch-up opportunities for missed sessions. Please do check your diary carefully  before you book a class.

Workshop bookings require payment in full.

Alternatively bookings can be made in the shop with payment via cash, voucher or card or over the phone.

Gift Voucher bookings can be made by using the Voucher Payment method on the checkout page and quoting the Gift Voucher number and value in the notes section.

Workshop Cancellation – by our Creative Customers

If you have to cancel your workshop please notify Sew Creative as soon as possible by telephone: 01730 858020, then please confirm in writing by emailing us at info@sewcreative.org.uk

Workshop fees are non-refundable unless we cancel (see below)

You may transfer your workshop (subject to a £5 administration charge) to another of our workshops as long as we have 14 days notice. Alternatively, you may arrange to send an acquaintance in your place.

We do understand that sometimes you might have to cancel at late notice and we will do our best to re-fill you place by re-listing on our website, checking a waiting list, promoting late availability on our Social media pages and attempt to resell your space. If your space sells we will inform you by email after the class runs.

No refunds are given to those who fail to attend a workshop.

Workshop Cancellation – by Sew Creative

We will endeavour to run every published workshop, however there may be times, due to impracticalities, sickness or other unforeseen circumstances that we will cancel the workshop. In these instances you may transfer to any other workshops available. All payments received will be carried over to a new booking or a full refund offered.

We reserve the right to cancel any workshop at short notice. In this event you will be notified as soon as possible via telephone and/or email.
