For the past 3 years Claire Tyler has held many Sewing Retreats across the country.

                                               The Maker's Atelier Retreat      Brighton Gin      Sewing Retreat

Each retreat is held over 3 days in a hotel tried and tested by us. There will be a dedicated sewing room set up with enough space for 18 students to join.

We provide all of the tools you would need to complete a project from start to finish including overlockers, steam irons, cover stitch machines, pressing tools, haberdashery etc. All you need to bring is your sewing machine, sewing box, pattern and fabrics!

Claire will be on hand to guide you through your project should you need and will be demonstrating various tips and techniques each day.

On one of the days there will be a guided fabric shopping trip with Claire & Amy as well as plenty of time to explore the local area.

Each evening we organise a fabulous restaurant to visit for group dinners should you wish to join us, these are totally optional though!

We often have a guest speaker join us on one of the afternoons, these have included Frances Tobin from The Maker's Atelier, Jamie Kemp from The Great British Sewing Bee and even Brighton Gin for a tasting evening!

Our retreats are always a fun filled 3 days of sewing related relaxation and socialisation, spending time with like minded people sharing tips and stories and generally having a good old natter over some tea and cake!
