A little bit of me time

On our creative retreats you can indulge yourself in two relaxing days of creativity.

Whether you choose our sewing, crochet, quilting, dressmaking or crafting retreat, you’ll spend your weekend with likeminded people in the sumptuous surroundings of a 4* hotel.

Taking time out is good for us all. Our creative retreats are a guilt-free time to craft, chat and laugh together.

We’re pretty sure you deserve two days off!


Tues 24th – Wed 25th September 2024
The Spa Hotel, Tunbridge Wells, Kent, UK

Make this your weekend

On all of our creative retreats you’ll find:

No packed schedule
… just space and time to focus on what you love to do. You won’t feel under pressure or racing against the clock.

A source of inspiration
… pick up and chat about ideas from others who share your passion.

Help available from expert tutors
… questions answered, problems solved and a variety of fun ‘how to’ sessions to choose from.

The break you need
… making time for yourself, you’ll leave feeling rested and rejuvenated.

A community you belong to

Finding people who love the same things you do, gives you a real happiness boost.

“I’m convinced I’ve got the best job in the world.

As well as running Made and Making – a centre for sewing and contemporary craft courses – I spend my time dreaming up the kind of creative weekend retreats I’ve always wanted to attend. 

Then I get to make them happen, meeting all sorts of fabulous people who share my passion.

I regularly appear on the Sewing Street TV channel with my quilt and other sewing patterns.

You can see some of my Sewing Street appearances here and order the patterns over on the Made & Making pattern page.
