VENUES

Our weekend courses are hosted in quiet rural places.
We will spend our time sewing together and sharing meals in the peaceful surroundings.
I run some courses from home or some at the Ceridwen Centre; both align with the features below:

 

Thimble home & studio

Thimble home is stuated in Rural Carmarthenshire between  Newcastle Emlyn and Carmarthen.
I open my home for sewing retreats  and private workshops.
 
 
The open space living room and kitchen offers generous space and light for our pop up  atelier.  
There is a wealth of nature to enjoy around our home from woodland to running streams.
Short courses are held  in Carmarthen learning centre.

Nourishment

It is no secret that I love good food.
Sharing meals is an integral part of our sewing retreats.
 Sometimes cooked by myself other times by in house caterers the meals we share are  hearty, vegeterian and  homecooked.

Sleepovers

I love those too!
If I can entice you to extend your experience ,  rooms are available. 
This is a cosy simple affair with mismatched retro bedding, well worn quilts covers  accompanied by the obligatory  hot water bottle.
Once you are ready to turn off your machine you can   fill the evening  to your heart's content.
Dinner and keeping the home fire burning is on me.
