Sew Your Own Weekend Retreat

Take a distraction free weekend in my West Wales sewing studio to give yourself time to make the clothes you’ve been wanting to create.

Sew Your Own Weekend Retreat

Date: Saturday 12th & Sunday 13th November 2022
Location: West Wales, SA38 9BS

Time: 10am until 4:30pm each day
Price: £270

  • In the Open Sew Weekend, there is no expectation of following a particular project or getting to a certain point by a certain time, this is about about you giving yourself the time and space you need to sew uninterrupted and without guilt.

  • Maybe you’ve become stuck with a certain project and would benefit from the expertise and advice of a qualified dressmaker? This is the place for you.

  • I will be on hand to help with all aspects of your fitting and making journey, offering advice and practical help where needed. If you have any questions beforehand, you can contact me here.

  • The Open Sew Weekend is open to anyone who already knows how to use a sewing machine. Before you make a decision, see what past participants have to say!

What You Need to Know About the Open Sew Weekend Retreat

Because everyone is working on their own project...​

  • You get to make *exactly* what you want 

  • There is no expectation to get to a certain point at a certain time

  • There is the opportunity for lots of one-to-one tuition and fitting time with me

  • Being surrounded by all of the creativity in the room will inspire more projects and ideas than you came in with - be warned!

  • If you don’t already have a project in mind, and the idea of choosing your own one is a bit daunting​, I can have a pre-class call with you to discuss your options and make a plan based on your own objectives.

This is about making time for you to sew, so...

​​

  • A freshly cooked lunch each day and snacks are included as part of the weekend

​​

  • You get to leave your machine and project out overnight - bliss!

​​

  • You will be spending the weekend in my creative studio, so everything you could need is there. You will have access to fabric, books, patterns, a big cutting table, an overlocker, haberdashery... it's all there!

​​

  • No interruptions... There will be no having to drop what you are doing to (insert whatever chore gets in the way of your creativity here). Isn't that the dream?

Spaces are limited to 6 participants per class to provide the ultimate, luxury experience

"Camille's sewing weekend was my first time sewing with others. It was such a nice energy in the room and having her to ask questions gave me the confidence to do multiple projects, as well as having the skills to take home with me. It was worth the 7 hour journey and I am planning to join again."

"The studio is excellent. Tables for cutting out are nice and high to save our backs. The workstations have ample space and suitable lighting. All necessary tools are available and most importantly Camille is there with her knowledge and skills. Everything adds up to a wonderful sewing retreat."
