Machine Quilter Retreat

We're hosting our first ever Machine Quilting Retreat, featuring guest quilter Trudi Wood. This is an opportunity to focus on machine quilting using a table top frame in a gorgeous rural setting, tucked away from the interruptions of daily life. We're keeping the numbers down to 5 participants so there will be plenty of one-to-one attention. All are welcome, whether you just need some help getting started or some inspiration to move up to a new level. The food will be delicious, the rooms comfortable and the conversation rewarding.
dates: from Friday to Sunday, February 25-27
venue: the award winning Chaplin House B&B
Martin Village in Lincolnshire
cost: £225 for a single room or £200 for a shared room.
Prices include 2 nights accommodation, meals, snacks and all quilting materials.

All 5 places for the February Retreat are now filled! We will let you know how it goes and post the dates for future Retreats. Please do contact us if you are interested in reserving a place or have any questions or suggestions: 01526 378057

Twelfth Night

In our house we keep the 12 days of Christmas. This means that I get to enjoy the Christmas tree for one more night! It has been so good to be able to savour such good times with family and friends.

All the kids are now back at school and the new year is well and truly started. I am very excited about this new year. Looking ahead I find myself engaged in activities and projects that are close to my heart.

The new DVD 'Beyond the Sea' is coming together as we prepare for the next filming session later this month. There are new and exciting changes to the New English Quilter frame soon to be revealed. 2011 is shaping up to be a great year. Tonight I will be nostalgic, grateful for this happy Christmas season and hopeful for the year to come.
