I will be teaching at the Needlework Tours Craft Retreat 2022. Scroll down for more information.
With all of life’s ups and downs, it’s very important to take the time to nurture ourselves and pursue our passions, and nothing could fulfil that more than a craft retreat.
The Needlework Tours Craft Retreat is suitable for for crafters of all stripes, from the accomplished and intermediate to beginners who wish to try their hand at needlework, felting, hand appliqué, knitting, beading, and sashiko stitching.
This retreat will be held at the Rydges Parramatta, the gateway to the Blue Mountains. The venue features all-inclusive amenities, conference rooms, dining and fabulous accommodation, all located within the building; the perfect getaway for crafters.
Pricing starts at $1990 for meals, entertainment, and 6 days of classes.
I am very pleased to be one of the tutors at this retreat. Students will have the opportunity to sign up for the following sashiko projects under my instruction:
Create two indigenous-themed sashiko wall hangings. In the process, you’ll learn techniques essential to many sashiko projects: trace designs onto fabric for stitching; stitch your designs using sashiko embroidery; appliqué; audition fabrics using the mylar technique; stretch your panel over a frame for hanging.
Create a gorgeous table runner in sashiko. You’ll learn how to stitch a pre-printed sashiko panel and learn to experiment with variegated sashiko thread colours.
Create a beautiful square tablecloth using the famous Sashiko Crossings design. Master the techniques of sashiko stitching and appliqué.
