Quilt Spa Retreat


Friday 1st November (10am - 5pm) and Saturday 2nd November (10am - 4pm) 2019

Beechwood Hall, Cooksbridge BN7 3QG

Set in a light-filled venue in a beautiful, rural location, quilt spa is a perfect opportunity to relax, sew and recharge your batteries with creativity.

This two-day, non-residential retreat will be a haven for those who love to quilt, as we work on our personal selection of projects and enjoy one another’s company.

With delicious food, a special guest quilter and a fun, shared project all included, quilt spa is a unique opportunity to unwind and be inspired.

Just take a moment to read the details below before you book one of the ten spaces available or contact me with any questions.

All the details

The retreat includes:

  • Exclusive use of Beechwood Hall in the South Downs National Park near Lewes, East Sussex

  • The company of a small, friendly group of like-minded quilters

  • All meals and refreshments including breakfast pastries, buffet lunches and afternoon teas

  • Special guest session on making memory quilts with Claire Campion of Made Just Sew.

Things to bear in mind:

Quilt spa is a self-guided (not taught) quilting retreat for confident new and improving quilters. Host and quilt teacher Kathleen Anderson will be on hand throughout to help but you can choose exactly what to work on, how much you want to do and set your own pace. To double-check that quilt spa will be perfect for you, just drop me an email before you book.

Please let me know at the time of booking if you have any special dietary requirements or other needs to get the most from quilt spa.

The retreat is non-residential. If you need to arrange accommodation locally, please do feel free to get in touch with me for suggestions.

A waiting list will be available. If you’re unable to book a place, please contact me to join the list.

Plenty of free parking is available at the venue.
