Sudoku with Jennie Rayment


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

We have had the most wonderful weekend retreat with Jennie Rayment at High Trenhouse, Malham. We spent the weekend making Sudoku cushions. Jennie showed us all how to twiddle and fiddle fabric into the most spectacular blocks. The weekend was perfect, great company, heaps of freshly home cooked food, comfortable en suite rooms, honesty bar and all in beautiful surroundings; unspoiled countryside to all sides perfect for Jennie’s morning run or a refreshing stroll in the evening after class.
The slideshow shows how our work progressed from a selection of squares through to finished cushions. Jennie was wonderfully generous sharing her knowledge freely throughout the retreat showing people how to get the most out of their machines using all manner of different feet to add embellishments and piping with hilarious anecdotes added for great measure.
We are planning another retreat in the summer of 2015 where Jennie will show us how to twiddle her circles; if you are interested in coming please feel free to get in touch either on here, by e mail or ring the shop on 01729 824708

I would just like to acknowledge that this blog has recently been getting visited regularly from Azerbaijan so I would like to welcome you to my blog and hope that you will continue to enjoy it.

  1. I had an absolutely brilliant weekend, twiddling and fiddling,laughing and nearly crying. We had good food, cosy rooms and a gorgeous location (despite the rain) Huge thanks to Anthea for arranging all this for us and to Jennie for getting up at 3am to drive all the way to Malham. Her teaching was fabulous, funny and frenzied (in a good way-no slacking allowed) She gave us many hints and tips re sewing in general, our machines and specifically quilting. She was quick to give students help if they were struggling and encouragement to keep us going. We had a gorgeous cushion at the end although mine needs a bit of finishing off. I met a whole host of new ladies who were great company and mealtimes were a hoot as we swapped gossip and stories.All in all a fantastic weekend and I’ll be back for the next one. Again my grateful thanks to Anthea and Jennie and also our hosts at Hight Trenham who looked after us so well.

    • Thank you very much for your comments, they make the whole thing worthwhile, you are correct everything was brilliant and couldn’t have happened without such good company all round. Jennie was brilliant and so were High Trenhouse we will definitely stick with this venue in the future.
      Once again thanks to everyone.
