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 firstname.lastname@example.org or ring the shop on 01729 824708
