Two great tutors to choose from. Come along for two days of Patchwork and Quilting inspiration
Blazing Star with Jennie Rayment
Fun fabric fiddling this weekend as we demystify and simplify this simply stunning block – The Blazing Star (or Lone Star) – which can be used as a medallion centre for a larger quilt, or just on it’s own. Get your rotary cutters and machines ready – it’s great for both beginners and more experienced quilters.
Stashbusting with Paula Doyle
The Stash Buster Doctor is in! Bring me your unused yardage, forgotten jelly rolls, unwanted fat quarters, layer cakes and nickel packs, and yes, even your too-good-to-throw-away scraps, and I will show you how to transform them into beautiful and practical quilts ! We will piece Jazzy Fence Rails, Greek Key or Split Court Log Cabins, Split Nine Patches, and Big Triangles. We will frugally use ripped jeans and odd bits of wadding to make Charmed Circles, Go crazy with your Itsy Bits and Wonky Strips , and even do a T-Shirt Kantha Throw! You be working on one or more of these at the retreat, and you will receive patterns for all these quilts so you can continue de-stashing long after the retreat ! Simply choose the project or projects you wish to work on at the retreat, and I will send you a detailed list of the requirements!

Warbrook House Hotel (The Grange), Eversley
The Warbrook House Hotel will be our home for the weekend. A magnificent Grade I listed mansion set in 130 acres of Grade II listed gardens. We reserved The Grange, a lovely 20th century addition to the main mansion house. It is ideal for sewing retreats and includes our own dedicated parking spaces near the entrance to the Grange, making it easy to transport sewing machines and supplies.
The Warbrook House Hotel is conveniently located near the Berkshire-Hampshire border, and close to Heathrow Airport and Central London, which is accessible by train with connections from Reading, Fleet and Farnborough rail stations.
What’s special about a justhands-on.tv retreat
We keep numbers limited on justhands-on.tv retreats so that everyone has access to the tutors as well as the space to work on their project. Attendees tell us it is “ a little me time.”
