You will have the chance to spend one day with each tutor, working with miniature quilts and silhouette patterns.
Using my quick and easy shadow applique technique you will make a miniature quilt on a festive theme. There will be variety of designs to choose from, including all our favourite festive images. You can make one or more of the ready to go designs or create your own little sampler. The technique is quick and easy and suitable for complete beginners as well as more experienced stitchers.
Surprising Silhouettes with Angela Madden
Join me for a fun day using my range of ‘Bird, beasties, flower and classic silhouette patterns. which can be used in lots of different ways to suit size and design requirements and allow plenty of room for creativity and individuality. Using machine sewn, fast and easy techniques which are suitable for all levels, they produce results that you will be proud of. Using silhouettes may be an old decorative idea but these ‘critters’ are definitely 21st century.

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 have reserved The Grange, a lovely 20th century addition to the main mansion house which was extended from the original farmhouse, with a private garden to the back. It is an ideal location for sewing retreats as the teaching, modern accommodation and restaurant are all under one roof, providing an unique sewing space for the weekend. We have our own dedicated parking spaces near the entrance to the Grange, making it easy to transport sewing machines and supplies. Indeed, The Grange offers everything you need for the perfect weekend retreat.
The 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.
