Craft Sanctuary Autumn Embroidery Retreat

Join Stitchtopia for an autumn embroidery retreat based in the heart of the Northamptonshire countryside. Sedgebrook Hall is the perfect location to unwind and enjoy a bit of ‘me’ time with an indoor swimming pool, hot tub and gym on site, and a fabulous workshop room for our embroidery sessions.

Our two-night retreat includes 12 hours of workshops with Royal School of Needlework tutor, Sara Dennis during which we will be working on one of Sara’s beautiful silk shading embroidery designs.

Workshops with our expert, Sara:

Silk shading: you will learn to blend colours within a needle. Sometimes known as painting with needles, silk shading requires a sense of colour and thorough preparation to achieve a beautiful end product, so we will start with design - a colour drawing, a shaded drawing, a stitch direction and an order of work. Moving on we will work on several samples before stitching the actual viola. You will leave the class with an understanding of silk shading and ready to tackle your own projects. - Sara Dennis
