Prima Knitting Retreat

Join popular knitting experts Frederica Patmore and Sarah Hazell and indulge in your favourite pastime on this relaxing 2-night Prima knitting retreat in the heart of the beautiful Northamptonshire countryside. Enjoy two full days of workshops where you’ll learn new skills under the expert guidance of Freddie and Sarah, who’ll share plenty of tips and techniques as they help you get creative!

Specially chosen for this exclusive Prima holiday, Sedgebrook Hall combines Victorian charm with modern amenities and is the perfect place to relax with others who share your passion. The hotel, in the delightful village of Little Brampton, is ideally located being close to the M1 and Northampton railway station. Rooms are available for check-in from 2pm and the afternoon is free for you to enjoy the hotel’s facilities, which include a leisure club with gym, hot tub and heated indoor pool. Sedgebrook Hall stands in beautiful gardens and there are comfortable lounges where you can get busy with your needles and get to know your fellow knitters.

Frederica’s workshops

Join Freddie for a festival of colour as the sun sets on multiple lockdowns and things start to look a little brighter. Arm yourself with a brand-new skill of how to knit a basic sock and relish in different techniques to make the best use of self-striping sock yarns with inspirational experiments on how to best use these patterned fibres to look their absolute best. Embrace entrelac, swish through short row shaping and put a zig in your zag with chevrons and mitred squares. Never waste a yard again!

Sarah’s workshops

The project will be a small drawstring bag, inspired by a trip to India. It will be knitted in a cotton yarn and feature patterns associated with Indian textiles. Techniques covered will include texture, twisted and quilted stitches, beading and slip stitch colour work. Instructions will be given for working flat or in the round.
