Craft Sanctuary Autumn Embroidery Retreat A new venue for Craft Sanctuary in 2021, Chesford Grange Hotel combines the character of a historic manor house with bright, contemporary design surrounded by 17 acres of countryside. This 2-night retreat is the ideal opportunity to meet like-minded people, learn a new skill or indulge in your favourite hobby. > !(images/project-image) **Jacobean Crewel work workshops** > *"This ‘Curly Leaf’ crewel work kit is an original design created by Helen McCook which has drawn its inspiration from embroidery of the Jacobean period in Britain. It is bold, voluptuous and abundant with its motifs and celebrates the movement and strongly feminine lines for which Jacobean embroidery is so synonymous.* > > *The class offers a range of surface stitch styles which means that you can be introduced to a few different approaches to working surface embroidery. Each stitch will be demonstrated and explained and then Helen will work around the group to give individual attention to your tension/style/technique to help with your development. She will also discuss some of the background history of design and embroidery of this period whilst you stitch."*- Helen McCook
