Announcing: Stitching in the Mountains

A brand-new retreat! October 20-22, 2023

Quick! Run! Just kidding – but you can register your interest now (click here – you will be sent to a Google Form).

I am so thrilled to be working with the lovely Lisa Lane from Paddock Lane Designs, who is a wonderful Australian designer, dyer and Flosstuber – to be putting on our own retreat next year! We really wanted to put together a retreat that is run by designers, where we get to relax and spend lots of time with you.

With that in mind, the retreat will be held at the historic guesthouse Glenella, in beautiful Blackheath, in the upper Blue Mountains, about 2.5 hours outside of Sydney, NSW. We will be renting out the whole guesthouse – which means 28 of us can stay the whole weekend together! There’ll also be room for 15-20 others who might just want to visit during the day.

Glenella is beautiful – with lots of accommodation options for different budgets and for people wanting to share rooms/groups (more details to come). There’s a big room out the back with excellent light for stitching, as well as lots of nooks and crannies to curl up with friends. You can find more info about the guesthouse at their website here and see a walkthrough below:

Blackheath is accessible also by public transport – it’s on the Blue Mountains trainline from Central (and Glenella is 5 mins walk from the station). The area has lots of cafes and restaurants, bookshops, antique stores and the area is full of beautiful bushwalks and sights. I’ll also be putting together some more information about other accommodation nearby, and places to visit.

And most importantly, we’ll have the whole weekend to stitch! Lisa and I are planning some exciting things – from exclusive designs to finishing classes. More info to come soon – but if you think you might like to come – please register your interest asap – we’ll be in touch with more information soon. Oh, and save the date!
