"It is an altogether wonderful experience. Cosy, comfortable, creative environment, fabulous food for every meal and in between (cakes and treats were scrumptious), expert tuition with real attention to detail, you are made to feel very comfortable about asking 'silly' questions, et cetera!"

"Go for it! You won't regret it. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and learned lots of new skills. The location was stunning as was the accommodation and food. Tuition was excellent and catered for all levels of ability. It was also extremely relaxing and I felt my batteries were recharged after it. The other guests were all lovely and we all got on well together."

"Back home now feeling inspired after a truly wonderful weekend away at a sewing retreat in the most beautiful location near Dalbeattie . As a novice stitcher I was a little anxious beforehand but it was such a relaxing and enjoyable experience I needn't have worried.

The tuition, food, location and the company were all second to none (unlimited cake too!)" 

"A truly glorious weekend. Relaxing in every way. The surroundings were stunning, the food fabulous and the company creative and fun.

All this enhanced by our talented and altogether tremendous hostess, Leah Halliday."

"Beautiful location and house, excellent tuition, easy projects and fabulous food. Super friendly and relaxed with the added bonus of stunning beach walks. A time to just completely switch off."
