(Edit: retreat is now fully booked)

I’m ridiculously excited to tell you all about a new Just Jude Designs venture!

 

 

Retreat from the stresses of life for a weekend of relaxation, creativity and great food in the spacious and comfortable Murlough House, surrounded by the beautiful Murlough Bay Nature Reserve!

 

Let me tell you all about it!

 

Your weekend retreat experience will include:

  • Time away to indulge your stitching passion, progress your projects or start something new
  • Fun meeting and connecting with other like-minded quilting enthusiasts
  • Support from your friendly, experienced tutor
  • Two optional project workshops (Sashiko Cushion / Selvedge Projects)
  • Light-hearted sewing games
  • Pop-up shop for fabric and haberdashery supplies
  • Comfortable accommodation in single, twin, shared and en-suite rooms
  • Ground floor ‘Less Abled’ accommodation available

I’ve attended several retreats in the past, and know first hand how relaxing and fun they are!  It’s so wonderful getting alongside other sewists, chatting, sharing and getting inspired by the plethora of creative projects being worked on.  Not to mention getting away from cooking and other family responsibilities for a few days!

 

So if you would like to join us for some serious sewing time and lots of craic, or to enquire more about room availability, drop us a line to justjudedesigns@hotmail.co.uk.

 

Happy sewing!
