Typical Itinerary (subject to change)
The weekend starts on Friday afternoon, when you arrive at the Bramble Patch anytime from 12pm to unload your sewing machine and supplies. Have a look around the shop, meet Wendy and Claire and get set up in the workroom, then head to the hotel to check in to your room. Everyone will meet for an early evening meal at 6 pm and then make their way back to the Bramble Patch for an entertaining evening workshop with Wendy and Claire.
After breakfast at the hotel on Saturday, head back to the Bramble Patch (walk if you like and weather permits – it's about 10 minutes through the village) for the day. Wendy and Claire guide the workshop with plenty of demos and tuition along the way. Free tea and coffee is available while you're at the shop and our Conservatory Coffee Shop will provide a freshly prepared lunch, leaving you free to concentrate on your sewing (and shopping, if you wish). The workshop continues through the afternoon, with a return to the hotel for your evening meal.
After dinner, Wendy and Claire will be back at the shop – join them for more patchwork, or just take it easy at the hotel and enjoy not having to do the washing up!
Another breakfast at the hotel on Sunday will be followed by the final sewing session at the shop. We'll provide lunch from our Coffee Shop again. After lunch, you can complete your sewing or shopping, and leave when you're ready (final departures by 3.30 pm) for your journey home.

- accommodation for 2 nights (Friday/Saturday) in a single or shared twin room depending on your choice (all rooms with ensuite bathrooms)
