Including: Arrival pastries, buffet lunch, three course dinner menu, and on day two, breakfast and afternoon tea. Plus tea, coffee and shortbread throughout and a goody bag full of sewing gifts.

The Sewing room looks out on to the hotel courtyard and has a private patio area.

About Victoria and me:

Vic and I have run many workshops together as well as each having our own successful small sewing businesses.

I designs and sell my unique range of Jenerates sewing tools and notions all over the world (you might recognise me from the Great British Sewing Bee, Series 5 semi finalist).  Victoria has several years' experience as a dressmaking tutor  and owns Little Rosy Cheeks selling inspiring sewing labels, with children's sewing patterns coming soon.


The Hotel:

Airth Castle is a spectacular spa hotel in Stirlingshire, central Scotland, within easy reach of both Edinburgh and Glasgow airports. The pool and spa facilities are excellent - if you want to add on an extra night please let the hotel know you're coming to the retreat for their best rates.


The retreat will take place entirely on the ground floor. Bedrooms with fully accessible bathrooms are available on request.
