Understanding Sewing Patterns 

Join us at Gartmore House for a 5-day sewing retreat in the heart of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park Scotland.

Gill, our professional sewing tutor will teach you everything you need to know about sewing patterns and getting the right fit.

This course suits experienced sewers and also beginners with some sewing experience.

Your week

Be your own stylist! Get to know all about patterns, cutting, fabric layout and fitting! By the end of the holiday, you’ll be able to produce a simple toile (practice garment) and transfer your fitting adjustments back onto your paper pattern before you make your final garment.

Your break includes home cooked food on a full board basis, accommodation (single, ensuite), professional teaching and cruise on Loch Katrine.
