Stitch with Jenny – Retreats in Rye, England

We are incredibly excited to announce our retreats for 2024, which will be located in the picturesque medieval town of Rye, on the south coast of England.

We will be hosting from The George Hotel, one of the most captivating hideaways; perfect for design lovers, foodies and the creatively inclined. Accompanying us on the retreat will be an internationally renowned quilt designer who has created a bespoke project especially for you to stitch.

Lots of time will be made for unwinding and enjoying a relaxing stitch, with planned visits to Lamb House (home of author Henry James) and one of the local world-renowned gardens: Sissinghurst or Great Dixter. Rye additionally has plenty to explore: along the cobbled pathways, you will find many boutique shops, quaint tearooms, historical churches and antique shops. Special textile trips will be made to Pincushion’s shop, Merchant and Mills as well as a secret fabric brocante treasure trove!

The cost of £2000 is all-inclusive and can be paid with a payment plan if desired. Meals will be hosted in private rooms at the most prestigious restaurants in town and the accommodation at The George is classically English and divine.
