Information for The Sewing Shed  Retreat- Tralee - 2022

We cannot wait for this event to start and to see you all !! This is the highlight of our Autumn, and we cannot wait to get sewing with you. 

Arrival and set up from 12.30 pm on Wed 2nd November- Sewing until Sunday 6th November at 12 noon. 

  • What to bring? ( apart from your packed suitcase)
  • Sewing machine, sewing kit, cutter, ruler etc... 
  • Projects to sew if your not doing the retreat project
  • If you have a small dustpan and brush, please bring to tidy your station after sewing, also a bag to keep rubbish will be useful 
  • Extension lead. 
  • Snacks....don't forget the snacks. 
  • Headphones if you wish to listen to music ( This might sound odd, but if people play music while sewing there may be someone in the room with auditory sensory issues and are too embarrassed to say anything, this has happened before at a retreat so we recommend earphones to solve this issue)  

The balance can be paid to me by bank transfer, cheque or postal order or directly to the hotel. Please advise when you are making the final payment.

The hotel is the Meadowlands Hotel in Tralee. 066 718 0444. If you have not yet paid your balance on the room then can you contact them on this number. 

The restaurant in the hotel is fabulous and they do lunch and dinner, but there are other fabulous food places if you fancy a venture out. There are some lovely shops in Tralee if you want to walk into the town.
