Those of you who know me know that I have recently returned to dressmaking after a gap of some years. It is a hobby I always enjoyed but I have never been certain I am actually any good at it. Whilst winter had us in its grip I decided I needed to book some treats to look forward to and one of them was a sewing retreat run by Sew Different. If you want to know more about the sewing of the weekend then this is covered in my sewing blog: Neytorin Sewing Exploits. There was a small amount of time before I left for home that I could use to explore the venue for the retreat, the rather wonderful Cannon Hall which is close to Barnsley.
