Come and join Steffi & Sophie for a weekend of Fun, Fluff and Food! 

Suitable for all abilities, from those who have never picked up a felting needle to people who have been felting for years and want to spend a weekend with like-minded fluff fanatics! You will find good company and Steffi and Sophie will look after you!

The weekend will start with a meal and a small taster project on the Friday night while we get to know each other. It gets into full swing on the Saturday and Sunday with the main projects and a Felting Frolics night on the Saturday. We wind down on Sunday afternoon. 

All your accommodation, food, materials and tools needed for Friday-Sunday afternoon are included - just bring your toothbrush! You are of course welcome to bring your on favourite tools and materials as well, and feel free to bring some of your needle felting projects to show people if you wish.

Testimonials from our Retreat in January 2018:

’I had a great weekend, very pleasant company, plenty of time to create my felted creatures with lots of constructive help from you both. The place was lovely and quirky and the food was fantastic and plentiful.‘ Andrea H. 

‘I really enjoyed myself and learned far more than I was expecting. Some of the useful little tips were invaluable and have answered so many questions I never knew I had to ask in the first place!!’ Margaret P.

"Two days of great food, company and needle felting! Steffi and Sophie put so much thought and hard work into organising such a great retreat, you literally come away feeling happy and content (and full of amazing food), having made new friends and bursting with new skills you have learnt and ideas - all ready to put into practise. I couldn't recommend it highly enough!" Louise E.

‘What a fantastic time we all had. So many memories and friends made. Steffi and Sophie couldn’t have done any more to make this the perfect getaway for ‘fluffaholics’! From the beautiful accommodation, food, prosecco (yes prosecco) and great advice on needle felting techniques to just good old fashioned chatting and laughter over endless cups of tea and coffee....who could ask for more. xx get booking‘ Janice H.

‘Thank you both for a wonderful weekend. The organisation and attention to detail was extraordinary! I know how hard it is running a long course and never once did I see either of you be anything other than totally professional! How you coped with all the dietary requirements I have no idea.’ Margaret U.
