Welcome to Inspire Quilting & Creative Textile Retreats

Would you like to spend a little time away, being pampered, with absolutely no distractions, allowing you to concentrate 100% on your creative side?
Then perhaps an Inspire Quilting & Creative Textile Retreat is just for you.

What We Do

Inspire Creative Events organise Quilting and Creative Textile holiday retreats, offering a fresh and revitalised approach to learning breaks in the UK.

We have an amazing selection of the best international tutors, all of whom are famous authors or renowned experts in their field. We bring them together at a great hotel for five days, so that you can choose who you would like to take a class or talk with. There are lots of extras planned for those who stay at our hotels, but if you live locally there is the option to just attend the workshops.

What’s In It For You

  • Lots of tutors, workshops and talks to choose from each day
  • Pick how long you stay for and what classes or talks you take
  • Enjoy getting up close and personal with the best in the business
  • Relax, unwind and create at your own pace
  • Small, select vendors area to supply you with anything you may need during your break
  • Talks for quilting groups in the evenings
  • Meet like-minded people and make friends
