Wellington Shirtmaking Retreat 2018


Join me for an incredibly fun and uplifting sewing weekend in Wellington, New Zealand! 

The focus of the weekend will be on sewing and fitting a shirt or shirtdress from Cashmerette Patterns: choose from the Harrison Shirt, Harrison Shirtdress, or Lenox Shirtdress. Come with your pattern pieces already cut out, and over the weekend I'll give you personalized advice on getting a fantastic professional finish, and how to fit as you go. I'll also be in touch before the retreat to give you a personal sizing consultation!

(Note: the format of this retreat is a little different to our Australia retreats because the studio space is smaller.)

Price (shown in $USD) includes:

- 2 days of workshop teaching (10 – 5pm, with an hour for lunch) with me (Jenny Rushmore!) and my assistant. 
- All the sewing tools you’ll need to make your garment. You can bring your own sewing machine, or use one provided by the studio - we will contact you before the retreat to confirm which option you choose.
- You'll also be provided with a shirtmaking supplies list to purchase directly from our hosts, Made Marion Craft. 
- A free Cashmerette Pattern of your choice, that you can order any time (includes postage to NZ).
- Free enrollmment (worth over $175) to all three of our online sewing workshops: Shirt Making for Curves, Fitting for Curves and Pattern Hacking for Curves (and yes, that includes another free pattern, and more discounts!)
- Discounts are available for people signing up together - email us at hello@cashmerette.com

Date, Time and Location

- Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th February 2018, from 10 - 5pm.
- We will be hosted at Made Marion Craft, located at 1/100 Tory St, Te Aro, Wellington, NZ. 


- The retreat is aimed at advanced beginner or intermediate level sewists. It’s ok if you’ve sewn other garments but not a shirt before! 
- You should fit into the sizing range of Cashmerette Patterns: size 12 – 28, cup sizes C – H (see the sizing chart here). If you’re between sizes, that’s no problem, but we won’t be able to grade patterns up or down for you.
- Not sure if it’s for you? Email us a hello@cashmerette.com and we can advise you personally.

    What should I bring?

    - We’ll email you all the details for what to bring and prepare before the retreat. 

      What else should I know?
