"The knitting and stitching retreat was wonderful - just what I needed. It was a lovely weekend where I was able to indulge in my passion completely without the pressures and commitments of everyday life. I got to spend time with friendly and kind like-minded people whose eyes didn't glaze over when I started talking about fabric and all things sewing!! Saj was also on hand to help with her unending knowledge which was so great and awe inspiring. The food was delicious and varied and catered for everyone's needs. I came home from the weekend feeling as though I had enjoyed a good rest as well as achieving something. I met some wonderful people and was made to feel extremely welcome - like part of a family. Thank you so much x"  Sarah B

"The balance between being cared for and looked after by others and challenged with a new sewing project is perfect for me. I have spent my life being responsible for others , it is magical to just be able to go with the flow knowing that there is not only expert advice and support available but also excellent food, warm friendship and a comfortable bed all within easy reach."

"Wonderful hosts – calm, entertaining, interesting and brilliant cooks. Loved the flowers, loved the venue, perfect relaxing environment but with a focus.  Wish I could do it all again!"  Jo D

"I've just returned from the Autumn knitting and stitching weekend, what an amazing time we all had from the moment we arrived. From the lovely goody bag, Saj's never ending knowledge and help she gave everyone, Lauren's amazing food, I'm still full from breakfast! Most of us were complete strangers on Friday afternoon but we left having made some lovely friends by Monday morning.
I would highly recommend a craft retreat with Go Deer, you really come away feeling happy, relaxed and accomplished. Very well done Saj and Lauren, you make an excellent team. xx"  Anne R

"Just on the train home after a fabulous weekend of sewing retreat. What a treat from start to finish. The house we stayed at was an amazing space, with plenty of room to work and relax in. The food was amazing - tasty, good quality and healthy choices, with lots of treats thrown in if you wanted - thank you Loren. So good to meet with like-minded people who were so encouraging of a newbie like myself. It was great to have Saj’s help along the way when needed, and she just let us get on with it when it wasn’t - thank you, Saj. And I go home with a (nearly completed) jacket. All in all, a great weekend."   Anita M
