Sunny Dene is the perfect place for a quilting holiday or creative retreat with friends. The garden room is perfect for quilting or sewing with it’s sturdy table and plenty of natural light. Caroline enjoys quilting (and has made many of the soft furnishings and quilts at Sunny Dene from vintage fabrics). She finds the beautiful countryside with fields of wheat and poppies, or the wonderful beaches, a great inspiration. On request a sewing machine and cutting mat can be provided.
In the area there are a number of quilting shops for any supplies. Tuliptree Designs (based at Groveland Farm Shop) is a delightful small shop based just 7 miles away in Thorpe Market. They offer a range of workshops in quilting and button making. Sew Creative (based at Wroxham Barns) has everything a quilter needs. They also offer quilting workshops. Sew Simple (based at Taverham on the outskirts of Norwich) is a large hobby store that sells quilting and all kinds of crafting materials. There is also a Hobby Craft shop in the Riverside complex in Norwich and a little fabric supplies shop (Something Special) in Holt.
