Make like Cath Kidston

Learn her craft tricks on a weekend away in Cornwall

by Bernadette Fallon

Now that the evenings are drawing in, it’s time to think about cosy autumn pursuits. Like making patchwork cushions and tote bags. What, you haven’t thought yet about making patchwork cushions and tote bags? You prefer to leave that Cath Kidston? Well, funny you should mention that.

Book yourself into the lovely Bedruthan Steps hotel in Cornwall this November for the ‘Cath Kidston Patch Break’ and learn how to make all of the above. Led by Lisa from London sewing cafe ‘Sew Over It’ on Cath’s behalf, the weekend costs from £340 for a two-night stay. It runs from November 4 - 6, and there are subsequent weekends planned for January 29 - 31 and March 9 – 10.

For more information and booking contact Bedruthan Steps on 01637 860555, email or visit the website at

But we’ll leave the last word to Cath - "I've always loved collecting textile scraps and patchwork is the ideal way to use these, and the more eclectic and unexpected the combination of fabrics, the better the result. The patch working weekend at Bedruthan is great for beginners and expert crafters alike, either as an introduction to the technique or as a way to explore new and exciting ideas."
