Knitting Retreat - April 20-22
4th Annual Rustic Retreat at In The Woods Campground in Canon, GA. The campground is a gay, clothing optional site; however, clothing (except bras) will be required during our stay.
The project this year is a cowl that you will be designing yourself with the help of a game die. You will roll the die and the number on the die will determine the color you'll use and the stitch you use. The retreat fees include all meals, the new Japanese Knitting Stitch Bible (where we'll get our stitch patterns) and yarn (one A Hundred Ravens mini kit and a skein of Cascade Heritage).
Pricing will vary based on whether or not you share a room and which room you reserve. Reservations are open now and will remain open until the rooms are all reserved.
Crochet Retreat - May 11 - 13
We will be at Asbury Hills in Cleveland, NC for this retreat. Price is $255 and includes room, meals, and goody bag/snacks for the weekend. We're making a flattering to everyone vest called the Enduring Vest. Raid your stash, bring appropriate hooks (or come by the store for a 25% discount on yarn for the vest).
