Yippee...It appears that we can safely plan for a Fall Knitting Retreat!!
If you want to take full advantage of a relaxing weekend we suggest that you make your reservations for lodging now. I talked with Eighteen-Ninety Sleepover and she has availability for that weekend but those rooms need to be reserved soon as she books out months in advance. She also stated that if you book through online travel sites you pay a hidden fee and it is $10 more in the end. So for the best deal go directly to her site http://eighteen-ninetysleepover.com
Please note that we do NOT recommend the Days Inn that is also located in Casey.
Do I have to stay in Casey?
No, you can easily drive in and attend the activities. However some travel from a distance and others want a weekend away. The choice is yours.
Describe the workshops that you offer during the Retreat?
The workshops are part of the package. Jeanette will teach a morning lesson on "How to do Mosaic Knitting". Mosaic knitting is a form of color work that incorporates simple repeatable slipstitch pattens into an overall design.
In the afternoon, our goal is to inspire you with ideas for using leftovers from your yarn stash to create simple projects. We all have them. We all collect them. What can we create with them?
What are the plans for meals?
We will have information when you arrive that highlights all of the dining choices in our area. We will be providing your evening meal at Richards Farm Restaurant. It is a local favorite. All other meals are on your own.
We will have light snacks at The Corner Gathering Place (the former Yarn Studio location) throughout the Retreat. Sunday morning donuts and coffee will be provided through our newest coffee shop, Casey Coffee Co.
What are the Retreat hours?
You can check in at The Yarn Studio anytime after noon on Friday. The Corner Gathering Place (the former Yarn Studio) will be our headquarters for the weekend and will be open at 3 PM. We will host trunk shows and provide yarn tastings. You are welcome to hang out and work on your projects in this space. Our Saturday workshops will also be held in this location. On Sunday it will be open until 12 as the Retreat officially ends at noon on Sunday.
Don't miss the chance to knit and relax in Casey!!
