I’m pleased to announce that tomorrow at 10:00am Mountain Standard Time, registration will open for my Knit For Fun Retreat in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin!
This retreat will take place in picturesque Door County, Wisconsin from Thursday, September 20 to Sunday, September 23. We’ll be staying at The Lodge At Leatham Smith in Sturgeon Bay, where rumor has it that some of the biggest pumpkins are grown.
My Guest instructors will be Susan B. Anderson, Olga Buraya-Kefelian (aka olgajazzy), and Laura Nelkin. I’ll fill in as the Knit Doctor to help with whatever ails you.
Susan B. Anderson of Madison, Wisconsin, is author of six best-selling knitting books—Itty-Bitty Hats, Itty-Bitty Nursery and Itty-Bitty Toys series, Topsy-Turvy Inside-Out, and most recently, Kids’ Knitting Workshop—as well as four popular Craftsy.com online workshops. In late 2016 Susan and her son started Barrett Wool Co. Susan’s favorite part of her knitting career is traveling the country teaching and meeting knitters from all over the world.
Visit Susan at her award-winning blog.
The daughter of a professional tailor, Olga Buraya-Kefelian (aka olgajazzy) acquired an understanding of clothing construction at a young age. That understanding has evolved into Olga’s imaginative yet versatile knitwear designs that balance a love for texture with a minimalist approach. Her designs evolve from technique-driven elements that provide her students with a greater learning experience and impeccably finished knitwear.In addition to publishing her own designs, Olga is a contributing designer, author and co-author of numerous titles.

Laura Nelkin, author of KnockOut Knits, lives in upstate New York, where the short sunny season leaves plenty of time for knitting. She received a degree in apparel design from Cornell University, but took to knitting years ago and hasn’t looked back. Laura is currently enamored with lace and with incorporating beads into knitted jewelry. She teaches these techniques and more at workshops across the country. Laura has a line of knitting kits, self-published patterns, and runs mystery Knit-A-Longs throughout the year. Visit Laura at www.nelkindesigns.com.
As the Knit Doctor, I’ll offer 20-minute appointments on a first-come, first-served basis. I’ll help you take measurements, choose yarn or patterns, measure gauge, fix mistakes, find your place in a pattern, or anything else that’s causing you to stumble. To secure an appointment with the Knit Doctor, email Cindy Hallam at knitforfunretreats.com. She’ll schedule your slot when you’re not in one of the other classes.
The retreat will begin Thursday, September 20, with an optional 6-hour class followed by dinner and opening festivities. In addition to all meals and lodging, each participant will get three 3-hour classes (one from each teacher) beginning Friday morning and ending Sunday morning, plus the opportunity to make an appointment with the Knit Doctor (that’s me).
The event will end in the early afternoon of Sunday, September 23, following morning classes.
We’ve got lots of treats planned, including an impressive swag bag, an exclusive market place, prizes, and even a sunset wine and cheese cruise along the bay!
