Where Would You Like to Retreat?

It’s hard to believe that my Knit For Fun Retreats is in its fourth year! I got the idea for the retreats (even the name) when I was looking for my “happy place” while recovering from a broken arm.

I’m glad to report that my arm is thoroughly healed and I’m I having a thoroughly good time hosting retreats! My plan was to hold the retreats in cities across the country that I wanted to visit. Turns out, I’ve taken them to Canada, too.

So far I’ve taken my retreats to Park City, UT; Estes Park, CO; Freeport, ME; Vancouver, WASavannah, GA; Sturgeon Bay, WI; and Edmonton, AB, Canada.

This year we’ll go to La Jolla, CA; Mont Tremblant, Quebec, Canada, and return to Freeport, ME.

The teachers have included notables Susan B Anderson, Lorilee Beltman, Olga Buraya-Kefelian, Nancy Bush, Bristol Ivy, Carson Demers, Meghan Fernandes, Norah Gaughan, Sivia Harding, Susannah IC, Galena Khmeleva, Joji Locatelli, Laura Nelkin, and Justyna Lorkowska (oh, and me, too). We’ve got Nancy Bush, Andrea Rangel, Veera Valimaki, Alexa Ludeman, Nancy Marchant, Julie Weisenberger, Kate Atherley, Isabel Kraemer, and Mary Jane Mucklestone lined up for 2019. Wow!

I’m writing now to ask where *you* would like to join in a Knit For Fun Retreat and what teacher(s) you’d like to learn from. North, south, east, or west, I’m game to travel the continent. There is plenty of this beautiful country that I have yet to explore.

Perhaps a future Knit For Fun Retreat could be somewhere you’re keen to visit!

  1. I attended the Vancouver WA retreat and will be attending the LaJolla retreat. How about San Francisco or Sacramento? The central CA coast is nice too—Asilomar, Monterey, Cambria, come to mind. See you in September! Romi Hill, Gudrun Johnson, Beth Whiteside, Janine Bajus, are names that come to mind.

    Having another retreat in Vancouver, Washington would be amazing-I missed the last one. The San Juan Islands are also ideal for a retreat.

  3. I would want to be an easy drive from the NY metro area. Long Island, Poconos, Atlantic City, Connecticut

  4. Michigan! Traverse City. Grand Haven. Grand Rapids. Charlevoix. All pretty places and we’re hoping you come this way. Please.

  5. Oswego, NY

    It’s a small city on Lake Ontario. As you drive into town from nearby Syracuse, NY, it feels like you’ll drive right into the lake … and indeed you would, if you miss turning onto the main street. Plenty of hotels, lots of friendly local knitters and crafters, and upstate NY is a hidden gem of small farmers and makers who would populate the marketplace with one-of-a-kind fibery goodness … and cheese! Oh, maple syrup …
