The yarn retreat is by far our most popular event. If you desire to spend time with your yarn-loving tribe, this is the place! Attending the retreat will give you the chance to:
That isn’t all there is to do at the retreat center, however! There are also plenty of opportunities for hiking, wildlife viewing, and bird watching. And door prizes! Grab your yarn and unwind with us!
These rates are per ROOM per night, not per person.
Lodge rooms are in the same building as the conference room and restaurant. Each room has 2 double beds or a king size bed and a private balcony.
Each two-bedroom, two-bathroom cottage has a fully-furnished kitchen and a private porch or deck that is surrounded by woodland, a short walk or drive from the main lodge. Each bedroom has two queen beds (total of four beds).
Each 1 bedroom cabin has a double bed, full bath, fully-furnished kitchen, and private porch or deck. The cabins are a short walk or drive from the main lodge.
The Woodland Loafers are cozy little hugs for your feet and they are also super quick to knit. Incorporating heel, toe and sole shaping these slipper are designed to fit and stay on your feet. Knit both flat and in the round, and the best part… There is absolutely no finishing required!
We’ll help you if you get stuck with any part of the pattern!
And did we mention they are super quick to knit? And super cozy? Made with 2 skeins of squishy-soft Malabrigo Chunky and size 8 circular needles and/or DPNs.
Use whatever needle you prefer for knitting small circumferences in the round. If you’re not sure, I suggest using the Magic Loop method with a 32″ or longer circular needle.
Choose your yarn when you arrive at the retreat. We will have an assortment of colors and the pattern ready for you.
Please only order 1 kit since it includes the pattern. We will have extra yarn and slipper soles available at the retreat if you want to make more than 1 pair.
“Awesome, awesome retreat! Beth and Angela are friendly, helpful, talented and willing to help with patterns and mistakes. Beautiful setting - woods, lodge, cottages. Wonderful to learn from the other attendees. Love going to the farm and store and seeing the wonderful yarns and buying.”
“The thing I liked best about the retreat was all the friendly, helpful people. Also loved the ease of going to our room to the dining room and conference room. The park resort was very pleasant and clean.”
“As usual, the weekend was simply wonderful. What a blessing it is to be able to spend time with friends that enjoy the same hobby that I enjoy. And it’s always exciting to meet new friends. Show and Tell is one of my favorite parts of the retreat. These ladies are so creative and always inspire me to try a new project that’s a little harder than the one I just finished. I love a challenge!”
I haven't missed one yet - I always make time for it. So relaxing. No schedules, no pressure. Just a wonderful stone porch, my knitting and friends.
