Creating Your Own Project(s) at the Retreat

I had a question about the retreat today, so in case someone else has the same one, I’ll answer it  here: “What if I don’t want to do the projects that you and Kim have planned?”

And the answer to that is, NO PROBLEM. Come anyway! 

Whether you are sewing, crocheting, or knitting, here is the view you will see out a huge wall of windows for 3 days....

Bring along your UFOs, or bring along a new project of your own to start. Kim and I will be there all weekend. While we are both teaching, we also both have long stretches where we don’t have a class. (We are never teaching at the same time, in case there is someone out there who wants to take every single class.) We will be more than happy to help you with anything you wish to do.

If you’re not normally a class-goer, the retreat has many benefits in addition to attending classes. You can hang out with a bunch of kindred spirits doing what you all love best. You get great meals served to you so that you don’t have to cook. You can take walks or even bike rides in a beautiful setting. You can get help when you’re stuck—right then and there. You can talk knitting, crochet, and quilting. Best of all, you do this by getting away from it all—no dishes, no laundry, no cleaning allowed. And we grieve to tell you that the cell service at Raystown is spotty. People may not be able to call you easily. (We have a number they can reach in case of emergency of course!)

The retreat is like a 3-day slumber party for grownups! It gives you me-time, which none of us gets enough of. It gives you quiet if you like, chatter if you like—whatever you wish. It is your weekend! Give yourself permission to relax and have fun!

So spend 3 days knitting, crocheting, and quilting with us, which I bet you never do on your own at home—and think of everything you can accomplish! 

The retreat will be held April 5-7. As I said in the last post, the earlybird deadline has been extended to Saturday, February 9.  (You can still sign up at the regular rates through Feb. 22.) Call us at 814-238-4151 to sign up! We'll be excited to hear from you!
