I have some more exciting new to share today. Knit & Knot is hosting a knitting retreat this November! It is being planned by yours truly and my friend Joy, who happens to be the owner of Knit & Knot :).
Here are the important details:
Dates: Friday Afternoon, November 1st through Sunday Afternoon, November 3rd, 2013
Location: Camp Wyoming, Wyoming, IA. The Owls Nest Lodge, to be exact.
Cost: $175. There is a $50 deposit to hold your place.
Accomodations: The cost includes a single bed in a double occupancy room and six meals (Friday dinner through Sunday lunch.) There will also be a goody bag with a couple of make and take projects provided!
We are planning several events, but the major goal of the weekend is to relax and do whatever you feel like doing. Very low-key. All events are optional, but we hope you decide to participate in a few!
The events we are currently planning are:
Learn the ins and outs of blocking your finished items. Laura and Joy will demonstrate various techniques. Bring a finished item to block, if you like!
Last Chance KAL or CAL.
Have you started one of our Knit or Crochet –A-Longs but never finished? Well here is your chance! Finish one of our KAL or CAL projects during the retreat and be entered for a chance to win a Knit&Knot gift certificate!
Make and Take Needle Felted Ornament.
This quick project will leave you dreaming up more ways to create charming needle felted projects. All materials provided!
Make and Take Knitted Ornament.
Get into the holiday spirit with a quick knitted ornament project. All materials provided!
Show and Tell.
Bring something you are especially proud of or maybe even something that you need a little encouragement to finish.
Laura and Joy will be available throughout the weekend to answer your knitting and crochet questions.
To reserve your spot, stop by Knit & Knot (3359 Devils Glen Rd., Bettendorf, IA) to place your deposit of $50. Payment may be cash or check payable to Joy Povich. You may cancel before October 15th for a refund. If you have any questions, please call 563-332-7378. Hope to see you there!
