Fall 2019 Classes & Knitting Retreat

Fall Class List & Knitting Retreat

Boyne Mountain Fall Knitting Retreat
September 21st to 23rd, 2019

Join us for a relaxing and fun knitting retreat weekend in beautiful Boyne Mountain.
Check in begins at 4:30 Saturday September 21st, 2019 at the lovely Presidential Suite, which looks like a European Ski Chalet.

Our retreat begins with dinner, introductions and a fun game developed by Cori Eichelberger, who will be with us for the entire weekend! Cori is a super fun knitting instructor/designer/podcaster/speaker. On Sunday, Cori will share her "50 Shades of Sweaters" workshop. She actually brings 50 sweaters with her. Previous attendees of this class have raved about it. We are so excited to have this opportunity on our retreat!

Though we have both activities and chill time planned, there are many additional things to do in the area if you wish. Nearby is Stonehedge Fiber Mill, Wool & Honey Yarn Shop, Boyne City, Tunnel of Trees, Historic Legs Inn, and much more. 

Plan a wonderful Fall getaway with yarn loving friends and sign up for our Fall Knitting Retreat at our shop. Click here for more info. 

Discounted rate available until August 20, 2019!
