Kanuga Knitting & Quilting Retreat

January 14, 2016 - January 17, 2016

About the retreat

Learn new techniques from patient experts as you enjoy the perfect weekend escape for knitters and quilters. Experience the casual, friendly atmosphere in the Blue Ridge Mountains that only Kanuga can offer.

Knitters and quilters can choose a project to work on during this three-day retreat. Projects will be offered for beginning to advanced knitters and beginning to intermediate quilters. You are also welcome to bring your own project to work on. In addition to daily classes, there will be get-togethers by the fire, time for hiking to scenic mountain overlooks, and visiting area yarn and quilting shops.

A message from KKQ coordinator Varion Brandon:

Through the years, I have been surrounded by incredibly talented women. My great grandmother, my grandmother, my mother, and a wonderful woman who was a friend of my mom's who taught me to knit when I was eight years old.

With that spark of creating growing, I have taken classes, read books, and tried a lot of techniques with yarn and needles, but always seem to return to Fair Isle and Aran designs. Miraculously, as I look back on it, on my first trip to Shetland and the Outer Hebrides, I had the pleasure of taking classes with both Alice Starmore and Kaffe Fassette...so you can see where my love of color comes from!

Now after an undergraduate degree in architecture, a graduate degree in communications, and several years working in those two disciplines...which included writing and producing for public television...I am able to put yarn, color and design together full time. A happy part of my yarn life includes the Kanuga Knitting and Quilting retreat which I coordinate and provide some of the instruction every January. Think big fireplaces, creative people, and lots of fun!

Every day I think about those very talent women who have inspired me...some are here...some have moved on...but they are all with me in their own way.

Thank you all.
