About the Retreat

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.

 

Conference Staff

Coordinator
Varian Brandon: Through the years, I have been surrounded by incredibly talented women. Among them, my great grandmother, my grandmother, my mother and a wonderful woman who taught me to knit when I was eight. As the spark of creating grew, I explored classes, read books and tried various techniques with yarn and needles. In spite of this dabbling across the knitting spectrum, I always seem to come back to Fair Isle and Aran designs, due in part to my first trip to Shetland and the Outer Hebrides where I took classes with both Alice Starmore and Kaffe Fassette. Now, after an undergraduate degree in architecture, a graduate degree in communication and several years working in those two disciplines, I am able to put yarn, color and design together full time. My world is filled with colorful yarn and charting software.
