YARN DESIGN FROM SHEARING TO SKEIN with Pacific Knitting Retreats
April 29 @ 10:30 am - 4:00 pm$295
Here are the event details for our day at Red Creek Farm with Peggy, Matthew and Sarah. I am so looking forward to this great opportunity to be in the company of knitters learning more about our favourite subject – yarn. The end of April is a perfect time to be with the lambs and sheep and the people who care for them and create the products we love to use. I do hope you will be able to join us for this lovely day.

There is an array of accommodation options in Ukiah for those who would like to extend their time in Mendocino County, including the historic Vichy Springs Resort if you really want to relax and unwind. The mineral hot springs are renowned and have been hosting presidents, artists and the rest of us since 1854. The hiking on this property is pretty glorious. Use of the baths, pools and hiking trails are included if you stay at Vichy, but pools and baths are available for day use also.
If there are participants who overnight in Ukiah, I will host a knitting circle on the evening of the 29th (we can cast on our special event favor together perhaps or just bring your current wip)
AN IMPORTANT NOTE: Peggy and Jonathan are opening their home as well as their farm to us. They care (joyfully!) for their young grandson there too. In recognition of that, I ask that you please test for Covid before you come up. Most of our day will be spent outside, but masks are acceptable for anyone who would be more comfortable wearing one, of course.
Bookings will open on February 23, 2023.
