Transitions Fiber Retreat
This retreat combines a love of fiber with mindfulness, good company, and massage. How can you beat that?
The retreat takes place at the lovely and quiet Blue Mountain Retreat Center, located in Knoxville, Maryland, near the historic town of Harpers Ferry WV. The Fall 2022 retreat runs from October 7-10. Lunch and dinner is included and breakfast is DIY with provided eggs, yogurt, etc. Meals are dairy and gluten free and Delicious!
All fiber arts are welcome – bring your knitting, weaving, crocheting, spinning, beading, quilting, etc. The retreat is focused around doing your own thing, so no classes are offered, but the participants always include a number of folks with broad experience who are happy to help, so beginning fiberistas are welcome.
I will be bringing a small loom and my spinning wheel, so if you want to try your hand at either weaving or spinning, I will be happy to give you a quick intro.
Massage is also available (at separate cost) and can be coordinated with Beth – see below.
Things you will need to bring:
* For knitting, crocheting, spinning, etc, bring your own pattern, yarn, needles and other gear. Ball winder and swift will be available.
* If you wish to have alcohol or sodas or special snacks, you need to bring your own. We request that you don’t drink alcohol before classes. For this retreat, I would like folks to be mindful of sugar overload.
Other good stuff:
We are not requiring masks at the retreat. If you have not been vaccinated, it’s not a show stopper – touch base with me and we can discuss.
I am keeping the retreat small – everyone will have their own room unless they bring a buddy to room with.
Beth has maintained a stringent set of cleaning protocols and has uv filtration in place for the air handling systems at the retreat center.
See you soon!
Arrival time is between 3-5 pm on Friday. See you then!
I look forward to seeing you!
