Improve your knitting techniques and replenish your body and spirit at this retreat in the beautiful Northeast Georgia Mountains. Yoga practice and knitting workshops each day in a safe and supportive environment.

“Sit and Knit with Me”

 Intrigued by a tricky pattern? Ready to try a new stitch technique? Want to try steeking but the thought of taking scissors to your knitting gives you hives? You’re invited to bring along a project that poses a knotty problem or a learning challenge, and our skilled experts and teachers will be there to help you. We will ask you a couple of weeks in advance if you know what you want to learn, but if you decide while you’re there, that’s great, too! We’ll be ready!
