With the WOOL Retreat just a couple of weeks away it’s very tempting to start counting the days until I’ll be back on the dock with the friends (new and old) who have stuck with the event over the years. Unfortunately, life dealt a few of our group a bad hand and they’ve had to cancel their reservations. I’m sad that I won’t see them in August, you can be sure. However, this may end up being someone else’s last minute treat as there are now four rooms open in our building (Wakonda) that weren’t before.
If you’d like to check out our retreat you can find the registration post here. Basically, a small group of ladies of all ages who like yarn get together to do things with yarn for several days in August. There’s sun, a beautiful lake, meals provided for you by dedicated volunteer staff, and a whole bunch of magical stuff in between. For me, it means sitting on the dock with my spinning wheel for four days and spinning until it’s time to eat or go to bed. For others, it might mean walks, canoeing, knitting, crocheting, yoga, meditation, spinning, or reading a book in a secluded spot. There are no formal classes (think of it as a social retreat) and no money is made by me to organize the event.
The entire event runs from Thursday, August 8th through Sunday the 11th. Some of us will be there the entire time, others will be arriving on Friday. You can come for as few or as many days as you like for the inclusive rate of $115pp. Wiawaka, the retreat center, also offers day passes for those who would prefer that route.
Questions? Don’t hesitate to ask. I hope you’ll consider joining our small group. We’re happy to have you join, just bring your yarn, your bathing suit, and your sense of humor.
