We are excited to announce that Julia Farwell-Clay will be the featured instructor for the Spinnery’s 2019 Sugar Season Knitting Retreat.

Julia brings to her knitting students an abundance of knitting experience and a boundless enthusiasm for the craft. Her distinctive patterns can be recognized by their graphic interest and a modern twist on traditional color techniques.

She will share with us her current passion for intarsia colorwork, refreshing this classic technique through fresh applications.  We’ll begin with an intarsia introduction, then we’ll learn more about her eddy shells (shown in the cowl above). On Sunday, we’ll conclude by working on a beautifully simple and graphic mitten in the round, practicing various stranding options and possible embellishments.

Your registration fee of $375 per person includes three meals (Friday dinner, Saturday lunch and dinner) and nine hours of instruction on March 15th – 17th, 2019.

This year’s event will be held at the Hampton Inn in Brattleboro. We have a block of rooms reserved for you at the discounted rate of $125.00 per night. Please contact the Hamp­ton Inn to make your reservation using the code “Spinnery”.  These rooms are limited so register early!

 This is a retreat in the truest sense: a weekend away, moments of peace and quiet, a chance to visit Vermont with your needles and yarn and knit with like-minded crafters who are equally excited about learning new tips and techniques from one of our favorite designers.

Space is limited, so you’ll want to register as soon as possible, before our spaces fill.  You can find our registration form here.
