The dates for our knitting & spinning retreats are filling up for this year. Feb 2017 is fully booked.
Visit my updated knitting retreats web page to see what is still available.
These retreats have just sort of grown organically. Our wonderful Ayrshire venue, The Old School became known to us via Victoria, the neice of the owners. She came to Create With Fibre for a one to one spindling lesson, having failed to get a place on any of the spindling courses Janet was teaching at the Edinburgh Yarn Festival. She is a jazz singer and what with her and Fiona, who sings wonderful Gaelic songs, some wine and the woodburning stove, the evenings are the best of fun.
And then it just sort of grew and now there are four retreats a year, two in the spring and two in the Autumn. They have become knitting, crochet and spinning retreats because people learn whatever they like and have an individual programme worked out for them. And people just keep coming back. You can see why!
The dining room at The Old School has been lovingly restored, just like the rest of the building. You have a whole classroom as your bedroom!

Results of a productive weekend Retrat. Rachel and Kerrie travelled all the way from Bedfordshire for this Retreat. Some Retreaters live just down the road though.
