April 2017 has been a busy month – nothing new there then!
A knitting and spinning Retreat at Higham Hall in Cumbria, English Lakes. This was a new venture. Although I regularly deliver courses for Higham, this was the first Retreat I have done there and I am sure it will not be the last.
An absolutely brilliant time and Higham let us use their sitting room with it’s wood burning stove. We were knitting, crocheting and spinning. Not all at once you understand but people chose what they wanted to focus on. We did a wee project as usual. this time it was mug hugs or cosies.
And courses for Wigtown and Eden Valley guilds of weavers, spinners & Dyers this month too. An ‘Improve Your Spinning’ course at Wigtown and Silk Spinning at Eden Valley. We stayed in the Lakes for a few days and had the very great pleasure of visiting the Camping Barn near Keswick and having a good old knit, natter and cake eating afternoon with Sarah and her friends!
There will be another Retreat at The Old School in October 2017 by the way… They of course are our regular Retreat venue. Only four rooms, but they can accommodate a couple of camper vans and day places are available too.
