Fall Spinners Retreat


Oct 16,2014 - Oct 19,2014Time: 5:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Join the Fiber Garden and spinning friends for a weekend of spinning in the beautiful North woods of Wisconsin! This retreat is an opportunity to gather as a spinning community, working at your own skill level on projects of your choice. Deb will be there to coach, guide, and provide encouragement. There is no agenda for this weekend...just come and enjoy doing whatever you want, whenever you want! You may choose to work on spinning yarn for a specific project, experimenting with new fibers, exploring novelty yarns, or just pulling fibers out of your stash. Bring your own fibers, or purchase them at the retreat from Deb’s “fiber shop” that will be on-site. Bring your own wheel or rent one from the Fiber Garden for a small fee. The only pre-requisite for the retreat is that you have some beginning spinning experience. You do not need to be an experienced spinner...\"early career\" spinners are welcome and encouraged!

A $100 deposit is required to reserve your space. The balance of the fee will be due on October 1.  Retreat fees include lodging, all meals, use of Treehaven facilities and trails, and a special gift! Commuters are also welcome for a reduced fee which will include lunch and dinner each day. You will have a choice of arriving on Thursday evening or Friday evening. Cancellations received prior to October 1 will receive a refund of any fees paid, less a $30 administrative fee.
