Wine & Wool In The County – A Knitting Retreat!

jacksons fallsWe are putting together our first ever Knit Retreat and we are so excited to invite you all to come and enjoy a fabulous weekend in beautiful Prince Edward County, the capital of fabulous food and wine for eastern Ontario.

There will be classes each day being taught by Robin Hunter and Elizabeth McCarten.  Robin has been knitting her whole life, so long she has no recollection of learning. She brings her extensive background in sewing, tailoring, pattern drafting and millinery to her designs and to share with students. Elizabeth McCarten is a top knit designer and has created amazing and beautiful garments with the patterns available on Ravelry. Both of these ladies have also been showcased in Vogue knitting magazines for their talent and designs.

Jackson’s Falls Country Inn is built around the original old school house for the area and is filled with old artifacts from the school house including the original chalkboards and maps. There is a wood stove to cuddle up next too and a friendly dog that likes to wander in for an occasional pat.

All the rooms are set up to be a shared occupancy so tell us in the registration form who you will be rooming with.

We have also invited a few vendors to join us and show us their wares on the Saturday so bring along some cash for a yarn treat to take home. Silver Cloud Alpacas, Anwyn Yarns and us of course Rosehaven Yarn Shop.

  1. Just wanted to say Thank You for such a great time. It was great making new friends and also for being with my friend Louise. What a great time.
    Hopefully we get first dibs on the retreat next year as I look forward to taking it again.
    As for the courses, not certain what course would be good. I’m always game to learning something new!
