Next date will be 22nd - 26th Feb 2024 - booking available soon
Fancy getting away and doing something that is just for you? Want to spend all day knitting, chatting and eating in the company of friends old and new?
Then we are excited to offer our first ever knitting retreat here in our beautiful seaside home town of Falmouth.
Tell me more.....
When was the last time you did something just for yourself? It's probably longer ago than you think.
Our retreat will be the perfect place to come to escape and restore your equillibrium, to relax, sit and knit or crochet, eating great food together with other people who want to do just that. And you will have the stunning coastline and bustling town on your doorstep if you want some bracing fresh air, or want to brave a winter swim. This retreat is located in one of the most scenic places along the Cornish Coast and is for 4 nights all inclusive.
You will be in for a wonderful few days dedicated to you and your yarnie project. There will be expert knitters and crocheters on hand to help you with your projects, and if they don't know the answer (they will) someone in the group will jump in to help, or share their experience.
You can also visit the shop to stock up on supplies!
