Susan Mills!

We are delighted Susan Mills will be joining us again this year as our guest designer and instructor!  Susan's knowledge and skill as a knitting designer and industry insider has brought a depth to her teaching that is unparalleled.


Susan is the Creative Director for Classic Elite Yarns.  On this year's retreat she will be teaching from the iconic projects of Elizabeth Zimmerman and leading us through her work using Classic Elite Yarns.  As always, Susan will share her skills, tips, and experience with us while addressing all skill levels in her very easy approachable style. 

Also this year...

Melora...  will lead us in two daily yoga sessions, suitable for all levels of students.  Her morning class will flow with a theme woven through the postures helping us understand movement and alignment while enjoying the freedom and radiance generated by an active practice.  Her second, not-to-be-missed afternoon class will include deeply restorative poses to relax and de-stress based upon therapeutic yoga postures to help those with injuries, stretches to relieve fatigue from hiking or knitting!

Mary Alice... will treat every one of us to an amazing hour long full body massage.  As only a truly experienced and intuitive body worker can, she will relieve you of tension, aches and pains with sensitivity and care.


Spike... our staff writer and marketer who writes our fun blog about her experiences, projects and musing about all things knitting.


This year's crawl home..!

     Every year we take the long way 'home' to Portland through some of the best fiber venues Southern Maine has to offer.  We have visited farms, shops, designers and spinners along the way.  This year we will head straight back to Portland to spend time in the big city!  First we will visit Tess's and then Knit Wit but not before recharging ourselves with lobster rolls along Route 1.
