November 13-15, 2015 in Sapphire, North Carolina
The fall Carolina Fiber Frolic Retreat is all retreat! Bring what you would like to work on and receive support, encouragement and time to enjoy your crafting.
Our goal: minimal scheduling, maximum fun, relaxation, and an all around creative, supportive environment. A great venue, buffet style meals, new and familiar fiber friends all together in one place; life doesn’t get any better than that for fiber lovers!
Come by yourself, or bring family / friends, but plan to make new friends when you arrive. Bring your spindle, wheel, knitting needles, crochet hooks, felting supplies, and/or portable loom.
Spend the weekend relaxing, spinning, weaving, knitting, crocheting, and enjoying this great retreat in the North Carolina mountains!
Registration is limited, so register early to ensure your spot. If the retreat fills before your registration is received, you will be issued a full refund.
The retreat fee includes access to the retreat center, Friday Lunch and Dinner, Saturday Lunch and Dinner, Coffee and Tea, and Happy Hour both evenings.
Cancellations received in writing before October 1st are eligible for a 75% refund of registration fees. Fees are non-refundable after October 15th.
Sales Opportunity: We don’t have commercial vendors at the Fall Retreat, so this provides an opportunity for All Participants to bring items from their stash that they no longer plan to use, OR other items you make: jewelry, handmade books, handspun yarn, photographs, hats, project bags, shawl pins, homemade jam, etc. We’ll provide tables for display and sales (time TBD). Start looking through your stash and craft room and start planning what you’ll bring.
A Limited number of Fall 2015 Carolina Fiber Frolic Retreat Project Bags will be available for pre-order (sneak peek image below). The fall 2015 retreat bags are a generous size suitable for a large shawl project, a sweater, or several smaller WIPs so you have project options when you’re out and about. The bag comfortably holds 600 grams of yarn. The primary fabric is a decorator weight woven chevron design, the base & handle (on a swivel clasp) is a deep purple hand-dyed hemp twill, the lining is a durable neutral color fabric, and each bag will have a small pocket for stashing stitch markers, tape measure, yarn labels, etc. They have purple zippers, and a special Carolina Fiber Frolic Fall 2015 tag. If you would like to have one waiting for you when you arrive, please indicate that on your registration form.
Hope you’ll be able to join the Frolic in the mountains this November 13-15!
