Knitting retreat with Shirley Paden!

The retreat will take place Thursday June 21 through to Sunday June 24 at the Northridge Inn in Sundridge, Ontario!

We will be arriving for dinner on Thursday then will have a fun evening to follow where we will get to know each other a bit better. Classes will begin after breakfast on Friday morning and we will do a full day of class Friday and Saturday and will have a half day on Sunday with lunch to follow as our last meal before everyone heads home.

Shirley and I have been discussing which classes would be interesting to teach at the retreat. We are going to mix it up with a few different classes including a collection of cast ons, cardigan construction and a finishing class.

We have finalized the cost for the retreat as well! The cost will be $765 INCLUDING HST. The only cost beyond this is your weekend funny money for the market tables that I will have set up in our conference room and rentals for canoes, kayaks and other water toys. As we did this year, a $200 NON REFUNDABLE deposit is required to hold your spot with the balance of $565 due Saturday April 21, 2012. We are most definitely able to arrange payment plans for whatever you are comfortable with ie. weekly, monthly, bi- monthly… whatever you like! Christmas is coming and gift certificates for the retreat make good gift ideas!

I am very confident that this retreat will sell out quickly this year which will make it fantastic! When you do confirm your spot I will email you a little contract with all the “technical” details to confirm.

So a quick price breakdown of what your cost includes….

  • 3 nights accommodations at the Northridge Inn Resort
  • 2 1/2 days of knitting instruction from Shirley Paden
  • Dinner Thursday night, 3 full meals and 2 snacks Friday and Saturday then breakfast, lunch and snack on Sunday.
  • AWESOME Gift bags for each student
  • SUPER AWESOME Door prizes for each student
  • Endless amounts of fun, laughs and entertainment!

We will most definitely have show and tell for the whole group and we will have evening entertainment games and you will have the opportunity to explore the grounds which include...
  • A pool/lounge area
  • A hot tub
  • Tennis courts
  • A large concrete dock (great for knit nights!)
  • A gorgeous outdoor patio
  • A large indoor dining room
  • A gym and Sauna 
  • A beautiful sandy beach 
  • Campfire pit 
  • Indoor bar/lounge

The Inn is located right beside Lake Bernard, literally it is just a few feet from the water front. All rooms have a view of the lakefront and they all have 2 queen sized beds, a fireplace, a sitting area and a bathroom. Rooms will accommodate 2 people- If you have a friend that you will be coming with then I will definitely put you in a room with them and will also take requests for roommates (if you don’t have one already) based on personalities and sleeping routines.
I am incredibly excited for this event and we are so incredibly lucky to have such an amazing designer to be our guest teacher for the weekend. This is going to be an incredible experience that you won’t want to miss!If you have more questions don’t hesitate to let me know!
