June 2013 Northridge Knitting retreat!

So there has been TONS of buzz about our upcoming 2013 knitting retreat with Candace Eisner Strick as our guest teacher! Shall we talk about a few more details? Well registration is open and we are hoping to have 21 people in attendance with us this year. Sign ups are happening quickly and spaces are limited.

Our knitting retreats are always a blast and truly memorable experiences. Getting together with all kinds of knitters for a weekend of knitting, fun, food, prizes, games and laughs... what could be better? Well throw Candace Eisner Strick in to the mix and you'll be in STITCHES! Pun intended. The Northridge Inn and Resort in Sundrige, Ontario is the perfect lo
cation for this weekend getaway. Nestled in the wilderness on Bernard lake, the atmosphere is relaxed and serene. The Northride Inn is owned and operated by Michael and Brenda- family owned and family run, this is what we love. These two are a remarkable team! They are always there to do absolutely anything they can to accommodate everyone's needs- whether that be making sure there is gluten-free bread available for those with an intolerance or bringing us fresh baked goods for snacks. They are always around and always willing to go above and beyond to make this a memorable stay for all.

We have a beautiful conference room to hold all of our classes in and we also set up a market table with yarns, notions, the designers books and kits for you to peruse while we are there. What a great opportunity to try something new!

Candace Eisner Strick is an incredible designer, teacher and somewhat of a knitting comedian. She designs these incredibly beautiful stranded merging colours shawls, scarves, sweaters and other accessories. Candace is a top choice teacher at events such as Stitches and Vogue Knitting Live and she was thrilled to be able to make her way up to the great white north for our retreat. Check out her website HERE or at and check out her design photos below.

We will arrive for dinner Thursday night then have some show and tell afterwards and get to know each other and discuss an overview of the weekend. We will have 2 classes on Friday- 1 morning and 1 afternoon with and an OPTIONAL evening class, a full day class on Saturday and a half day class on Sunday. Class selections are up to YOU! If you are interested in looking through a list of available classes please let me know and I will forward that information along to you. Please advise me with your top five options.

Your cost includes:

  • 3 night's accommodation at The Northridge Inn and Resort- double occupency (2 students per room)
  • 3 meals per day plus 2 snacks per day
  • 2.5 days of instruction from Candace and a few optional evening classes as well
  • A gift bag full of fun surprises, treats and samples
  • Endless amounts of FUN!!
We will have a weekend game in order for every student to get their door prizes- which everyone will get! Last year we did a scavenger hunt and I have some fun ideas for this year!

Here is what the resort offers:

  • An outdoor swimming pool
  • A sauna and hot tub
  • Tennis court and volleyball net
  • Kayaks and canoes
  • Every room has 2 queen beds, a TV, a fireplace, a sitting area and a view of the lake.
  • The lake is steps away from the lodge and has a beautiful beach area.
  • The resort has an outdoor patio for meals or to sit, knit and enjoy.
The cost is $770 which covers everything and HST is included in that already as well. This is based on a double room occupancy meaning two students to a room. Some are already coming with someone and some are coming alone- if that's the case, I'll do my best to set you up with a suitable roommate which I seem to have done quite well with last year! If you require a single room, please let me know as soon as possible and note that there is an extra fee for single accommodations.

Trust me- this is an event you WON'T want to miss and if you do, you'll be very sad you did!
