Northridge knitting retreat June 2013 with Candace Eisner Strick!

We are very lucky to have booked our 2013 retreat so quickly and with such a great teacher! We have once again booked our retreat at the fabulous Northridge Inn and Resort in Sundridge, Ontario. The perfect getaway for a weekend full of food, fun and knitting. The Northridge Inn is a family owned and operated business that is nestled in on the edge of Lake Bernard. It is a perfect escape from reality since it is not too far North, or South but with all the wilderness that surrounds you, you feel like you are in a different world. They have top notch dining that is truly out of this world delicious and the owners, Brenda and Michael, are always around to make sure all of your needs are met. We have a great conference room to hold our classes in and to set up some great market tables with new yarns, kits and patterns from our teacher, Candace.

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
