For the Winter 2022 Crazy for Ewe Retreat, Brandon Mably, Kaffe Fassett’s long time partner and co-author of Knitting with the Color Guys, will be joining us via zoom from the home studio he shares with Kaffe. Brandon brings a joyful and inspiring approach to color to empower us as we play and learn. He is so warm and real - I can’t wait to introduce him to you at this event . You'll have a chance not only to hear him speak, but to ask questions and interact with him directly. Brandon is just a delight, and you will come away inspired and confident.
The retreat features not only this presentation and conversation with Brandon, but a workshop the rest of the day Saturday where you can play with colors, try out the ideas and inspirations you learned, and apply them in a swatch or in your own full-scale project.
The retreat begins Friday evening at 5pm with a wine and cheese reception, followed by dinner together at the Front Porch. After dinner we’ll gather at the shop for dessert and a yarn tasting.
Saturday is Brandon and our workshop. We’ll break for a yummy lunch catered by Quality Street. We'll be on our own for dinner Saturday night. We have lots of great restaurants in town, from NY style pizza at The Slice House to trendy upscale dining at Sweetbay.
Sunday we’ll have a Show and Share brunch at the shop - always a highlight of the retreat - bring your best FOs to show off - you'll never have a more appreciative audience! If you don't have to rush off, feel free to hang out at the shop and knit or visit the town.
I have several exclusive trunk shows for the weekend with garments from Kaffe Fassett, Brandon Mably, and Kim Hargreaves.
It's going to be super special and exciting weekend of color, creativity, and community.
I've reserved a block of rooms so you can choose whether you want to stay in town or head home and sleep in your own bed each night. There are 15 rooms in our hotel block - a mix of king and double rooms. You can book your room here
It's going to be wonderful! Friday, February 25-Sunday, February 27
Sound like fun? It's going to be awesome! Can't wait to see you!
