    I'm planning on getting there before 6pm (want to beat the Friday traffic as much as possible coming from the city). Just wondering if anybody else would be, and what plans are for supper as it won't be provided. (Bringing something, heading out to one of the near by towns?)

      I'm getting excited too but I was sure sad to hear Shelly can't come.

      Laura, I'm with you about thinking more about what yarn and snacks to bring than clothes (though I do like the idea of jammies all weekend). I'm really sorry Shelly can't come as well.

    Hi all, I am able to bring my yarn swift and ball winder with me for the weekend, if anyone has hanks that they wish to wind. Let me know if you want me to pack it.
    Really excited about this retreat.......

    • Linda M.

      Hi, Ros. Was thinking of bringing mine, but if you bring yours I won't. (Nicer to wind yarn if there's company.) They'll keep my wheel company.

    Starting to excited - a whole weekend away from home and the dog! I'm already starting to decide what to take (more yarn than clothes) as I wasn't well prepared last year. I'll be taking my wheel if anybody wants to try it out.
