Enjoy a delightful and artistic getaway in Vermont during our most glorious season – fall foliage. Though we can never predict exactly when the fall colors will be at their peak, they are always gorgeous! You can punch to your heart’s content and we'll also take time to explore some of the back roads with the best mountain views and fall colors. (Leaf peeping is optional – we know some of you won’t want to stop punching!) Start something new or bring a work in progress for us to help you with. Click here for some project ideas. Amy will consult with you ahead of time to talk about what you’d like to work on. This retreat includes an optional day with Heidi to learn to dye variegated Violet Jane rug yarns. You can start by learning to dye one skein and stop there or continue dyeing to your heart’s content. Our professional masseuse will visit mid-week for anyone who's interested. Cost: $1 per minute. Sign up when you arrive for 15-60 minutes.
Materials Fee For The Retreat: Will vary depending on project chosen.
Materials Fee For Dye Day: $7 for each 4 oz. skein you dye ($6.50 for the natural yarn and 50¢ for the dye materials).
A supply list will be provided upon registration.
