2020 Yarnaholic Retreat
Welcome to our second annual yarnaholic retreat - October 17 - 18, 2020. We are so excited to plan another fun yarn retreat in Lincoln, NE.
This year's retreat will feature a special teacher and author, Cori Eichelberger, who will be here to teach her very popular 50 Shades of Sweaters Workshop. This workshop covers everything you need to know about knitting sweaters and making them fit you. She has 60 construction styles of sweaters that will be available for trying on, helping with yarn choices and offers a variety of how-to fixes for the common sweater mishaps.
There is a VIP dinner with Cori offered on Friday night (Oct. 16th) - 8 dinner spots available. Come enjoy a private dinner with Cori and enjoy a swag bag too! This is an extra cost in addition to the retreat.
Second Workshop - Double Knitting - This workshop will be taught by Mittra Nguyen and all yarn will be provided in your goodie bag. Double knitting creates a two layer fabric with knit stitches on both sides. The finished fabric is completely reversible, leading to colorwork if two contrast colors are used and the completed project is twice as warm!
Third Workshop - Silk Scarf Dyeing Tutorial - Who doesn't love a good silk scarf? So let's make our own unique scarf and learn how to dye one with Mittra at the shop on Sunday. All supplies will be included - plan on wearing clothes that can get messy (in case of accidents).
Saturday Night - Cori will be hosting her very fun interactive game, Skeins to Skeins so get your knitting trivia hat on! Prizes will be given out to the winner or winners.
Mittra will also be providing another game to play after Skeins to Skeins - game to be announced at the retreat.
This retreat includes all three workshops, all meals on Saturday and Sunday breakfast & light lunch. Last year's goodie bag was pretty great so this year's goodie bag will not disappoint either.
This year's retreat location is at the Staybridge Suites (located near 27th street & interstate 80). Hotel stay is not required and recommended for long distance travelers. Room sharing is available for those who would like to stay Saturday night. Friday night stay is extra and will need to be booked separately by you.
