I got a really nifty email yesterday ... a spinning friend of mine is looking for interest in holding a fibre retreat weekend at White Point Beach Resort this Winter/Spring! She's "testing the waters" to see if there is any interest and asked that I send the info out to all my fibre friends (so I am posting it here and have put in a few of the local groups I belong to on Ravelry) - she sent this to a network of fibre enthusiasts that she knows too, and asked them to all pass it along to their fibre friends ... it could be a wild, woolly weekend!
The retreat is for anyone who enjoys working with fibre - knitters, crocheters, spinners, rug hookers, weavers, any fibre fans! It will take place at White Point Beach Resort, near Liverpool, NS, Canada ... so getting here is a consideration, but would be a fantastic getaway for people from throughout the Maritimes (Liverpool is about an hour and a half from Halifax, Wolfville and Shelburne, and 2 hours from Yarmouth, Truro and Digby).
If you are interested in taking part, or think you'd attend if it were to happen, please put a comment in my comments, and I'll send the info along to my friend (or I will email you her contact info -- just don't want to post her email address on the web for all the loonies to get hold of and spam her!). It sounds really cool, and who knows, if it is a hit this year, maybe it’ll be an annual thing!
Here is the note she sent out, with a bit more info than I gave .....
TO ALL SPINNERS, HOOKERS, KNITTERS, & WEAVERS
All us fibre folk in the Maritimes…
Please let me know if you would be interested in attending a Fibre Arts Retreat at White Point Beach Resort, Nova Scotia…
The tentative dates could be March 27 – 29 (two nights) or April 3 – 5th (two nights).
This is NOT a structured event - - just relax ~ Spin ~ Knit ~ Hook ~ Weave ~ chat and of course eat!!!
White Point has a spa, exercise room, indoor pool, etc.
Please let me know ASAP so we will know whether to pursue this further… We need to let White Point know soon approximately how many people will be attending, so we can discuss with them the dates, facilities, etc. and prices.
Looking forward to hearing from you in the near future.
P.S. so that we don’t miss anyone – please pass this around to your fibre friends!
