We are pleased to introduce our very first Yarn Durango Retreat! This three-night retreat will take place about an hour away from Durango in the lovely town of Dolores, Colorado. We have collaborated with Kathy Butler to bring you a very exclusive experience available to the first six people who sign up. Kathy owns and operates The Nature Center in Dolores that features hiking trails, alpacas, a welcome center, and an awesome weaving studio where the retreat classes will be held. She also owns and operates Critter Mountain Ranch, which is also in Dolores, and is where we will be spending the three nights for the retreat.
The retreat is an all-inclusive adventure featuring three nights’ accommodation at Critter Mountain Ranch and includes breakfast and lunch (be sure to let us know if you have any food restrictions or allergies), a tour of The Nature Center facilities, and six hours of weaving class instruction with Kathy split up into two days. The finished project will be a beautiful woven scarf with alpaca yarn from Kathy’s own alpacas. Don’t worry, Kathy will have the looms set up for you already. This is a great time to dip your toes into the world of weaving with some friends.
Critter Mountain Ranch is a 1600 square foot ranch home that has been split up into accommodations appropriate for up to 8 people. It is possible for everyone for have their own bed, however, if two friends are willing to share a queen in the master bedroom, they will each receive a $25 gift certificate to Yarn Durango. We also are giving away gift bags as a bonus to all participants.
Evenings will be free for everybody to go down to the quaint town of Dolores and enjoy some local food as a group. Shannon Hamlin, owner of Yarn Durango, and Joy Caldwell will be staying at Critter Mountain Ranch with you to make sure you are well supplied in food, fiber, and fun. The retreat will be three nights starting Thursday, October 18th. Check out will be Sunday, October 21st. The price is $440 per person and available to the first 6 people who sign up. Call Yarn Durango today to sign up for the retreat so you won’t miss out on this exclusive retreat experience!
