Yarn Durango Spring Retreat 2019
If you missed our first ever Yarn Durango Retreat in October 2018, we have another one planned. The date is TBA, but here’s the info and some pics from the first 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 five 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 close to The Nature Center, 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 most meals, (be sure to let us know if you have food allergies), a tour of The Nature Center facilities, and three days of studio time/class instruction. 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 5 people. Joy Caldwell will be your hostess for the retreat. Price is also TBD. Keep looking as we get closer to Spring 2019!
