2nd (Annual???) Cloud 9 Knitting Retreat

We’re working furiously to get all of the details pinned down for our 2nd Cloud 9 Knitting Retreat! We’re happy to announce that Kate Atherley and Keith Leonard have agreed to come and teach for us.


Kate Atherley is the technical editor for Knitty.comย and is a seasoned designer and teacher of all things knitterly. Known for her attention to detail in her patterns and her classes, she regularly teaches at stores and events across North America, including Interweave YarnFest and Vogue Knitting Live. Her work has appeared in many books and magazines.

Keith Leonard gained a love for knitting at the age of eleven when he joined a lunchtime knitting program in his hometown of Haworth, New York. After working at four yarn stores, he realized that there was no specialized service for knitwear finishing and took the initiative to start his own professional finishing service, Knits All Done. He now travels the country teaching classes while selling his custom Zen Yarn Garden yarns and colors and Soulwool from Israel (and, yes, we will have a trunk show of his yarns at Cloud 9).

Kate and Keith will both teach four classes at Cloud 9, plus Kate will give us her The Good, The Bad, The Ugly presentation as a kick-off on Friday evening. Here is the planned schedule for 2019.


We hope to have the details ironed out within the next week. Make sure you are one of the first to be able to sign up! Just say you want to be on Cloud 9 Interest List in the comments below (include your email address or phone number), and we’ll let you know when registration is available. People on the interest list will get a few days to sign up before the rest of the world!

  1. I am interested in learning more. Please add me to your “interested list” This comment form was weird, asking me to sign in to my wordpress account (I haven’t used in years!) – anyway, my email is amy AT wholesalelocks DOT com


    1. Amy – Because you signed in under the Minnesota Knitters Guild account (I guess that’s your WordPress account?), I don’t know your last name to add to the list. In the meantime, I’ve got your email address and first name, but if you could respond with your last name, I’d appreciate it ๐Ÿ™‚



    1. Linda – Initially, we will only be open for full package participants; however, if there are still spaces left after April 15, we will open up Saturday Only, Sunday Only, and Single Class packages. We will announce that in our newsletter when/if it happens.
