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.com 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.

Cloud 9 Knitting Retreat Coming Together

This summer, we are re-launching our Cloud 9 retreat – this time as a knitting only event. What is a knitting retreat? Well, for us it’s bringing together a couple of national instructors, Patty Lyons and Melissa Leapman,

for a weekend of classes at a location outside of our store, where knitters can learn, socialize, relax, and above all have fun!

The Cloud 9 Knitting Retreat will be held July 13-15. We’re still finalizing our class selections and the location, but here’s a run down of what we are hoping to do:

We’re planning on having everything finalized and ready for registrations by March 25, so keep your eyes on our Facebook page and our newsletter. Or, if you would like us to call you to let you know when it’s all ready to go, email Laura and ask to be put on our interest list.
