2018 Summer Retreats

Both our knitting retreats in Switzerland in the heart of Europe, are tailored to the knitter and fiber arts enthusiast desiring a bit of travel and gentle adventure along with enriching their knitting and stitching skills.

Do you yearn for a getaway that allows you to be YOU? To relax while doing the things you love. Sleep early or stay up late knitting, the choice is yours!

Our retreats flow with a gentle and easy pace, and have ample free time for reflection and, of course, knitting and stitching built into the mix.

Chose from historic, enriching, relaxing for our purely knitting oriented retreat or the active, exhilarating and energizing mountain adventure featuring knitting and slow stitching classes to expand your horizon of fiber arts.
