 BOOKINGS ARE OPEN FOR A DAY IN NAPA ON JANUARY 20, 2019

Join us from 10:00am - 4:00pm in the heart of the Napa Valley

Spend the day with Brooke Sinnes of Sincere Sheep and Sloane Rosenthal of Sloane Rosenthal Knits learning and having fun. We will explore the magical intersection of yarn and design together in an extraordinary home in Napa.

Local fiber artists, Sloane Rosenthal (www.tightlyknitdesigns.com) and Brooke Sinnes (www.sinceresheep.com) are a great example of the alchemy between a yarn producer and knitwear designer. Their collaboration informed the recent capsule "Wine Country Knits" as well as many other pieces.  We will enjoy learning more about all that goes into such a partnership, review how this can result in a design especially created for you. Then - we cast on together.

Napa chef, Julii Ashby, will prepare our lunch with ingredients gleaned at the Farmer’s Market in the morning for a full wine country experience!

What’s included:

Instruction, yarn and pattern, lunch and all snacks and refreshments at an exclusive Napa location.

Cost per participant: $450.00

This event is designed to be interactive and intimate, so space is limited. Any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me gayle@pacificknittingretreats.com

 EXPANDING IN 2019

Pacific Knitting Retreats is growing to include more ways to enjoy small group experiences that build skills, deepen understanding and strengthen community connections. Along with our in-depth multi-day Retreats, these will include:

  • Weekly Knitting Workshops

  • Seasonal Knitalongs: Choose a project that will facilitate you learning the skills you aspire to! We will select pattern and yarn together that inspires you to extend yourself - and then over three months we will meet once a month as a group (and in between as needed!) to bring your project to life

  • Special Events including pop ups, One Day Mini Retreats and Field Trips
