Crafting Retreat

Kathy found this interesting opportunity and we started having a discussion about it.

Archival Inn bills itself as a self-lead retreat center in Holland, Michigan. It is a house with a big kitchen that is set up as a rental for hosting retreats. It is marketed to a scrapbooking crowd, but the way the room is laid out, you could do lots of different activities.

With a work space like that you do sewing, knitting, quilting… The only limitation would be sewing machines for your guests that were flying in.

Have you ever done a retreat? Knitting? Sewing? Writing?  Would you ever want to?
Here is a little list of Crafting Cruises for you to ponder.
Or, there is always an Iceland Knitting Tour.

Happy 2013. There is some planning to be done!

      • Though I can see why they don’t. You’d have to teach people to use the particular machine & then there is the maintenance. Wouldn’t it be fun to have a Just Crafty Enough retreat though?!

    • Ok, after visiting Iceland last year, I REALLY want to do an Icelandic Knitting Tour. The one with the Textile Museum sounds wonderful…or the Knitting with the Elves.

    • I save up all year to go to Squam. It is a wonderful experience and a terrific retreat that is definitely multicraftual. This year they have writing, photography, knitting, sewing, card weaving, crochet, painting, woodworking and basket weaving. And possibly something I forgot in the process. I’m exhausted (and excited) just thinking about it.
