Well this is a little unusual for us, a fall edition of the Wakefield Knitting Retreat! Our usual spot in May was booked so we opted for late September, one of the most beautiful times of the year in the Gatineau Hills. The retreat will once again be held at the Barn, surrounded by fields, woods and gorgeous vistas. If you want to see pictures of the lovely old place, have a look at their web site: the-barn.ca
Saturday (Kathryn): Yarn Dyeing
In this workshop you will learn how to create fabulous painted yarn with professional acid dyes. The colours you can achieve are brilliant and endless! Acid dyes use citric acid, which is a food safe acid. You will learn to paint self-striping multi-coloured yarn, and kettle dye using common kitchen tools, like a crock-pot.
If you would like to join us this year, please email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) to let us know, then send us a cheque for $100 for a deposit and a post dated cheque for the balance ($200) and we’ll reserve you a spot. The maximum number of participants is 15. Please make the cheques out to JULIE NANDORFY and mail them to Maureen Marcotte at 26 Sully Rd. Wakefield Qc J0X 3G0. We really hope to meet old friends and to make new ones!
