What started with a group of sixteen knitters who wanted to "get away and knit" has grown into a popular event for forty plus students, filled with fun, friends, and learning. We've added national guest instructors to each retreat, so that our retreaters get inspiration from experts in our field as well as learning new skills. We also get inspired from each other's creations and ideas coming from our knitting passion!

Our retreat participants form special friendships that go beyond our weekend together.
We have so much fun, it's hard to leave. Here are some of the comments this year's retreaters have had:
"I want to thank you and the staff at Skein Lane for making my first knitter's retreat a most pleasurable experience...I'll mark my calendar for next year!"
"The retreat was so much fun. Just what I needed as a break from my hectic life. Thank you for your work in organizing such a great event for us all..."
"Chris Bylsma was fabulous; we all enjoyed her so much."
"Thank you Skein Lane and everyone else for creating such a wonderful weekend. Can we do it again this weekend?"
