What to look forward to at Stitches, S'Mores & More

Stitches, S'Mores & More is a knitting and fiber arts retreat that begins on Thursday evening and ends on Sunday afternoon. The 2019 dates are Thursday, September 26th through Sunday, September 29th.


Thursday

When you arrive, you'll check in, get your name tag, goodie bag, meet other attendees and choose your cabin (Early Birds, Night Owls or Other Sleeping Cabin). You'll then unload your car, choose a bunk and get settled. Then, grab a project and join everyone either in the Dining Hall or Conference Center. Dinner this evening is a relaxed meal with everyone getting to know each other as well as renew friendships from prior years. Feel free to knit as long as you like!


Friday

If you are an Early Riser, you can meet fellow attendees in the Conference Center for coffee/tea and open knitting time. Breakfast is usually around 8AM. Classes begin about 9 or 9:30 and continue for three hours. Lunch will follow the morning classes. The afternoon classes begin sometime after lunch and go for three hours. If you don't want to attend a class, you can sit and work on a project, take a nap, whatever! It's your time! In the evening we'll have dinner followed by open knitting time. Again, you can stay up as late as you want.


Saturday

Saturday is similar to Friday in the morning. We are working on a field trip to Independence Fiber Mill that will take all day Saturday. We'll leave after breakfast and head to the mill. While at the mill we'll get a tour, have lunch then have a class in the afternoon. After class finishes up we'll head back to Crossroads for dinner and open knitting time.


Sunday

Sunday morning is like Friday morning with breakfast and a class. Lunch is a buffet leftovers from the meals and snacks we've had through the retreat. We finish up the day with prizes and drawings. You can pack up your car whenever is convenient for you. The retreat ends by 2.
