Heritage Knitting Retreat                           (back)

RiverBank Lodge

Peterburg, Illinois


One of the things we love as crafters and artisans is the connection our crafts give us to the past. The same stitches that inspired and excited our ancestors inspire and excite us and will do the same for those who come after us.

The Heritage Knitting Retreat will be an opportunity to explore the patterns and techniques of past generations.

Focusing on the latter part of the 19th century, we’ll draw inspiration from actual and revised patterns and the many resources of beautiful and historic Central Illinois.

Some of the things we’ll look at are:
Knitting Techniques
Finding modern materials to fit heritage patterns
How to read heritage patterns
Heritage patterns to knit
Heritage pattern resources

The fees for the weekend are $195 plus hotel. This fee includes all meals for participants from Friday night to Sunday lunch as well all conference materials. To register, drop us an email and we’ll get you signed up. The RiverBank Lodge can be contacted directly to book accommodation. Download the printable flyer for a registration form.

You can pm WandaGrayson if you have other questions.
