make. wear. love. (a sweater retreat for handknitters)

We’re so happy to announce the second annual make. wear. love. retreat, which will return to Sebasco Harbor Resort, on the lovely Maine Coast, from September 25-28, 2014.

9 19 07_0200

make. wear. love. will still be focused on sweaters (no surprise there!), but with a slightly different twist this year. Since we released CustomFit, which addresses the fitting issues surrounding a sweater, we’ve had so many people ask us about all the other things that go into making successful knitwear.

This retreat is our answer.

Come join us to further your own making journey, and explore our craft in depth. Connect with your instructors and fellow attendees while enjoying Sebasco’s intimate, gorgeous location. Bond over a delicious meal while you discuss how to make truly exceptional sweaters.

We’ll dive deep on fabric & fiber, technique & finishing, and the things that go into “tricking out” a sweater:  inserting stitch patterns, working in multiple gauges, shaping in pattern, and more. In addition to Amy’s sweater, fit, & body expertise, we’re so excited to be working with experts Clara Parkes, Patty Lyons, Gwen Bortner, and Kim McBrien Evans to bring breadth & depth to these topics.

We’re changing up the format a bit, so that in addition to wonderful classes, there is ample opportunity for one-on-one interaction with Amy and our instructors, as well as plenty of time to knit with friends on the beautiful resort grounds.

We’re so excited about this and can’t wait to share not only class time, but individual instruction and knitting with you all.

What to know more? The full details can be found in our retreat brochure.

This year we are delaying the opening of registration because we want people to have time to choose classes, talk to family & friends, make plans, sort out travel and/or child care arrangements, etc. without the pressure of acting immediately.

Registration will open Friday, April 18th at 12pm Eastern through an online form right here on this site. Read the brochure for complete registration instructions.

We hope you’ll join us!

    The retreat sounds heavenly. Could you clarify the schedule? What time does the retreat end on Sunday? Thanks!

      Hi Karen, the retreat ends after lunch on Sunday. You should plan on being at the resort until about 3:00 pm. Of course, you are welcome to stay overnight on Sunday if you prefer, and the group rate will extend until that time!

    Looking forward to attending the retreat. My husband said he will volunteer as the official photog!

    Ok, all is well, I am just not always that savvy and it took clearing cookies and a switch to another browser to make it work (was on Chrome, went to IE and looks like I am in). Whew!!

    Excited to come! I am bringing my non-knitting mom. What is the promo code for the retreat or will they just know it’s for the retreat when I book online and I should leave it blank?
    Thanks! Looking forward to it!
