Sisu Fall Knitting Retreat

From Friday, September 29, 2017 to Sunday, October 1, 2017 September 29, 2017 October 1, 2017 Grand Ely Lodge

All Day

Camp Widjiwagan is located about 20 minutes outside of Ely on the Echo Trail. Cabins are somewhat rustic with bunk beds (we only use the bottom bunks). There is a common gathering area in each cabin with comfortable furniture and a fireplace. There are two bathrooms in each cabin. The shower house is a short walk.

We gather and knit in the Sigurd Olson Center (S.O.C). It is a beautiful log cabin with a stone fireplace nestled in the woods, a short distance from the Burntside Lake. The main area of this building is large enough for us to gather and set up the yarn shop.

For the Fall retreat, we do have a specific project that is taught. The project is always optional. Everyone is always welcome to bring new or unfinished projects to work on during the week-end.  A massage therapist is also available for the week-end. (His wife is a knitter and he is a great massage therapist – lucky us).

This retreat runs from Friday evening through Sunday afternoon, September 29 – October 1, 2017.
