Extra Fun Stuff!

Just to add to the overall ‘awesome’ of our Annual Retreat we have some extra fun events for you. We know you’re going to love them!

Fashion Parade

Do you fancy yourself sashaying around in Libby’s knitted sweaters, shawls or hats? Well you could be! Libby Jonson has such beautiful designs and some lucky folk will take to the catwalk to model them for us. We will be having a fashion parade of Libby’s finished designs and Libby will chat to us about them. After the parade they will be available for trying on. We’ve no doubt you will fall in love with more than one piece!

Creating Our Own Special Yarn

Have you ever wanted to play with fibre and create a yarn? Well, we are going to do just that! We’ll all have an input into creating a special Wool Gathering 2018 yarn. What colour will it be? Weight? Twist? Thanks to the uber talented and lovely Nick and Isabel from The Great Ocean Road Woollen Mill we can start with fibre and end with yarn. How fab is that?

Treasure Hunt

Our treasure hunt will bring out the sleuth in you! Some answers are easy to find and some require a little extra digging. The prizes are great and, thanks to our sponsors, plentiful.

Guest Speaker

Our community is such a warm and welcoming one. One of generous and caring spirit. It is a privilege to be able to extend that largesse to others. Our guest speaker will talk to us of those who require our warmth and generosity. Wool Gathering will always have a philanthropic aspect. We hope that you will get behind us and warmly welcome our guest speaker.

Market Place

Fancy a little shopping? a lot of shopping? Well, last retreat our Teachers and Sponsors Market Place was sooooo popular! And so it’s back this retreat too! We’ll announce who the vendors will be a little later. Don’t forget to bring an extra bag with you just in case you need it 😉
