Drawn to the Light Shared Occupancy
Join us for our first ever Tolt Retreat! Held at the glorious Sleeping Lady Resort in Leavenworth, Washington, Thursday, September 28 through Sunday, October 1, we will enjoy three days and three nights of learning, laughter, and relaxation in one of the most naturally beautiful settings in our region. We'll begin on Thursday night with a welcoming reception, Friday brings an Embroidery Workshop with Tif Fussell, Saturday is a knitted Shawl Workshop with Veronika Jobe, and there will be plenty of time in between to explore the area's natural beauty, soak in the outdoor heated rock pool, schedule a relaxing massage at the spa or just stitch or knit with the group in between our classes, meals and stitch circles.
The Friday Embroidery Workshop with Tif:
What could be more delightful than a wool blanket making friends with a moth or two? Tif thinks this is quite possibly the best of both worlds coming together and in this workshop she will be guiding you through the process of adorning a wool blanket with embroidered ‘woolly tattoo’ moths using a carefully curated selection of beautiful yarns. Tif will share ideas and samples, then encourage you to bring your own imagination and creativity to the outcome. And in turn your blanket and moths will start to have a life of their own resulting in a unique hand-stitched treasure to take home and continue working upon whilst wrapping yourself up in warm slow-stitched memories of Tolt Yarn and Wool’s first retreat, ‘Drawn to the Light’. Magical!
To take this workshop you must have knowledge of embroidery, listed below are some of the stitches we will be using for our blanket moth bling.
Long and short stitch
Lazy daisy stitch
Knit a sweet mini version of the Drawn to the Light shawl with Veronika. Learn the techniques used throughout the shawl, an enchanting and unique new stitch and tips & tricks that you can incorporate in future shawl projects. The class will allow you to knit up an identical mini of the larger shawl to give you the understanding and confidence to knit the larger version. Pattern included. Please bring your needles and basic notions (scissors, stitch markers, tape measure or ruler, tapestry needle).
(Please note: the shared lodging will require that one of the guests climb a sturdy and stable ladder to a roomy loft space with a full-sized bed. The other main floor beds are a queen-sized bed and a twin-sized bed.)
