I’ve been organising this annual 3 night retreat at Knuston Hall in Northants since Sept. 2015. It is ideally for those who would like to improve their spinning but don’t get time at home, or those who have a spinning, weaving, knitting or other project they would like some time to complete. Come & join us, this may be just the productive break for you. Arrive - 4pm on the Sunday for afternoon tea before settling into our accommodation & then setting up in our workroom before dinner. Leave - after lunch at about 2.230pm on the Wednesday. Previous retreats have seen members from the Bradford, North Herts, Mid Essex, Rampton, North Hants, East Essex, Long draw & online Guilds taking part. We come together to enjoy a relaxing 3 night break so we can get on with project without having to pack things away at meal times etc. Knuston Hall is an elegant 17th Century house which was bought in 1865 by Robert Arkwright, the grandson of Sir Richard Arkwright who invented the spinning frame. The staff are very friendly and the hall offers a wide range of courses over the year. This retreat is one of several private bookings.
