Online Nordic Retreat 2021

We are so excited to invite you all to our first February retreat, all about Nordic knitting! With a key-note speech by Karie Westermann and technical talks by RiverKnits and Midwinter Yarns it’s going to be packed full of information as well as all the community feels and fun things you find at our events, but from the comfort of your own sofa!

Want to know more about Scandinavian knitting traditions, colour theory and yarn characteristics?

  • With a deep-dive into the different aspects of Nordic knitting in Scandinavian countries, Karie Westermann will be opening the retreat with her keynote speech on Friday night.
  • Known for their keen sense of colour, Becci and Markus of RiverKnits will be guiding us through the technical side of colour-theory on Saturday morning, and how to choose shades to make the best of your stranded knitting.
  • Estelle of Midwinter Yarns will be introducing us to the knitting traditions, mills and yarns that are the foundation of Scandinavian knitting on Saturday afternoon.
  • Saturday night we will have a Zoom Sit & Knit where we can catch up and discuss what we learned, and Sunday will be our jam-packed marketplace! If you own a yarn or fibre related business and would like to participate in the marketplace, please fill in this form: https://forms.gle/NdFDRND8SnRVtqGm7

The price for this weekend will be £40. Gift bags will be available separately at a cost of £35+p&p. By keeping the cost low and the gift bag as an optional extra we hope to make our retreat more accessible for those on a tighter budget. Tickets and pre-orders for gift bags will be on sale at cartrefyarn.com in the “Retreat Merch” section from 8pm on Saturday 12th December 2020.

  1. I have bought a ticket and a goodie bag. And am excited for the weekend. Wondered if there is some information somewhere about what is in the goodie bag?

    1. Hi, glad you’ll be joining us! The contents of the goodie bag are a strict surprise until it arrives with you, so I’m not spoiling the surprise!
