It’s almost that time again for our annual Jimmy Beans Wool retreat, and we can’t even begin to tell you how thrilled we are to host it this year! The last three years have been such an incredible experience for all of us here at JBW and we have taken away so much from hosting the retreats and getting to meet so many new, amazing people from all around the country. While there are so many cool things that come from the each of the retreats, our absolute favorite part every year is simply getting to be surrounded by so many passionate and skilled knitters all weekend long. Each year we leave our retreats feeling more and more inspired by all of our guests, and we strive to ensure that the following year’s retreat is even more special to create the best experience imaginable.
For this year’s event, we have some very exciting features planned and we are confident that this is going to be our best retreat to date! The retreat will be taking place from June 1st-4th, and we have decided to head back up to our favorite spot up at the gorgeous Northstar Resort at Lake Tahoe. This luxurious resort is located in the heart of the lush forest and close to so many recreational sweet spots. The resort is a haven for all things adventure and relaxation, and it’s such a treat for us to come back and enjoy this spot each year with our guests. We’ll have plenty of down time to explore the area and soak in all of its natural beauty!
But let’s not forget about the most important part – the knitting, of course! We have several knitting classes lined up for our guests to participate in, catering to most skill levels and ranging in various techniques. We are proud to announce that our VIP knitting instructors for the weekend will be none other than the sock queen Ann Budd and lace guru Romi Hill! These two will bring with them so much knowledge and wisdom to share, and they cannot wait to chat and knit with all of our guests.
As you may have already heard, our company moved into a different facility a few months ago and we have a brand new retail store and knit shop that just opened to the public at the beginning of March. We had some big dreams for our new shop, and we worked hard for several months planning out every little detail to create the shop we always envisioned. We are so incredibly proud of the new shop design and set-up, and we will be welcoming all retreat guests for an exclusive tour of the new warehouse and store, along with some time to browse, shop, and knit.
Want to get in on the action with us? We’re happy to announce that we still have some spots available this year and it would be an honor for us to be your host for this unforgettable weekend. Join us this summer and embark upon a journey quite unlike anything else. Surround yourself with the crisp, fresh mountain air, meet talented knitters like yourself from all around the country, create lifelong friendships, refine your skills and learn new techniques, and head back home feeling rejuvenated and inspired. We have been looking forward to this event all year and we hope to have you up on the mountain with us to share the magic!
