The 2014 retreat will take place September 19, 20 and 21.

When was the last time you went to camp with s’mores, bonfires, a bunkhouse, a mess hall, new friends, maybe even a camp song? We have all of that plus fiber!

I am so excited to be part of the Happy Camper Fiber Retreat. This year’s retreat will focus on color with classes from Rita Petteys, Jillian Moreno (that’s me!) and Beth Smith.

You will have the opportunity to take a class with each of the instructors and increase your knowledge of color and how to play with it in different ways. You will dye braids of fiber with Rita, card your own color wheel with Beth and create unique yarns by combining colors in spinning with me.

Rita, Beth and I will be around all day and night, not just in class. We’ll be available to answer questions or fine tune techniques. We love this stuff.

For two and half days you will get to immerse yourself in fiber and color by dyeing, carding and spinning. There will be time to just kick back too, to walk in the woods, chat

with friend or just nap. This is a creative retreat with some time to learn and some time to play.

On Saturday night we will have a fiber marketplace featuring some of the best fiber goodies in the state of Michigan. You’ll want to shop until you drop.

The retreat will be held at Waldenwoods Retreat and Conference Center in Hartland, Michigan. This beautiful historic retreat center is located less than 4 hours from Chicago, IL and 30 minutes from Ann Arbor, MI. The Detroit Metro Airport is just 50 miles away.

I am so excited to be part of a retreat in my own back yard here in Michigan, it’s going to be fun!
