Our 11th Annual Retreat will be June 26-28, 2015 in Lake Arrowhead, CA!

Featured Guest Teacher – Kristin Morrison!

We are so excited to feature Kristin Morrison at the retreat this year! Kristin is a Southern California fiber artist and teacher, focused on using natural dyes for dyeing and printing on textiles and to demonstrate our connection to the natural world.

Kristin will be teaching a few classes over the weekend – they’re sure to fill up quickly so register for the retreat soon! Read more about Kristin on our blog!

Where: Arrowhead Ranch Conference Center, Lake Arrowhead, CA

Arrowhead Ranch has cabins featuring beds and private bathrooms with different configurations that can accommodate between 2 and 7 people. There’s a large dining hall, a larger dance pavilion building, plenty of indoor and outdoor space for our classes, a pool, jacuzzi, hiking trails, and more for your downtime!

It’s a great location if you want to bring your family along for the weekend – Arrowhead Ranch is located in the natural beauty of the San Bernardino National Forest, just minutes away from Lake Arrowhead.

Teachers & Classes

Teachers are given a discounted entry fee based on the number of hours they are scheduled to teach classes. Have a neat technique you want to share? Want to teach others how to do the craft you do but no one else seems to? ANYONE can teach – it doesn’t have to be Fiber Arts, either! You can submit a class proposal online anytime, and we’ll be in touch before the event.

We have a preview of the classes available at the 2015 retreat! After the schedule is finalized, class signups will begin.

More at the Retreat

Raffle – Every year we hold a raffle with your donations to fund our Retreat Scholarship program! Please donate any items you think this audience would be interested in.

Freebie/Destash table – Have things to get rid of that may not be worth anything? We have a freebie table so people can pick up supplies, magazines, partially finished projects, fabric scraps – whatever they need! Anything not taken by your fellow retreaters will be donated to a local charity.
Spinning Circle  – Don’t forget your spinning wheel! We sit, spin, & chat during downtime when we’re not taking classes and long into the night. It’s also a great place to try out some different wheels and see what’s out there – everything from an 1800s walking wheel to a repurposed bicycle made into a spinning wheel have been there in the past. The spinning circle welcomes everyone of course, to sit and chat and work on whatever projects you have!

Library – We bring our rare and out of print books for you to peruse over the weekend!
