We still have regular paid slots available and registration can be completed here.
The scholarships include full retreat fees.
We want you to nominate any man you think should be able to go to the Men’s Rocky Mountain Knitting Retreat this coming February.
You can nominate a friend, a family member or yourself. The nominee must be a man and over 21 years of age. And please confirm that your guy has agreed to be entered into the nomination process and is available to attend. Two sample nominations would be:
- “I would like to nominate John O’Hara for the 2024 RMMKR Scholarship. John is a Librarian in Northern Arkansas with a great love for reading and knitting. He is always teaching knitting to anyone interested and has taught his wife to knit and has begun to teach his children (who he thinks are too young yet to learn, but he still tries). He lives in a very rural state with no local yarn stores, so John helped start a knitting group at the library where he works and has also worked to increase the number of books on knitting kept within his library network (for which we are all very grateful). John would love to get together with other guys who have a love for knitting, crocheting and spinning and I think he would be an amazing addition to your group of guys.”
- “I would like to nominate myself, Bobby Fibrea, for the 2024 MRMKR Scholarship. I have been knitting for 3 years and am completely hooked. As a professional who travels a lot, I take great pride in knitting in public and teaching coworkers how to knit. Unfortunately, since most of my work is done for non-profit organizations and I support a family of five, I have no funding, but would very much appreciate the opportunity of being around other guys that knit. I would appreciate your favorable review of my nomination.”
Scholarship recipients will be selected from all the nominations by a panel of Men’s Knitting Retreat coordinators . DEADLINE FOR ENTERING IS November 30, 2023. The winner will be officially announced no later than December 15, 2023.
