2018 Great Lakes Men’s Knitting Retreat Registration


Join us for our 10th Annual Great Lakes Men’s Knitting Retreat. We start out at the Stitching Memories Yarn Shop in Portage, MI. Shop a little, enjoy some Lasagna, then find a spot in the store to do some knitting, crocheting, spinning, etc.

Reserving and paying for accommodations at a local hotel for Thursday night are on your own. If you are open to sharing the hotel room with another attendee, please note that in the comments when you register and you’ll be sent a contact.

The next morning, we meet for breakfast at a local pancake house and then head back to Stitching Memories for some last-minute shopping and a raffle. From there, we head out to our retreat destination at Circle Pines Center, Northwest of Delton, MI where we cozy up to a nice fireplace and some relaxing Fiber Arts!
