Knitting, Crochet and Spinning Retreats.

We regularly organise our own retreats in Scotland and work together with hand picked, wonderful venues to provide these.

New for 2018 is a retreat where we take over the whole Orchard Lodge in Alloa, a very popular place indeed!

Janet also provides Textile Retreats at other venues, such as Higham Hall in the English Lake District.

3-night Retreats at Higham Hall, The Lake District, Cumbria:


Monday 2nd - Thursday 5th April 2018 Retreat at Higham Hall near Cockermouth, English Lakes District UK

Yarn and Fibre Retreat at the wonderful Higham Hall. Lovely walks, fantastic food and time to knit, crochet and spin in the peaceful sitting room at Higham Hall. Expert guidance from Janet as ever, and you can choose what you want to work on (if anything, it's equally fine just to chill and work on your projects) for Janet's 1-1 input on your chosen focus. This is optional and there is no need to focus at all if you don't want to. All levels including beginners.

Book by contacting Higham or phone 017687 76276

.....and why not combine this retreat with a course also at Higham with Janet:

Friday 30th March - Sunday 1st April Learn to Weave on a loom: a scarf or shawl - book direct with Higham as above.


A recent customer review: "Venue and catering was excellent -very welcoming and accomodated all requests. Tuition was first class in a relaxed fashion. Everyone was able to improve skills and learn new ones. Can't wait until next one" FL


We are looking for additional retreat venues to make them available in more areas.

Do you own a large Bed & Breakfast, Guest House or Boutique Hotel with a minimum of 5 bedrooms and a lounge or meeting room?

Are you located in Scotland and the North of England.
