Jimmy Beans Wool Fall Retreat 2015

JBW Fall Retreat    Join us for an intimate weekend retreat with your favorite Jimmy Beans Wool staff and favorite designers, Diane Soucy and Julie Turjoman, all while taking in the breathtaking surroundings at Northstar-at-Tahoe!

Once again this all-inclusive weekend will have three nights of lodging at Northstar-at-Tahoe, all meals, classes, and plenty of time to knit or crochet together, as well as visits to Reno to the Jimmy Beans Wool retail store and warehouse to check out our stash! Our retreat classes will be focused on personalizing your knits (size and shaping) with instruction from both Diane and Julie teaching to their expertise! You won't want to miss it!

We'll kick the weekend off with cocktail hour Thursday evening to meet some new friends (or reunite with old ones!), and the fun will continue through Sunday. Additionally, each participant will receive an awesome swag bag! We hope you'll join us for this fun and relaxing weekend retreat!

Please send in your completed registration form to our retreat team as soon as possible.

**We will be offering 2 rooming options for this retreat! You can come up and stay with a friend (new or old!) in a shared unit for $650 or you can request a single room for $950. Please indicate which option you would prefer on the registration form. **
