Jimmy Beans Wool Spring Retreat 2016

JBW Spring Retreat

It's that time again for our Spring Rowan Weekend Retreat with your favorite Jimmy Beans Wool staff at the breathtaking Northstar-at-Tahoe Village!

Once again, this all-inclusive long weekend will include lodging at Northstar-at-Tahoe, as well as visits to Reno to the Jimmy Beans Wool retail store and warehouse. This year, our special guest instructor will be none other than the fabulous Amy Herzog! Amy's class will focus on identifying styles that you like and the how-to for creating the knitted fabric that you are expecting! She will also be around for the entire weekend to help folks do swatch evaluations and do some personalize shopping help here at the Jimmy Beans Wool warehouse!!!

As always, we will be taking some time to come and drool, I mean fondle, OH! I mean check out the stash here at the JBW warehouse! We will have lots of time to do some fun shopping and get some great inspiration for future projects! This year's event will include three nights of lodging, all meals, classes, and plenty of time to knit or crochet together!

We'll kick the weekend off with a 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 gift bag! This spring, we will be offering 2 rooming options. You can come up and stay with a friend (new or old!) in a shared unit for the all-inclusive rate of $650 or you can request a single room for $950, while they last!

You can download a registration form in .PDF format here.

Schedule: **subject to change**
