Week Long Fiber Retreat in Nova Scotia (July 26-Aug 2)

Posted by on May 13, 2014 | 0 comments

Those of you who know me know I am lucky enough to have a house in Nova Scotia about an hour south west of Halifax. The house is a weekly rental in the summer and is usually fully rented by February but this year things are different. For some reason, I am not fully booked. I see this as an opportunity, and have decided to put together a week long fiber retreat for anyone who is interested.

Here’s how it will work: The price will be $800/bedroom and this will include 7 breakfasts and 3 dinners at the house plus lobster supper at the Shore Club in Hubbards. Lunch can be leftover dinner if there is anything and there will be snacks in the house and you can help yourselves. There are three bedrooms available – 2 with Queen beds and one with a double and a single.

During the day there will be a number of suggested day trips – Peggy’s Cove, Lunenburg, Mahone Bay, Halifax, the Bay of Fundy – and fiber options will be highlighted. There are plenty of knitting, rug hooking and quilting shops, loads of antiques and other interesting stores and the house is only 20 minutes away from the Hooked Rug Museum of North America. There are also a number of beaches close by and opportunities to get out on the water either by taking a ferry to the outer islands or by renting a canoe/kayak.

The exact itinerary is tbd and even when it’s set will be up to the participants. Want to spend the entire day at the house with me looking out at the ocean while you hook or knit? Okay. You can be as busy or as unbusy as you’d like.

As always you can reach me at ragrugs@hotmail.com if you have any questions. I will book on a first come first served basis but will require a deposit to hold the bedroom.
