HI - From the retreat

We are having fun and learning more than my brain can hold - Shelley

What a great teacher she made every minute count. It has been great group - Mary Tanti

A wonderful weekend - full of talented knitters, great food and spectacular scenery! - Marilyn Welsh

As a first time attendee to the retreat Margaret says - sure learned lots and have great swatches and notes to take home -  We had 3 Margarets at this retreat

What wonderful students!  I've never met a more pleasant bunch of knitters.  They were willing to be challenged and work outside their comfort zone, and to share their expertise with each other.  Shelley and Linda were welcoming supportive hosts.  The Tsa-Kwa-Luten Lodge is such a great place to stay--friendly staff, quiet rooms, and beautiful expansive views.  I only wish there'd been time to wander on the beach!  I can't wait to come back. - Margaret Radcliffe

It was a great weekend.  Learned so much this weekend - it was amazing.  Super instruction and hand outs and a fun fun group to spend time with.  It was the best so far - they only get better each time.

Everyone else is too busy having fun to write.  Pictures will be posted later.  You gotta check out the bears!

We should be in for a good weekend

We are all set for the retreat. Margaret is on her way. She is spending a few days visiting in Vancouver before the retreat. Look at the weather forecast. I can't wait to sit on the deck at Tsa Kwa Luten in the sun knitting.
See you there

Adventure to Quadra

This week a trip to Quadra will be different. The ferry is not operating for a week. They are building us a new ferry dock and ramp. In order to do this they aren't operating the ferry this week. So if any off shore knitters want to come to Quadra this week they can come by Water Taxi. It is a short walk to the store from the dock but it is uphill so if anyone wants a ride from the dock just call the store 250-285-2751 and we will put up the back in 5 min sign and pick you up.

Campbell River - Quadra Island (Quathiaski Cove)
Water Taxi - crossing time approximately 5 minutes
Service to operate in 6:00 am to 10:00 pm window, leaving Campbell River approximately every 20 minutes
No unaccompanied children under 12 years of age permitted.

This is the notice from the BC Ferry page. We plan to just stay on Quadra all week and knit - weave - spin.
