Okanagan Knitting Retreat


Sorrento Retreat and Conference Centre


Friday - Sunday May 24 - 26, 2024

Private Retreat – Okanagan Knitters

Since 1999, the Okanagan Knitters Retreat has attracted knitters of all levels, from those who have only recently picked up the art of knitting and purling, to those who are designing their own patterns. The retreats have been held at the Sorrento Retreat and Conference Centre on Shuswap Lake in BC since 2005 and will be again in 2024! The purpose of this retreat is to encourage, share and develop an independence and deeper appreciation of the knitting process. The retreat is intentionally small focused on local knowledge, making the weekend more accessible to the fibre community.

The retreat is scheduled to begin Friday, May 24th – Sunday May 26th. $250 covers your retreat registration and your all day Saturday workshop (only choose one) with one of our amazing instructors. For an additional $50, you can also take our optional Friday afternoon workshop on using your scraps to create a beautiful blanket for your home or a loved one.

Registration for the retreat opens this Friday, February 23rd at 9 am.
