Donna will be doing something extra special this year. She is customizing each attendees packet with yarn and a unique handout the is based on your family background, ancestry, and other influences. It is going to be so much fun.
At the end of April, we will be sending out a survey to get information from each person who has registered. Based on your replies, I will be creating a custom program for this retreat, so we can focus on the techniques and patterns that are from the areas each person is interested in learning more about.
