Go Shorty It’s Ya Birthday!

IMG_7706Who can believe that in July it will have been a whole year since we launched The Crochet Retreat?! We have made SO MANY amazing new friends (that just keep on coming back for more!), played with the most beautiful yarns, eaten one heck of a lot of the most delicious food (thanks Ava!) and created some pretty awesome crochet. In a year we have come quite a long way, going from that lightbulb moment whilst trying to get to sleep one night, to selling out in less than a fortnight – leading us to confirm one retreat per month for 2016, new collaborations with our fave yarn companies, a handful of amazing magazine and blog features and now, the launch of our gorgeous new venue.


To celebrate, we are hosting a special edition of the retreat with even more crochet, even more beautiful yarn, even more exciting workshops AND (the thing I’m most excited about) limited edition gift bags – containing goodies from our fave brands, mags and makers! Here’s just a little taster of our gift bags…

We have absolutely gorgeous glitter crochet hook necklaces made especially for us by Trick Of The Stitch, latest editions of our fave mags, luxury yarns from designer brands, our exclusive John Lewis cushion pattern, adorable crochet brooches from Max’s World, insanely cool crochet hooks from HiyaHiya and SO MUCH MORE!

Even after all of the freebies, there’s still stacks of awesome stuff happening. On the Saturday, after the guest workshop (where we will be making the gorgeous necklaces pictured above), we’re getting our party on.  So once the bubbly has been popped open, we will be joined by Simply Crochet, One Man Crochet (pictured below, from when he won the Christmas Tree decorating challenge on Kirstie’s Handmade Christmas) and Coats and we are also hoping to see our friends Tilly And The Buttons & Stuart Hillard (The Great British Sewing Bee). We are also hoping to add Kat Goldin, Erika Knight and Lucy Tiffney (Great Interior Design Challenge) to our guestlist! Be sure to wear your party gear!
