Since 1999, the Okanagan Knitting Retreat has attracted knitters of all levels, from those who have only recently mastered the art of knitting and purling to those who are designing their own patterns. The purpose of this retreat is to encourage, share and develop an independence and deeper appreciation for the knitting process.
The 2019 Okanagan Knitting Retreat, with Myriam Dostert and Joanne Pettigrew as the new coordinators, was held at the Sorrento Centre May 24th to 26th, 2019.
In the spirit of adventure and exploration, we developed a flexible format for 2019, designed to appeal to a wide range of interests and skill levels. Participants had the option to choose three out of five available workshop topics allowing for more exposure to new techniques and experiences.
