Autumn Escape 2025

Friday 9 May - Monday 12 May 2025, Taupō

No classes. No cooking (for you). Uninterrupted craft time, sleep time, book time, you time. 

Let the pressures of life slip away for a weekend as you join a group of like minded folk in a cosy setting, where we can truly connect with each other and our own thoughts while sinking into a good WIP. 

Upon registering you are invited to a private group so we can talk food, yarn and get to know each other before the weekend starts so that you know you'll be among friends.

Available Rooms:  

  • $730pp - Room to Self - 1 available

  • $700pp - Room to Self with sofa bed - SOLD OUT

  • $680pp - Twin Share - SOLD OUT

Payment plans are available. Paying by credit card incurs a surcharge.

Costs cover:

  • three nights accommodation

  • all meals 

  • tasty snacks

  • $50 credit towards yarn - full inventory will be coming with me

What to bring:

  • projects

  • togs for the spa

  • stash yarn to squish and allocate to projects

  • stash yarn that you might like to swap or find a buddy for

  • clothing is optional - perfectly acceptable to PJ all weekend

  • other craft projects or that pile of books you've been meaning to get to

  • you!

I had the privilege of attending Winter Retreat 2020 and it was AWESOME! I am not even a knitter and I still had heaps of fun. I wish I was a knitter because I totally had FOMO. Thanks Julie for running such a relaxing and restorative event. I would highly recommend and look forward to another in future.
