Winter Escape 2025

Friday 13 June - Monday 16 June, Rotorua

I may not love the oven, but I do love this house. Loads of space to unwind and craft to your heart's content.

No classes. No cooking (for you). And the only thing you need to worry about is your stitch count.

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.

**Because we are sharing a house for a weekend, RATing before hand is kindly requested**

Available Rooms: 

  • $700pp - Room to Self  - SOLD OUT

  • $630pp - Twin Share SOLD OUT

  • $560pp - Quad Share  - 4 beds available

    All beds in quad share are ground level

Costs cover:

  • three nights accommodation

  • all meals

  • tasty snacks

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

What to bring:

  • togs

  • projects

  • 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, but you'll want one publicly acceptable outfit for our dinner outing

  • 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.
