WoW Camp 2022

I am really excited to be able to offer this camp event to bring us together for a weekend. This camp is about connecting in comfort so there are no classes. Because I'll be touring the yarn will be with me and available to purchase, but I'm there to see you so the in house pop up will be informal. 

While we aren't in tents, this is a camp. It's catered so that I can spend time with you, and the beds are bunked room share which is what really helped keep the pricing down. However, I don't mind admitting I'm past dibsing a top bunk so all beds available are bottom bunks. More beds are available if a top bunk is not an issue, but we will start with the bottom bunks and go from there :)

Sometimes the people who really need something like this can't afford to go so I will be building a Support Kete. If you are in a position to be able to contribute towards the Support Kete this will be distributed across those who indicate they need financial support to attend. If you are someone who needs that support, please use the text boxes accordingly to let me know what will help you get to camp, and any details provided will be held in confidence. Don't feel bad asking - travelling further impacts the costs, your income may be limited for a variety of reasons. There is no judgement, only a desire to see you if you can make it.

Support Kete Camper

Your use of the support kete is confidential. You don't have to tell anyone you are at camp due to using it, and you don't "owe" anyone anything. If you wish to thank the contributors, I can forward a message on your behalf. This is about the craft community supporting the craft community, and a way to include folks that might not otherwise be able to come. 

Everyone deserves events that rejuvenate the heart, and when your heart is full, this helps share kindness forward in other ways.
