Phat Fiber Spin in/Knit in Retreat!

So, what are you doing the first weekend in October 2010? Why not come to Southern Illinois for a Phat Fiber Spin-in! Nah, I'm not trying to sell you tickets, or charge you for teaching you things you'd probably be able to figure out on your own- just come as you are- fiber fun with no pretenses. A fiber Woodstock if you will... only I don't think there will be a a muddy mosh pit (sorry!).

Where: Giant City State Park, Makanda IL
You'll have to either book yourself a cabin (there are some left ask about the knitting retreat when you call 1-618-457-4921), camp out in one of the very nice camping areas, or drive in from a local B&B or hotel ( email for a list of those)

When: First Weekend in October- Friday (arrive)- Sunday (depart)

What: A Phibery Phellowship of Phantastic Phatties! Rub elbows with famous Phatties! Lots of excellent knitters/spinners/dyers to create with during the weekend. Want to learn a new technique? I bet you a dollar someone will know how to do it, and be willing to share! Saturday we will have a nice catered/potluck lunch provided for you, but everything else you'll need to bring yourself. Of course, you'll also need to bring your fiber/knitting/crochet supplies too!

We're having a discussion in the Ravelry group about it now: and if you think you'd like to come, feel free to email me with more details!

what fun! We will more than likely be off on a weekend for "us" that time, being our 19th anniversary.
