Come and join us at the Ironwood Springs Miracle Lodge Retreat Center for the weekend. Ironwood Springs is located in Stewartville, MN, near Rochester in southeastern Minnesota, about an hour and half south of the Twin Cities area. Plan on arriving Thursday afternoon, class will be all day Friday and Saturday, and Sunday morning. Enjoy learning a new knitting skill, relaxing and sharing quality time with fellow knitters!
GUEST INSTRUCTOR: We welcome Sarah Peasley to Minnesota Knitters Days. Sarah is a designer, teacher and technical editor for many knitting publications and books. She teaches at yarn shops and guilds, Vogue Knitting and Stitches conferences across the US, and online through Craftsy.
CLASS: “Jean Frost Custom Jacket Weekend” Sarah will guide us through the “7 essential steps” to knitting a custom-fit jacket, using the techniques outlined in Jean Frost’s Custom Knit Jacket book. Choose a jacket from the book, or bring your favorite jacket/cardigan that you’d like to knit. After taking each step with Sarah, you will start knitting your jacket with confidence of a perfect fit. You’ll be making a sample jersey jacket, specific to your body measurements. Ease, armhole and neck shaping, sleeve construction, finishing and lining are also discussed. There will be some homework to prepare for this class, which will be sent before our weekend. You’ll be ready to knit your jacket with confidence of a perfect fit!
LOCATION AND LODGING: The Miracle Lodge retreat and conference center was named after seven years of construction, donations from fourteen states, and contributions from 1000 people and businesses. Twenty-seven beautiful rooms all fully furnished are now being used and the word is spreading.
Our group will meet in the Riverside Room on the main level of Miracle Lodge, which has excellent lighting for knitting. There is a beautiful fireplace in the Riverside Room and a Fire Pit right outside our classroom door for an evening fire to knit by.
Your room will be located on first or second floor of the Lodge. The Dining Hall will serve lunch and dinner each day during our stay, which is a short walk from the Lodge. Your morning breakfast will be on your own, either in your room or the small kitchen right off our class room. There are coffeemakers, refrigerators and microwaves provided for your use. Ironwood Springs Christian Ranch is located near Stewartville, MN in southeastern Minnesota.
