The Flaming Ice Cube Knit Retreat 2017
May 5 - 7

Once again, this year The Flaming Ice Cube Knitters Retreat will be held at The Hampton Inn and Suites in Canfield, Ohio.  We received positive feedback last year on larger and nicer community area for relaxing, knitting, and socializing between classes.  There is also a pool area and all rooms are inside accessible (that means no more walking outside to get from your room to the classes and meals).

This year we are happy to welcome Alasdair Post-Quinn to our retreat!  You may know Alasdair from his books Extreme Double-Knitting and Double or Nothing, or his classes at the national knitting conventions like Stitches. The topic of this year's classes will be double-knitting.   

Our retreat will take place May 5 - 7, 2017 at the Hampton Inn & Suites in Canfield, Ohio and will include accommodations Friday and Saturday night, dinner Friday and Saturday night, a boxed lunch Saturday, breakfast Saturday and Sunday, 9 hours of instruction and workshop and a goody bag worth over $50!
