Description

Calling all fiber & needlework crafters! This is the event for you!

We have been searching for the perfect, local, knitting retreat that encompasses all of our favorite handicrafts, and couldn't find what we wanted. So, we organized our own! We are ecstatic to announce our location for 2018...

Prairiewoods Franciscan Spirituality Center located in Hiawatha, Ia!

Festivities will kick off Friday, February 23rd at 5pm with registration and open crafting in the guesthouse community room. The event will continue Saturday, February 24th in the main building conference room and close on Sunday, February 25th with yarn swap and grand prize drawing.

Venue: The Prairiewoods campus includes the Center, an 18-room Guest House (lodging for 33), two Hermitages, a private Residence and an I-Renew training facility. In addition to these buildings, it features a Media Center, Meditation Room, Gift Shop, gardens, outdoor labyrinth, walking trails and traditional sweat lodge. A tour is available as a group, time TBA for anyone that is interested! Please purchase a ticket so I have a head count.

Lodging: You are not required to stay on-site, but doing so allows you to stay close to the fun, and take advantage of all Prariewoods has to offer. We have reserved the entire guesthouse for our event. There are 3 single rooms available at $80/night and 15 double rooms available at $40/night. You may register with a roommate in mind, or let us pair you with someone for the weekend! Please be sure to read through the lodging tickets and purchase carefully! Contact me immediately if you need to change your reservation, as all lodging requests will be filled by the FAN Fest organizing committee, and not Prairiewoods staff. If you would like more information about Prairiewoods you can check the link here: http://prairiewoods.org/facilities/

Meals: You are not required to purchase meal tickets, but are available for your convenience! Meals are available and provided by the amazing chefs of Prairiewoods. Breakfast is $8.50, Lunch and Dinner $10.50 each. The menu is at the chef's discretion, but any and all dietary restrictions and allergies will be accommodated. Please be sure to include all pertinent info with your meal ticket.

Fiber Exchange: Not required, but HIGHLY encouraged! In lieu of swag bags we are offering a fiber exchange. Each person wanting to participate should bring an unwrapped gift with a value of $25. Your exchange can be yarn, fiber, knitting bag and notions, a kit... anything! Please make sure that you are giving something that you would like to receive, and not available at big box stores such as JoAnn's, Hobby Lobby etc. Gifts will be drawn at 10am on Sunday, must be present to win.

Grand Prize Drawing: Each gift will be drawn for separately, must be present to win! These gifts are donated from LYS in our area. Thank you for all of your support! Drawing will be held right after the fiber exchange.

If you have any questions, or would like more information, please email Cera at mizbiz5@me.com.
