Description

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

We have been searching for the perfect, local, weekend 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 2019...

Prairiewoods Franciscan Spirituality Center located in Hiawatha, Ia!

Festivities will kick off Friday, March 8th at 5pm with registration and open crafting in the main building community room until 9pm. The event will continue Saturday, March 9th 9am-9pm in the main building conference room and close on Sunday, March 10th with open knitting at your leisure in the guesthouse community room, yarn swap and grand prize drawing At 10am

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.

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 15 double rooms (these rooms share a bathroom with another double room) available at $50/night. You may register with a roommate in mind, or let us pair you with someone for the weekend! You may also book a double room and not share it, just purchase 2 room tickets for each night you want to stay (you will still have to share a bathroom with the next room) 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 $9, Lunch and Dinner $11 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 purchase in the comments section. The meals in the past were nothing short of AMAZING.

Fiber Exchange: Not required, but HIGHLY encouraged! 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.
