Description

It’s The Flying Needles FIRST EVER RETREAT & VIP MEET THE ARTIST EVENTS! It feels like we’ve been planning this forever because it’s something that we have wanted to do with YOU for … well… since BEFORE we OPENED! And we are absolutely OVER THE MOON TO ANNOUNCE…

All the way from Minnesota, the amazing Three Irish Girls Kelly & Erin will headline our Inaugural Retreat from 9am to 5 pm, Saturday, March 31, 2018, right here in beautiful Williamsburg. (Location TBA)

Accompanying the Three Irish Girls are powerhouse designers:

  • Ann Weaver of Maryland, most known on Ravelry for her Tempest sweater and

  • Sweater Whisperer Marie Greene, of Oregon, most known on Ravelry and here at The Flying Needles for her Stillwater sweater, which we did as our shop’s 2nd Knit-A-Long!

From 5 to 7 pm Friday, March 30, 2018, there also will be a VIP First-Look event where YOU will have the first chance to look & buy from Three Irish Girls and get one-on-one time for personalized questions to both designers. You can add this to your Registration Package or you can attend this separately.
