Our 10th Anniversary Crochet Retreat: February 20-23, 2014

Recommended Posts

February 16, 2014 will be Crochetville's official 10th birthday. We'll have a party that day here on the forum, but we thought our 10th anniversary was deserving of just a little bit more.


What better way to celebrate than by trying to get a bunch of our friends together all in one place for a big crochet retreat? So we're scheduling a fantastic retreat full of all kinds of crochet fun for February 20-23, 2014 in Huntsville, Alabama!


We are still very much in the planning stages, but things have moved swiftly over just the past few days. We hope to have a registration booklet available no later than the end of October. We'll have special early bird pricing through December 31, but registration will remain open through January 31.



Basic Retreat Information

The tentative registration price for the retreat is $100, which will include the following:

  • Goody bag
  • Door prizes
  • Daily sit and stitch with informal roundtable discussions
  • Daily crochet games with prizes
  • Hat collection for Halos of Hope (donated yarn available)
  • Trunk shows (designers will bring finished items from books and pattern stores)
  • Access to vendor area and book/pattern store
  • Yarn tasting (sample and play with lots of yummy yarns)
  • An incredible weekend full of more crochet fun than you will believe possible



Classes will be 3 hours long with a tentative price of $40.00 each (which is about half what you'd pay for these teachers at a big national event.) Again, we're still in the planning stages, but our tentative class schedule includes the following:


  • Selling Your Crochet: Pricing, Marketing, and More
  • Crochet Tips and Tricks
  • Yarn and Fiber Dyeing Workshop
  • Spinning with a Drop Spindle (materials provided; spindles available for puchase)
  • Amigurumi
  • Bead Crochet
  • Troubleshooting Your Works-in-Progress
  • Crochet Socks
  • Project from the time period of Downton Abbey
  • Tunisian Crochet



  • Deb Burger
  • Donna Childs
  • Kim Guzman
  • Tammy Hildebrand
  • Michele Maks
  • Kathleen Sams
  • Janelle Zorko Schultz
  • Amy Shelton


Retreat Swag

Want something
to help you remember the fun long after the retreat is over? We'll have a t-shirt, tote bag, and coffee mug with the retreat logo available for purchase.

We're having a retreat logo contest, so be watching for a thread with all the details.


Hotel and Travel Info


Hotel, meal, and travel expenses not included. We are still finalizing our hotel accommodations, but hope to have an announcement soon.

I'll be seriously considering doing this!  I would love to meet you both, Kim and Amy!  We've had some good online discussions and it would be great to meet in person.  


I would love to meet you!
