Prairie Knitting Retreat, October 28-30 2016
We have organized a Prairie Knitting Retreat we have organized for the end of October (Oct 28-30). The retreat will take place in the River House Bed and Breakfast, a 19th century Queen Anne Victorian house overlooking the place where the Illinois River and Fox River meet. It is about 2 hours away from Urbana and it's a very easy drive. There is room for 25 people and our website is ready to take in your reservation. The prices of the rooms vary and the fee for the retreat is $150. You can find the details for the retreat here.
If you are on the fence deciding whether to sign up for it or not, this is my gentle nudge to you: go to our website and sign up now. There is one room left at the River House Bed and Breakfast (the Loft) and the rest of the rooms are at the Hampton Inn, where we have reserved a block of rooms. To book the Loft at the B&B go to our website. To book a room at the Hampton Inn contact the hotel directly and tell them it's for the Prairie Knitting Retreat. We need you to sign up by Sept 28--if we don't have enough people by Sept 28, we will need to cancel it... so, if you are planning on coming, I need you to sign up for it now!
