Both of the Knitting retreats, March and May, have sold out in record time. At this moment we have no more spots open for the retreats. 

Welcome to our knitting retreat at Hotel Nestor, on the Korpo island, 4-5.5.2024. We start the retreat on Saturday with arrivals and lunch, during the afternoon we’ll knit together and you can take part in a workshop on the theme knit care. Before our five course dinner prepared by Restaurant Back Pocket’s own William Hellgren you can stop by the sauna and jacuzzi to relax.

On Sunday we will meet up for a nice breakfast with some relaxing knitting together before checking out and returning home around noon.

In addition to some excellent knitting company, great food and a beautiful knitting environment all participants will get a goodie bag containing among other things one skein of yarn from our partner Säie Wool (value 26€).

This year we also offer our participants to get a head start on the knitting retreat by joining us at Hotel Nestor already on Friday evening. An additional night including breakfast on Saturday is 50 €, and for those interested a smaller three course dinner will be served on Friday evening (45 €).
