For the past 15 years Haus of Stitches has held a knitting retreat twice a year. The event attracts, beginners to experienced participants, from across Canada between the ages of 8 and 80+.
The first retreat, created to bring knitters together in a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere, was held in the spring of 2000 at Harmony House Inn at beautiful Manitou Beach, Saskatchewan. It was a splendid atmosphere enjoyed by many knitters for 12 years, until the location was sold in 2012. During those years, participants who attended regularly developed such strong bonds of friendship that Wendy Toye, founder of the Saskatchewan Stitches Conference and the Knitting Retreats, was determined to keep these friendships strong by quickly finding a new location. After much research, the newly renovated guest wing at the historic St. Peter’s Abbey in Muenster, Saskatchewan, would become the new home for this much sought-after event.
The Saskatchewan Stitches Conference offers creative classes with renowned fibre and needle work artists and attracts participants from across Canada who love to sew, knit, quilt and rughook.
