The 2nd annual Olive & Two Ewe Studios retreat is open for registration!
The Ewe Crew in the Woods Falloween Retreat is November 10-13 in Adairsville, Georgia at Barnsley Resort. Fall fun and cool temps await!
From their website, "Barnsley Resort is the ultimate retreat to unplug and enjoy all the pleasures and pursuits offered here. With more than 3,000 acres in North Georgia, we appeal to the traveler who craves a connection to an outdoor lifestyle, is inspired by nature and intrigued by history. From golf to horseback riding, from shooting to hiking, we have something for everyone. Throw in cozy accommodations, a range of delicious dining choices, a spa, shops and more, and you'll understand why Barnsley's authentic, active, genuine lifestyle draws people here over and over again."
This, our second retreat, will center around true retreat; time to get away from everyday life and enjoy focusing on stitching. Whether your craft is knit or crochet, you'll be right at home with other Yarny Ewes enjoying fiber crafts the same as you.
