The New Date
We are sorry that we didn’t have enough people for our retreat this coming weekend. The good news is we have a new date for early Summer 2014 – the weekend of June 20th-22nd. I hope those of you who are interested will save this date to join us! This way you have plenty of time to plan and you can reserve your place with a $50 refundable deposit.
We have reserved the Mary Johnson Center (40946 Big Bear Blvd) in Big Bear Lake for the weekend
which is a very special place. Mary Johnson was a devoted artist and quilter who passed away a few years ago. Her artwork and quilts grace the walls with a description for each. The Center gives us plenty of room for the Friday Night Fashion Show as well as plenty of room for our workshops and displays that Maggie is bringing with her. Don’t miss this really fun and entertaining knitting weekend!
What if I’m a ‘Flatlander’?
Many of us who live in or frequent Big Bear know of its beauty and relaxing, fun filled atmosphere. If you and your knitting friends would like to attend our MaggiKnits Weekend Extravaganza, think about staying at the Pine Knot Guest Ranch where the wonderful owners, Larbie and Gloria, have their own llamas and bunnies nearby for you to visit! Or think about renting a cabin for a bunch of you. There are specials on lodging during the Fall. Here are some activities you could also think about while you’re here.
If flying you will want to fly in to Ontario Airport, rent a car and make your way up to Big Bear which is about 1 ½ hours away. We planned our retreat in June so that you can enjoy the beautiful summer weather and maybe even go out on the lake.
