Guild Knitting Retreats
Note: Guild retreats are open to active Guild members and their guests. All participants must be currently registered Guild members.
Have you ever wanted to do little else but knit with friends? Have you wanted to enjoy breakfast and then knit, savor lunch and knit some more, feast on dinner and knit knit knit? If you’ve said yes, then a Guild retreat is for you.
The Guild sponsors two retreats each year, one in January and one in August, at the Viña Lestonnac Retreat Center in the middle of the Temecula wine valley.
We go to a beautiful, quiet place where we knit, take walks, enjoy three flavorful meals each day, devour snacks to keep us going between meals, and share our days and nights with long-time and new knitting friends.
Our 2023 Summer Retreat will be held August 14-17, 2023. Registration details can be found here.
The Winter 2024 retreat will be held January 22-25, 2024. Registration will begin October 1, 2023. Watch for details beginning in later summer/early fall under Knitters News on the website. Unfortunately, we’ve been informed that the cost for the January 2024 retreat will be higher.
Both retreats start on Monday with check-in after 10 am, and check-out on Thursday by 10 am. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are included, except for Monday and Thursday. Our first meal on Monday is lunch; our last meal is breakfast on Thursday. Payment for each retreat is due at time of registration.
