Halloween Mini Retreat for Knitters & Crocheters with Vickie Howell

Halloween Mini Retreat for Knitters & Crocheters

I’m thrilled to announce our very first virtual, thematic mini-retreat!

Are you a spooky stitcher ready to howl at the moon with cohorts? Then join us for our Virtual Halloween Mini Retreat! With your host, me, you’ll learn witchy knit, crochet, and embellishing techniques. Plus, you’ll get a creepy kit full of goodies and supplies to work your magic with. When all is said and done you’ll have a screamful of stitch markers, at least one cobweb embroidered piece, an Ouija Board Pillow project (WIP), and some cackling memories to last a lifetime!

There are only 16 spots left! (as of Aug 30th)
