Allegheny Fiber Retreat 2020

Calling all knitters!

Have you seen what is in store for you at the Allegheny Fiber Retreat? We hand pick all the instructors to create an experience that will definitely be the most exciting and talked about event of the year! Three full days of classes with six national and international instructors. Come and learn all sorts of new things, make new friends, hang out with old friends, but most of all, have the best time playing with fiber! We are designing a marketplace that will have the finest quality yarns and accessories we carry at The Frayed Knot, as well as the finest hand spun and hand dyed yarns and ready to wear made by some of our instructors. Guest appearances, opportunities to compete for prizes, knit night on the front porch, great food, late night movies . . . this is one you don't want to miss.



There are 6 different 3 hr classes, and you get to take each one! There will be a morning class and an afternoon class each day, Thursday-Saturday. Every class is different and will leave you with all sorts of new ideas and inspirations!!!
