Join Jane Crowfoot in West Yorkshire for 6 days of workshops and yarn-themed excursions. On this retreat, visit the collection of the Knitting & Crochet Guild, a treasure trove of textile wonders, housed in a former mill in Slaithwaite – a village also home to Stylecrafts, where we will have a behind the scenes tour of the mill. Our learning of wool production continues with mill tours of British Wool in Bradford and West Yorkshire Spinners. There will also be the opportunity for some local sightseeing as we spend some time in the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Saltaire Village.
Meet Jane and your tour manager at the 4-star Leonardo Bradford hotel, in the heart of Bradford city, close to City Park and the Alhambra Theatre.
This evening, meet your fellow knitters for dinner in the hotel.
After a leisurely breakfast, check out of the hotel.
Information on Knitting & Crochet Guild Annual Membership: All guests joining this tour will receive an annual membership to the guild. This enables you to obtain free vintage patterns and enjoy all the other member benefits which can be found on the website: https://kcguild.org.uk/the-guild/membership/benefits-of-membership/
Anyone who is already a member will have a year added on to their existing membership or you can choose to gift the membership to a friends or relative, or alternatively decline it.
Tour notes: You will need to have a reasonable level of fitness to get the most out of this holiday. On excursion days you will need to walk a short distance from the hotel/ship to the coach and you should be able to board the coach unaided. On arrival at the excursion destination, you should be able to alight the coach unaided and there may be a walk between the coach drop off point and the excursion venue. By their nature, walking tours, museum visits etc involve being on your feet for a significant amount of time. Whilst our excursions are taken at a leisurely pace, for the enjoyment of everyone in the group you should be able to keep up with your fellow travellers.
Specially designed for knitters, this Stitchtopia knitting holiday is the ideal opportunity to meet like-minded knitters and indulge in your favourite hobby. Our talented knitting expert will be on hand throughout the holiday and host inspirational workshops with a beautifully designed project to get those needles clicking!
