Camas Creek Yarn Summer Retreat with Nancy Bush

Everything is finalized at last! We can't believe how exciting it's been to plan the second annual Camas Creek Yarn Summer Retreat with Nancy Bush. We'll be learning some fascinating Estonian color work, lace shawl constructions, and unusual traveling stitches. The retreat will be at the historic and rustic Camp Tuffit family resort on Lake Mary Ronan.

Nordic Color

Friday, May 21, 2- 5 p.m. $45
Estonians use a special inlay technique for decorating gloves and socks similar to embroidery but worked right into the knitting. By knitting a sample, students will learn how to read the charts and work this unique and colorful embellishment.

Overture to Estonian Lace
Saturday, May 22, 8:30 - 11:30 a.m. and 1 - 4 p.m. $65
Estonia has a lace tradition spanning nearly 200 years. We will learn about their unique stitch patterns, special edging and corner treatments for modern lace, and some very different ways of creating texture in lace.

Estonian Traveling Stitches
Sunday, May 23, 8:30 - 11:30 a.m. $45.
The Estonians have a unique way of creating texture! In this class, we will take a look at the traveling and textured stitches used in both traditional and modern knitted garments. We will learn how Estonian knitters make their stitches move and how the stitches combine to form enticing patterns. We will discuss the many applications of these techniques.

Please call the store to sign up for Nancy's classes. We're proud to bring you the woman who single-handedly introduced the nupp stitch to North America! (And if you don't know what a nupp is, you need to take Overture to Estonian Lace!)

You are responsible for making your own reservations with Camp Tuffit. It is an extremely popular family fishing resort with a very loyal following on the shores of Lake Mary Ronan, just a short 35 minute drive south of Kalispell.

Share a cabin with your knitting friends, or bring along the entire family. This place is designed to accommodate kids, so there's plenty for them to do.

Please make your reservations ASAP to insure getting a cabin. You can call (406) 849-5220 and ask for Mark. Tell him you're with Camas Creek Yarn. Or e-mail This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . There are also wonderful camp sites, so if you prefer camping to cabins by all means bring your RV or tent. 

Location: Lake Mary Ronan, in Proctor, MT
