As the 4th annual Indie Design Gift-a-long approaches our blow out New Year’s Eve bash, I came across something extra special from one of our designers that I couldn’t wait to tell you all about. I know you’ve seen some of her work before (Puddles & dad have modeled it), but she also does jaw dropping, gorgeous, wow shawls as well as Mosaic knits.
US-based indie designer Simone Kereit created Knitterati Retreats to introduce knitters from around the world to her home country of Switzerland!
Simone offers 2 retreats for 2017: Schloss Munchenwiler runs July 31st- August 6th (left picture above) and Riederalp & Aletsch Glacier Retreat runs August 7th to 13th (right picture above). They both look absolutely amazing! But since this is a GAL related post, I decided to highlight the event that includes an additional GAL designer :-).
Riederalp & Aletsch Glacier Retreat
Teaming up with another GAL designer, Andrea Rangel, for the Aletsch region Mountain adventure, Simone introduces you to the Valais region of Switzerland in a nature focused adventure.
Classes and knitting time are scheduled each day (except travel days), artfully arranged around hikes, a museum visit, free time, and meals that will keep you energized for the knitting, learning, hiking, and fun!
What makes this retreat eco? The hotel is located high in the Alps in a car-free village! The itinerary for this trip includes plenty of opportunities to hike in the fresh Alpine air. The Schloss Munchenwiler retreat offers a local seasonal kitchen.
Pre-registration is now open, but spots are limited! The trip runs August 7th to 13th, 2017, Monday to Sunday. Full details here!
Keep the GAL spirit alive through 2017 by touring Switzerland with GAL designers & GAL friends.
