To all those who attended The Flying Needles 2018 Inaugural Retreat, I have a very personal message for you: Thank you for attending, and THANK YOU for believing in me! When anyone takes on an event of this size and scope for the first year, there is always some risk involved. But ALL of you took this event in stride. I have to say, on the back end, there were a few terrifying moments that I just simply had to white-knuckle through. When the day arrived, it was much like birthing a new baby for me. You, MY FLYING NEEDLES COMMUNITY, all looked so HAPPY to be there! And you were all having SO MUCH FUN being together and learning new things.

Thank you to The Three Irish Girls, Marie Greene and Josh Ryks-Robinsky! What rocking AWESOME instructors you all were! Not only did you have wonderful knowledge to pass along, but you all are genuinely lovely people – a fact that all the attendees noticed!

To The Flying Needles Staff & Volunteers… wow… Just WOW! Thank you so much for all of your hard work! This event would not have happened. One person cannot do all the things that needed to be done to make this event as successful as it was. Thank you.

I’ve peeked at the surveys, and all you attendees all had such lovely things to say about the Inaugural Retreat. It was quite an undertaking, but I AM glad I did it. As I mentioned at lunch, please SAVE THE DATE for the 2019 Retreat – April 10-13.


Yours in Yarn,
