This product page is for submitting the deposit only for this retreat.

Susan has been going to Verona since 2007 and has developed a sense for Italian fashion, food, and lifestyle. In fact, she has recently purchased a second home there and will host events at her apartment.

Susan has established contacts with various artists, designers, stores, museums, and food-related businesses. This year, our 2022 retreat, centered in Verona, will include day-trips to Venice and Vicenza. It will begin at dinner time on October 11th (the day of arrival) and ends the morning of the October 20th with a farewell coffee.  Maximum group size is 7 persons.

Fashion, Textiles, Food...

This year, we have added more emphasis on mini-workshops; some with locals and some with Susan. Topics will revolve around hand-techniques with fiber (Nuno felting), dyeing/printing (either Shibori or printing), sustainable design projects, and more.  In addition, we will have fashion appointments that include visits to artisans, fabric and yarn stores, designers, and a knitting mill. There will be two out-of-town trips. The first is to attend an event call Abilmente (the Salon of Creative Ideas) which is in Vicenza, and features exhibits, workshops, and vendors. We will also take a trip to Venice to explore its sights and items related to fashion.
