for upcoming Mountain Hollow Farm Yarn Retreats!

“All Yarn, All Weekend” – that’s our motto! Spend three relaxing days perfecting your craft in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains. Our yarn retreat is the perfect weekend getaway.

The lodge at Pine Mountain State Resort Park is the perfect setting for our gathering. It is surrounded by woods with beautiful trails for hiking and catching glimpses of the local wildlife. Delight in the company of other fiber artists while taking a break from the rigors of daily life.

To extend your retreat, arrive on Thursday and join us at Mountain Hollow Farm for the day.

Thursdays are our social day in the store. Bring whatever project you’re working on and come hang out with us. Depending on the weather and our whim, we can either gather in the pavilion or cozy up around the table in the store.

This is a wonderful opportunity for you to hang out with us, explore the farm (Beth is always happy to talk farming), and make new friends.

Here’s what past participants have to say about the yarn retreat:

“I appreciate all the organization that went into pulling off this retreat: cute nametags, wonderful food, terrific gift bags and prizes, loved the ambiance and would come back! Love, love, love the store and the fact that it offers more than yarn, but love the yarn, my favorite was the yarn Beth grew and sheared from her own animals. I appreciated extra activities being available, but not pushed. It was great that the beginning time on Friday was early and that we could stay until 3 on Sunday – felt like I got the most out of the weekend. Loved the trunk show too and the vendor gifts – so cool. I also thought the price was reasonable. THANKS!!”

“It was relaxing and enjoyable not to have a strict schedule. It was neat to meet people from all walks of life with one commonality – knitting! Other than sitting, knitting and talking about ‘eggrolls’ (???), I enjoyed the field trip to the store and farm immensely! What a neat store!!! Thanks for everything!” ~Julia

“Really loved this group of artists. All were so open and friendly and sharing – very inclusive.”

“I love this set up. Plenty of places to socialize and place for quiet.”

“Loved the venue and my lodge room, and service was fabulous. I love your yarn shop and seeing the animals! Thanks for a great weekend.”

“The retreat was great. The cottages are wonderful… Everyone is so nice and friendly and I really like the ‘show and tell’ (I now know my next project).”

“Great venue and time. Very nice area – you outdid yourself – everything is a do-over!”
