guilt free indulgence....
For all knitting and crochet lovers out there you need this
A stay with us includes
As we are lucky to have alpacas, good quality alpacas at that, we have a perfect supply of natural coloured 100% alpaca own brand in light weight, double knits and chunky in light silver grey - dark silver grey - rose grey - fawn - black also as rovings and also raw fleece.
We are based in rural but beautiful France in North Dordogne, there is no local transport (train station 3kms) and if you prefer to be a bit more independant and include a bit more exploring you may want to flirt with the idea of renting a car, just an option.
This week is about you, a time to relax a time to crochet, a time to drink wine (or tea) a time to enjoy the pool or the Jacuzzi, a time to marval at the night sky with no light pollution, a time to recharge, learn new skills, make new friends and spend as much time with your hooks / needles as you like.
Bring your partner / husband for an extra £250 for the week when you book the kingsize room
All courses are based on a maximum of 8 places (not counting husbands / wives if they opt in) so plenty of opportunity for some serious quality crochet / knitting time, definitely guilt free indulgence !! You deserve it - you will fall in love with alpacas.

This week is all about knitting, we have projects designed especially for us for this week in our own alpaca yarn, Fiona Morris has just published another book, this time about beaded knitting... and guess what our project will be designed by her especially for us using her techniques in the book, of course you can still bring your own work in progress whether it's knitting or crochet help is on hand.
An exciting week for May and arrivals can be a bit more flexible for either a saturday to saturday or sunday to sunday our nearest airport if you're planning on flying in is Limoges - 40 mins... next closest is Bergerac - 1hr 20... and I think flights will be far easier in May locally or of course you can make your own way here.
May shouldalso have seen the arrival of brand new shiny cria, fingers crossed.
