Forthcoming Events

Knitting Holidays 2014

The itinerary for your holiday is kept as varied as possible, and includes a shopping trip to one of our excellent local wool shops followed by a meal in a local restaurant. Places we suggest for your free time include Fleetwood Market, Cleveleys and Poulton-le-Fylde, as well as Blackpool of course!

One full day workshop and one half-day workshop are held at the hotel and the visiting tutors for 2014 include Susan Crawford, Michele Marshall, Debbie Tomkies, Mary Walton and Paula Chew. Lively and informative, these workshops are fun for all levels of experience.

New for 2014 will be the excursion to Black Sheep Wools or Beckside Yarns. These excursions will be part of the midweek four-day breaks.

The days are busy, so after evening dinner everyone relaxes in the lounge with their knitting. There is a vast library of all the latest knitting titles and magazines to read, not to mention Paula's big box of patterns! If you are having a problem with a particular project, bring it along and Paula will do her best to help.

These are all inclusive packages, which means that your accommodation, breakfast, lunch, evening dinner, refreshments, workshops and excursions are included in the single one-off price. There are no single supplements. The title of the holiday is the subject of the full day workshop. The midweek and weekend 'knitaways' do not include organised activities.
