I am wife to Jeff, homeschool mom to 8, a knit and crochet teacher and totally addicted to knitting, crocheting and other fiber arts. After knitting, crocheting and sewing my own clothing from the age of 10 on, I studied textiles & clothing in college. That lead me to 25 years of custom dressmaking and alterations work, while sewing, knitting and crocheting for my growing children. I have worked in the yarn industry for the past 3 years and have been designing my own knitting patterns. Visit my web site at Find me as DeniseInIowa on

Knitting Retreat & Shop

Arnhild's Knitting Studio Retreat 2008

Rauma Retreat Shop hosted by


Knitting retreat was fabulous!

We had a pampered weekend full of knitting, classes, excellent food and fun. Well, I didn't get to attend any of the classes but I still had a lot of fun.

We set up this beautiful store on Friday and started the weekend with soup, salads and lots of shopping.

Saturday there were classes in entrelac, needle felting, recycling your felted wool sweaters and a clinic with Arnhild, an expert in Norwegian knitting.

Sunday there was more time to work on projects or learn a new technique.

I met so many wonderful people! I am looking forward to next year's retreat!

Would you like to make one of the beautiful items shown here? You can now order any of the Rauma yarns and patterns and the Arnhild's Knitting Studio patterns at my web site: Denise's Needleworks.
