The Kiwi Knitting Company
10th Anniversary Celebration and
Kiwi is happy to celebrate its 10th anniversary this April. We started the celebration in February with Ric Rao's Natural Dye Workshop. You can see the pictures of this wonderful day on our Facebook page.
This last weekend's Beginning Rigid Heddle Weaving class with Judith Shangold continued the festivities. Though a smaller group, it was also a very exciting & fun. I am jealous of the beautiful scarves that left at the end of the day! I am so sorry that I neglected to take pictures.
Our final event is July in Mexico with Cat & Peckos!
Our base of operations will be Cholula, Mexico With the magnificent backdrop of volcanos Popocatépetl and Iztaccíhuatl, nearby archaelogical sites, and hundreds of churches-many containing works of art-the ancient city of Cholula, said to be the oldest continuously inhabited village in the Americas, is a place you will want to return to again and again.
There is enough to keep you happy for more days than we can stay: the mercado, museums, pre-hispanic archives and library, shopping, many cafes and restaurants, and endless colorful arts and crafts.
Weather in July generally includes a short afternoon rainstorm and temps in the 80's.
In keeping with our hosts' philosophy, "Participate; don't anticipate!" each day's activities are likely to include time for knitting, exploring, cooking and other fun in response to what comes alive & available that day rather than adhering to a rigid schedule.
One day we will be making the 20 minute drive to a Community Links International organic farm where we can wander, talk with volunteer teams, knit and share a picnic lunch before returning to Cholula.
Dates: July 12 - July 18th Cost: $1800* Group size: 8 - 24
*Includes 6 nights of a shared hotel room ($300 for single supplement). All breakfasts will be provided plus various other meals leaving you free to explore for others. Does not include: Travel to Puebla Airport and incidental expenses (souvenirs, water, snacks).
To reserve a spot, please contact Lynn at (520) 881-1319 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
