Retreats Abound at Sauder Village

By Dawn Hauter, Marketing & Special Events Coordinator 

A chance to get away, to learn something new, to beat the winter doldrums, to connect with friends and make new ones, to eat delicious food…these are just a few of the reasons people come to retreats at Sauder Village.

Held in the Sauder Heritage Inn, retreats offer a spacious, beautiful setting to unwind and finish projects.

Two retreats will be held in February.  For rug hooking enthusiasts, a Rug Hook-In will be held February 3-4, and for knitters, a Knitter’s Retreat will be held February 10-11. 

Rug Hook-In
Barbara Branch and Paula Coy, mother and daughter from Detroit, Michigan, will travel to Sauder Village to attend the Rug Hook-In for a second time.

“This is another way for us to do mother/daughter activities,” shared Barbara.  “My daughter is busy running a business and raising a family, so we schedule two or three weekends a year to get away.  One of those trips is to Sauder Village.  We enjoy spending time rug hooking.  The accommodations are wonderful—we especially like the hot tub—and the food is always great.”

Knitter’s Retreat
Knitters from the tri-state area as well as Ontario, Canada, will convene on February 10 for a weekend of knitting classes and fellowship at the second annual Knitter’s Retreat. 
The retreat features knitting classes taught by Georgienne Westrick, Gail Richardson, and Lorie Konopka, as well as amazing door prizes donated by yarn shops throughout the region.  

A few spaces are still available in the Rug Hook-In and Knitter’s Retreat.  (Our ever-popular Quilters Retreat, scheduled for March 2-4, is full.)
