Knitting in the Redwoods

a luxurious five day retreat at



     We invite you to join in as we take four nights to relax, share stories, enjoy great food, great company, and the peaceful surroundings while we keep our needles and hooks moving. 



During our stay

Arrival on Thursday September 22nd; Farewell on Monday September 26th.

     We will rise each morning to the call of yoga, stretching and relaxing all of our muscles and bringing inner peace as we start our daily journey. Each day will bring a new workshop and a special treat showcasing the incredible area. We have planned a two-hour jet boat tour of the Klamath River, giving us the opportunity to see Bald Eagles, Blue Herons, River Otters and other wildlife that lives on the Klamath, along with a story teller to delight us in the history of this mighty river. Also scheduled is a visit with Yurok women, who will be demonstrating the art and history of basketry amongst their Native American tribe, as well as teaching us how to weave our own medicine baskets. The special guest instructor Patti Subik will amaze us with color, and will teach us the art of dyeing wool and silk using steam. Laura and Harry will also be teaching two workshops- embellishing your knitting, and knitting in the stitch below. Our yarn sponsor Classic Elite will be providing the yarn for the workshops, as well as generously providing gifts to enjoy during our stay, or after we say goodbye. Your food will be provided, and every meal will be fresh, farm-to-table, and locally produced (any dietary restrictions can be accommodated). If at any time you need help with a technique, we will be right there with you at meals, during the day, and in the Requa house in the evening playing games, knitting, and crocheting. Astonishingly, even with all of the activities and workshops scheduled, there will still be plenty of down time to kick back and relax. 




About the Requa Inn

     The Requa Inn is over 100 years old, located in the town of Requa (pronounced Rek-wah). It was a bustling fishing center on the Klamath River in the late 1800s when a hotel was first constructed to serve the Klamath’s numerous fish canneries.  Although the bustling commercial center is now a sleepy village in the Redwood National Park the historic Requa Inn has been a feature of the area for 100 years.  The Inn is family run by Jan and Marty Wortman with their son Chef Thomas.  The food at the Requa is an important part of the overall experience. From farm to table locally harvested vegetables, mushrooms, meats and fish will be brought to you in every meal.  All produce is locally sourced from one farm 30 miles away from the inn. The inn is also located right in the heart of a series of Redwood Parks, which have been declared both an International Biosphere Reserve, and a World Heritage Site.
