Welcome to Sun Valley Fibers' 8th Annual FallFiber Frolic Retreat --
We're so excited to be able to plan a retreat this fall! It’s been a year and then some for all of us! George and I — and the folks at the Hilton — feel it’s safe to plan a retreat and observing the Dane County rules we can go ahead and start planning!
The retreat will be limited to 100 attendees, and class sizes limited to 10 people We've got the awesomely wonderful Kate Atherley joining us again — yay!! To say I’m excited about all of this is an understatement!
The dates are: Thursday morning through Sunday morning, November 4-7-, 2021
There is an option to arrive on Wednesday afternoon, November 3rd. Use that option if you are taking a class Thursday morning. =)
I won’t have class info out until later — and this year classes are not included in the retreat fee. The additional fee will be $45–a bargain for a 3 hour class.
We do have room rates for King and double Queen beds — just call the hotel AFTER you pay for your retreat spot please!
Hilton Garden Inn, Middleton/Madison West, Wisconsin
1801 Deming Way
Middleton, WI 53562
Registration for the retreat is $200. You must make your room reservations separately.
You may only purchase one registration. Each guest must purchase their own registration for the retreat.

- A most fabulous Swag bag with some items only available for retreat attendees and not for sale in the shop!
- Shopping Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
- A Fashion Show Friday evening.
- Access to our room block and our discounted room rates.

- Kate will be teaching 6 classes, two on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
- Please know that class sizes are limited.
- Class information will go out in August.
- We will have a fashion show Friday evening -- We had SO MUCH FUN seeing what gorgeous garments you've knit up with our stunning yarn! Everyone is so inspiring!
- Kate will entertain us on Saturday evening —
The retreat is limited in size to 100 attendees.
Meals will be on your own, and I will provide information about all of the wonderful restaurants in the area. Our location is right smack dab in the middle of Greenway Station and you will have many restaurants to choose from for lunch and dinner. The Hilton Garden Inn has a spectacular breakfast buffet/omelet station and there are so many great restaurants in walking distance or a short drive away.
If you haven't already joined our Sun Valley Fibers January Thaw Retreat group on Ravelry, I suggest you do so, because that is the place information will be shared and updated regularly -- and the place for you to get a roommate (if you need one) and meet fellow attendees before the event.
George and I are looking forward to another fun event -- see you soon!
Refund Policy and Cancelation Information:
I will try to answer a few potential questions here. COVID-19 is making some things a bit uncertain -- however we still need to live some sort of normalcy and plan to have some fun! We are confident the retreat will go ahead!
If an Attendee cancels attendance to the event before September 30th, 2021, SVF will refund 50% of the retreat fee. ($100) After September 30th, an attendee canceling attendance will not receive a refund of any amount. Please understand that your retreat spot is nontransferable . The spot will be offered to the next person on the waitlist.
If Sun Valley Fibers needs to cancel the retreat because of matters beyond our control (Covid-19 for example) a refund will be issued in the amount of $150. There is a non-refundable deposit of $50 associated with the retreat to cover any unforeseen expenses associated with a potential cancelation. If circumstances make it possible to issue more of a refund, we absolutely will do that and make things right.
Once the retreat sells out, if you would like to be put on the waitlist, please contact me at email@example.com.
