Welcome to Sun Valley Fibers' 11th Annual Fall Fiber Frolic Retreat --   WOW -- we can't believe this is the 11th one!   Thanks so much for making this happen!!!  



The dates for the 2024 retreat are arrival (and we set up) Wednesday, November 6. 

Thursday morning, November 7, is registration -- also known as grab your goody bags -- and classes begin!   Classes and events continue through Saturday evening, November 9th.   Those staying at the hotel usually grab breakfast and say goodbye Sunday morning, November 5th.


The retreat will be limited to 110 attendees, and class sizes limited to 16 people   Class info is still in the works and will be emailed in June —  but we are SO excited to welcome Marylou Egan to our retreat this year.   Marylou will be teaching 6 - three-hour classes and we are super excited to welcome her to our event.  I know you will find at least one class that you HAVE to take because she’s such a fun and great teacher and you will learn so many new things! 

Sign ups for classes will be in June and will be $40 a class


The classes will be at the following times:   

Morning classes (Thursday, Friday, Saturday) will be 9 a.m. to noon.

Afternoon classes will be 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.


We are very excited to be planning our 2024 Fall Fiber Folic Retreat!   When you do sign up, please only purchase ONE retreat spot.  Additional spots will be refunded.   I do this because I need to be able to send retreat information to attendees and therefore will need current and correct email addresses.   I receive that information at sign up.   Please double check your email address when you do sign up to make sure it's correct.   I thank you very much for helping me stay organized while coordinating and organizing this event.   I very very much appreciate your understanding.




The Room Rate is 109 a night for a King or a Double Queen room.    I will email attendees within 24 hours of their retreat attendance purchase with the room link.


PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT THE HOTEL TO RESERVE YOUR HOTEL ROOM!    I will send the room link within 24 hours of your retreat sign up.




We are excited to once again hold our retreat at  

Hilton Garden Inn, Middleton/Madison West, Wisconsin

1801 Deming Way

Middleton, WI 53562


Registration for the retreat is $225.     This does not include your hotel room or meals.

You may only purchase one registration.   Each guest must purchase their own registration for the retreat.  I know, I'm repeating this.   You might not be surprised to find out that folks do purchase more than one anyway.......

Registration for the retreat includes:

  • A most fabulous Swag bag worth over $100 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.   Always such fun and so inspiring!  Thank you Tracy!!!
  • KALs 
  • Access to our room block and our discounted room rates.
  • There will be refreshments available -- coffee, water and tea -- in the afternoons.   There will be some special treats available Friday and Saturday afternoons.   There is a cash bar in the hotel lobby if you so desire!
  • Marylou will be teaching classes in the mornings and afternoons Please know that class sizes are limited.
  • Class information will go out this summer --   =).    
  • Best of all -- a chance to hang out with old friends and make new friends, some downtime and some "you" time before the crazy holiday season!
  • There will be some fun extra things going on -- stay tuned!!


The retreat is limited in size to 115 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 Fall Fiber Frolic 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.  

If an Attendee cancels attendance to the event before August 30th, 2023, SVF will refund 50% of the retreat fee, minus the processing fee of $5, so . ($105 will be refunded.)  After August 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 $200.   There is a non-refundable deposit of $25 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 sunvalleyfibers@gmail.com.

    Another great retreat!

    Posted by Jennie on 23rd Nov 2022

    I so enjoyed attending the Fall Fiber Frolic retreat this year. There is a perfect opportunity to do as little or as much as you want during the retreat by adding classes to your weekend. Can't wait for the 10th retreat next year!

    What a great event! So much fun to be inspired by other knitters, shop for beautiful SVF yarns, and participate in classes by well-known designers. This was my first time to attend - I already have the dates blocked out on my calendar for next year!

    The cashmere blend fingering yarn is a dream to work with. I will definitely buy it again.
