With two successful retreats under our belt, we are ready to take our retreat to the middle of the US! Welcome to the TKGA Retreat 2024: Minneapolis. Okay, technically its in Bloomington, but that just means it’s easier access to the airport.

Come and join us for a retreat full of camaraderie, education, and knitting in wonderful Minneapolis.   Meet other retreaters that share your passion for knitting, enhance your skills, and recharge your excitement for the craft, all in a city that loves its yarn almost as much as you do.

How about if I want to bring my non-knitting spouse/friend?

Sign up for a single attendee room and a non-knitting spouse or friend can stay with you at no extra charge. Guests can join the retreaters at the Opening Reception and Dinner with prior arrangement at an additional charge – contact Celia Cahill at to make arrangements.

All other meals, as well as classes and activities, are for retreat attendees only. Guests may be welcome to join in the late night knitting and socializing if there is room available.

Explain how the classes work.

What's the meal setup?

Will there be any other activities?


What if I want to come to Minneapoilis early or stay later?

Rooms may be available at our preferred rate (including taxes) for up to 3 nights before and after the retreat. Just make note on the registration form!

I live in the area. Can I just come for the day?

The retreat is set up to be an intensive, all-inclusive, on-site educational experience – an immersion into knitting, if you will.  That assumes everyone would be staying on site for the duration of the retreat.

This was the approach in our contract with the host hotel, which means we are contractually obligated for the rooms and meals, and why only an all inclusive rate is offered.  There is no day rate. But even if you live in the area, consider that you may enjoy the getaway feel of the retreat, even in your local area.
