Women & Wool: The Tapestry Weaving Retreat

Are you craving something more? A connection? A belonging?

Women have been working together with wool for many thousands of years.

When we gather to work with this fiber, magic happens. It connects us. To our self, to each other, to the earth.

Put down your responsibilities for the weekend and come let yourself be fully nourished by incredible food, the fresh mountain air, and working with your hands amongst a community of women.

Anne Choi, pictured here with her work of art, will lead us in creating (a much smaller!) tapestry weaving to take home.

August 22-25Randolph, VT

What to Expect

This retreat is designed to nourish your body and your soul. No experience or skill with wool is necessary. We will simply be exploring and cultivating joy all weekend. While eating the best food available anywhere.

It’s time to put down serving others for the weekend and serve yourself.

Where We'll Stay

We’ll be staying in the historic 7 bedroom farmhouse at Wild Earth Farm. Nestled into the green hills of Vermont on 143 acres, you’ll be able to take in the sunrise every morning from the wraparound porch.

What We'll Eat

The food we eat this weekend will be a gift from the earth and a gift to the earth.

We will be nourished by amazing, locally sourced meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Everything will be gluten free with some gluten-full options. All dairy will be from Karma, our A2A2 Organic Jersey girl. Meat and some veggies will be sourced from the farm and everything else will be from a small local radius.

Due to the beautiful local nature of our meals, no other diet limitations can be accommodated. If you'd like to bring additional snacks/meals we are happy to make room in our fridge for you.

  • Katie Steere

    Katie Steere is a farmer, entrepreneur, homesteader, and wool enthusiast. She is on a mission to re-imagine and re-member how we can live well on this earth.

    She believes that when women come together we heal, and that when we heal, we collectively heal the earth. 

    When she started working with the wool from her Icelandic sheep, something ancient awakened within her and she has been itching to bring women together on her farm to work with this wondrous fiber ever since.

    Katie’s greatest hope is that by helping women connect to each other and to the earth that we can realize the limitless abundance the earth provides to us when we take the time to listen.

  • Anne Choi

    Anne Choi is a fiber artist in Bedminster, NJ, raising a small flock of Shetland sheep for their wool. She teaches spinning and weaving. Her classes explore the relationship between craft and imagination. Anne loves to teach women and thinks the real magic happens not in what our hands are doing while we weave, but in what our hearts are doing.

    In the class Katie took from Anne, women kept asking, “Does it matter if I do this or this?” Every time Anne would respond, “It matters because it’s what YOU decide.”

    Anne encourages students to infuse traditional techniques with personal vision. She has served on the boards of the Garden State Sheep Breeders Association and the North American Shetland Sheep Association. She is the founder and executive director of NJ Fibershed. 

    Most recently, she has been invited to be a US Fellow for the Columbia University Tibetan Rural Green Business Training & Exchange Project

  • Lynne Hadley

    Lynne Hadley, M. Ed. has been an entrepreneur, teacher, and healer serving groups and individuals since 1987. She is deeply trained in therapeutic, meditative, and ecstatic embodiment traditions -- and a lifelong student of movement, perception, and collective action.

    Via playful inquiry, Lynne creates safety, conjures beauty, and crafts moments of silliness, celebration, and rich reflection.

    At this gathering she will help us weave our own fabric together ~ a timely stitch, felting action, gossamer threads, and a support net as needed.
