Imperial Stock Ranch Retreat


Join The Fiber Gallery October 24 to 27, 2014 for four days of yarn fun on Oregon’s scenic Deschutes River.

Bonne Marie Burns, Portland-based designer and founder of Chic Knits, will be your instructor for a day of classes. Bonne Marie’s popular patterns are known for their contemporary look and their ease of fit in a wide range of sizes.

Ranch Tour
Visit Imperial Stock Ranch, home of Imperial Yarn. Meet owners Dan and Jeanne Carver and learn about their sheep-to-yarn operation. Imperial Yarn is fresh off its stint as suppliers of yarn for Team USA’s Olympic uniforms. Its sustainably pastured Columbia sheep provide all the yarn for its line of fibers. You’ll also be treated to a sheep dog herding demonstration and, of course, have an opportunity to shop.

Your retreat fee includes eco-friendly bus transportation to and from Seattle. Expect surprise activities en route.

You’ll stay at the Imperial River Company lodge on the banks of the Deschutes River. All your meals are included, plus a wine and cheese reception when you arrive and a boxed lunch for the bus trip back.
