For some extra pampering while you knit, try Stitchville - they run breaks in stunning Scottish venues, and this year’s location is Old Place of Monreith for 10 days. Expanding on their success, there’s also a five day trip to Krakow, Poland. You can expect to learn knitting tricks, go on beautiful walks and enjoy exciting cultural experiences. Gosia Dzik-Holden runs Stitchville and says: “The formula for my holidays is very simple: breathtaking locations, nourishing food prepared by a top chef, therapeutic massages and treatments - and knitting, of course. The holidays bring women together where they can rest, be creative and sociable.”

Jenna Harrison went on a Stitchville retreat and says: “I had a fantastic week. First, there’s the idea of like-minded people coming together, engaging in a meditative and restorative action. Then, there is the  reality, which included a castle filled with cosy  fireplaces, multiple outings, fantastic food, and clear and gentle knitting advise. Together they created ideal conditions for exploration and renewed creativity.”
