Want to Chat about the Tour?

Part of the fun of taking a passenger steam train trip is talking with your fellow passengers. This year, we’re providing two locations where our passengers can get to know each other. We’d love to hear about your favorite things you’ve discovered on the tour and see photos of your current crochet projects. You’re invited to join us daily for virtual cocktails/appetizers and dinner. (We’ll be sharing links to some fabulous recipes!)

More about the Get Squared Retreat:

In a nutshell, the Get Squared® Retreat is a chance to get away from the stresses and cares of work and family life. A time to focus on being your most authentic, beautiful self. Instructors Jenny King, Amy Shelton, and Tammy Hildebrand will be there to guide you along the way. You’ll learn a new technique to make crochet garments that will fit you (or anyone else) perfectly, the first time and every time. All with any yarn of your choice and your trusty size J-10/6.0 mm hook, with no need to worry about making gauge swatches or complicated pattern adjustments. Sounds unbelievable, right? Trust us: It works! You’ll also learn how to select colors that will best show off your natural beauty and how to select garment styles that will show off your figure assets. (Yes, you really do have figure assets!)

Unlike at a conference or show, you’ll spend more than just the 15 hours of classroom time with your instructors. You’ll be able to get to know us on a more personal level, while enjoying a hot breakfast buffet and evening cocktails and light dinner with us every day. Not to mention the extra-special fun evening activities we have planned for you! Only at a retreat will you get to spend so much time with your instructors!

Worried about whether you have the skills needed for this retreat? If you can chain, single crochet, double crochet, and achieve fairly consistent tension, you are good to go! The retreat is even perfect for knitters who crochet only enough to put trim on a project.
