Amy’s Thread: Squam’s Inspiration

In the last two weeks, I traveled from Rhode Island to Columbus, Ohio for TNNA, the knitting industry trade show, back to Rhode Island and then to the Squam Art Workshops retreat in Holderness, New Hampshire.

If you’ve been following the Amy’s Thread link for a while, you might remember my post last June about my first trip to the Squam Art Fair. Teaching and trade shows both require a lot of energy and a lot of time on your feet, but this event, which takes takes place at the Rockywold/Deephaven Camp, is a haven after all of the highways, hotels and airports.


With the launch of Berroco’s Fall 2015 collection imminent, it is time for me to start designing the Spring 2016 collection. The four days I spent in the woods with both students and teachers – from all around the U.S., Canada, the UK and even from as far away as Australia – have been rejuvenating and inspiring. I’m excited to get back to work and back to creating.

To find out more about the Squam Art Retreats go to their website. The fall retreat registration is open and a few of our favorite knitting designers will be there.
