For more information, check out the website: Yadkin Valley Fiber Center.

For more information about the area and lodging check out the website: Yadkin Valley Wine Country.

Please let us know your plans by August 15th so we are prepared.

Members will have the option to come to the Retreat and Exhibit Opening Saturday and Sunday if they choose not to take Connie’s classes.

Lodging is on your own. There are several hotel/motel options in the Elkin area and a couple of Air B&B homes that are really close to the center. They are very nice and quite reasonable if several members choose to go in together.

There is also lots to do in the area including hiking, biking, kayaking, golfing, antiquing, and of course, several wineries in the area.
