Returning to the Bellwether Farm Camp and Conference Center, this weekend will feature crochet and Tunisian crochet classes with Toni Lipsey, social times with Gaye Glasspie and one-on-one life coaching sessions with Max Daniels for day-pass and overnight attendees alike. We are adding a Friday Night Town Hall discussion with our three stars and the Saturday Fabulous Finished Object Fashion Show is back!
Returning highlights are welcome gift bags for all, crochet and knitting technique classes, chair massage with Shannon, free time for needle-felting or friendship bracelets, craft demonstrations, the Farm Tour with Isaac, Gentle Yoga with Evyn, farm to table dining at every meal, and Sunday Brunch and Bingo.

About our guests
"A good coach can point out things you’ve literally never seen before, ask questions that no one else has ever thought to ask you, and make room for you to have entirely new ideas. Realizations, inspirations, action. Coaching helps you get from where you are to where you really want to go … with kindness. Also, typically, it’s fun."
