Knitting retreat with Neulisti

Join us for this weekend retreat where we are going to relax, meet people with the same hobby, and of course, knit! There will be only 13 places available, so make sure to book your place!

The chosen place is the farm Ilolan Maatila. It is located in Valkeakoski, 37 km from Tampere. It is a lovely and calm farm/horse riding school. It has plenty of animals around and welcoming people. You will have time to unwind while hiking in the forest, walking to the town, visit the animals, or just sitting down in their cozy cafeteria.
