Are you ready for a real get-away weekend again? KnitWit Yarn Shop is hosting a knitting retreat right on the ocean in Maine next June. And because we are unsure of the COVID situation, they are planning it in a way that will keep us all safe.

Bristol Ivy, Alicia Plummer, and Jackie Ottino will be there to teach knitting, spinning, and dyeing classes. When you’re not in class you’ll have the opportunity to go kayaking, hike on the trails, or hang out in the gardens with the sheep and goats. You may choose to relax, visit the marketplace, or just knit in the beautiful outdoor setting.

And follow them on Instagram @KnitWitYarnShop or Facebook @MaineKnitWit.

Planet Loving, Memory Maker, Minimalist, Disruptive Innovator, Traditionalist, and Adventurer. It's a lot of responsibility to place on one brand, but the founder behind LoLo Body's world-class solid moisturizer isn't cracking under the pressure. Instead, she's reinventing self-care, building connections, promoting creative adventures, and working for a sustainable future.

LoLo Body Care has been sponsoring us for years. As twisted as 2020 has been, LoLo Body Care is determined to go beyond handcrafting eco-luscious moisturizers - they're changing the conversation in the indie skincare industry. LoLo Body has evolved beyond waste reduction. They're focused on creating a healthy future through innovation and inspiration by creating processes, products, and packaging regenerative and circular, instead of destructive and linear. They say it's handcrafted, but it really comes from the heart. 

Their message for 2021 (besides a healthy future for people, planet, and products). Let's all increase our creative adventures and actively create a planet where the only pandemic is one of kindness.
