Friday 26th May, 2017

Everyone will arrive this afternoon. We will settle into our rooms in the lovely Eden Roc Hotel in Sant Feliu de Guíxols.  Anyone arriving early will have the opportunity to take advantage of the hotel's spa facilities, perhaps choosing an Ayurvedic treatment with the resident specialist or going for a swim or taking a stroll around the famous Cami de Ronda pathway that hugs the cliff tops of this part of the Costa Brava.

We will meet in the later afternoon for our first workshop followed by dinner in the hotel. After dinner we will chill out with a further knit-along in the lounge.

Guests are welcome to work on their own projects or to try their hands at the project offered as part of their itinerary. A welcome package will be presented to each guest featuring the materials required for the holiday project, details of which will be provided nearer to the time.
