Cochenille New Mexico Retreat 2019

Cimarron, New Mexico

August 8th – 11th

We are continuing our tradition of truly retreating in an amazing location and spending focus time with Garment Designer. So, we return to Cimarron, New Mexico and the a 100-year old inn we have grown to love.

The goal of our retreat this year will focus on working with the mixing of fabrication; your choice of yarn arts (knit, crochet, handweaving) with commercial fabrics. The result will be a completely unique result that can be classified as wearable art. Using Garment Designer, you will learn tricks and techniques in designing spliced garments, how to combine different mediums, judging fabrication, and other ‘need to know’ techniques. We encourage you to bring some fabrics and yarns (samples are fine) to use in the development of clothing. You should be able to design two or three complete garments.

Embellishment and trim techniques will also be discussed, and participants are welcome to bring their ideas to share as well.

Please download the flyer & registration form below to view more information on what we have planned, costs, and room information.
