Prayer Shawl Retreat to be March 8

February 27, 2008

Walnut Creek United Methodist Church will host a prayer shawl retreat, “Acts of Love, Gifts of Prayer” on Saturday, March 8 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.


Meet Gwen Bortner, a world-class knitting instructor and a CA-NV Member to Annual Conference. Gwen will lead the retreat, being held in the Social Hall of the church, 1543 Sunnyvale Avenue, Walnut Creek, CA 94598.


The $10/person registration does not include lunch. However, several restaurants are within walking distance of the church (or you may pack a lunch). 


The workshop will offer something for everyone – beginners and master knitters alike. There will be a time of devotions and getting acquainted in the morning, in which participants may work on their own knitting projects. In the afternoon there will be small group workshops for knitters of all levels.
