Norway Knitting Tour:  September 26 – October, 4 2024
We have previously done three knitting tours for Battenkill Fibers, Norway in 2017, Denmark in 2019 and the Baltics in 2023. We’re returning to Norway with a completely new tour. We’ll first stay in Oslo with a workshop where we’ll have a behind the scenes visit to the Oslo Opera House, sightseeing and yarn crawls. Then we take the train to Bergen and on to the Solstrand Hotel and Spa for  5 days. From there we’ll make excursions to workshops at the Utne Folk Museum and the Hillesgård yarn factory as well as to Oleana knitwear and time in Bergen to see sights and shop. We’ll have our farewell dinner at the Øvre-Eide Farm. If you would like to get information about this tour, you can sign up for the Battenkill Fibers newsletter by emailing this address
