The time for One Lupine's first annual fiber retreat is coming up quickly.  From Saturday, July 18th to Wednesday, July 22nd, a lucky group of fiber fans will be staying in a beach-front captain's house in Machiasport.  All meals are included, and there's an itinerary chock full of fun, relaxation, and inspiration. As of now, there is still room!

You can also join us for the day on Monday or Tuesday with a Commuter Pass. Click below for details. 

We have asked folks what they'd most like to do on their stay with us, so we're still ironing out some details.  We have proposed a tour and tasting at a local winery, tours of a local mill and a few farms, venturing to Quoddy Head Light for a hike through the park, a trip to Campobello Island in Canada, and visits to any of the charming coastal towns.  The area has so much to offer.  So does the house! Beach, walking paths, and views galore.
