Cindy Hallam

For more than 40 years, I’ve been knitting and falling in love with fiber. I discovered my passion for organizing events after raising five children. Now I have the enviable job of traveling the world and planning events of every sort!

I can help you conceive of, plan, and execute your complex, flagship event. The kind of successful event that you will add to your business model as an annual engagement opportunity.

My specialties are knitting retreats, both international and regional and yarn crawls. Having planned over 50 of retreats and yarn crawls, I know what a memorable event needs. I have planned retreats for groups of all sizes, from as few as 10 to as many as 200.

From venue negotiations to onsite registration and presenter payment, I handle every detail. But above and beyond that I create a fiber event that attendees will not forget.

Learn More About Me!

I am very fortunate to have a business I love, to meet so many amazing people, and to travel the world. If you know me you know that I love travel, wool, and the friends I share that with. If you want to know more about me I have to introduce you to some of my other favorite things as well!

My family

I am a mother to five amazing, beautiful, talented adult children. Being a mom to five children has definitely equipped me with the skills to manage multiple things at the same time!

My Pets

My family has Goldendoodles. Our newest member of the family is Ellie, our mini-Goldendoodle. These pups have so much personality and keep me on my toes!


Through mindfulness, staying centered, and the use of holistic alternatives I enjoy the aspect of whole person wellness. 


I love a great glass of wine but I have become picky about the wine I drink lately. Learn more here.

What Others Say


Cindy’s attention to detail and attendee needs elevated retreats to a higher level. I wouldn’t do my Knit For Fun Retreats without her!

The most memorable retreats are the ones organized by Cindy.  The goody bag is sensational, the teachers are incredible, the location is amazing, and the experience is unforgettable.

We just can’t say enough about all she did. There were so many things that we would never have thought of... She just knew what to do and did it. No question she was worth every penny we paid.
