Now that the shawl is completely finished, I would like to teach this again. The students will pick 2 or 3 of the hexagons they want to work on. If you have yarn that you want to use for your shawl, bring that. There will be yarn here to use for practice and/or yarn to buy. Anyone who took the first workshop pays 50% for this one.

Cape Cod Dunes

Weekend Lace Knitting Workshop at MOONRISE

Orefield, PA

May 17th & 18th 2014

“Cape Cod Dunes” This is a design with many options. It can be a cape—full size or doll size, or it can be done as a round shawl. I will teach using the doll cape which can be a collar, using your choice of many thin yarns, (included in the price of the workshop).  At the same time I will get you started on a full-size project, if you prefer.  If you want to commit to a full size cape/shawl you should bring, or be prepared to buy, the yarn you want to use.

MOONTIDE Knitting Retreat 2014

May 31st to June 7th 2014  at Surfside in Wellfleet, Cape Cod

Registration Closed - But E-Mail if interested as spots may be available

Join us for a fabulous week spent with fellow knitters in beautiful, serene Wellfleet, Cape Cod. Focus on your knitting and enjoy a lovely beach vacation at the same time. Classroom time is mixed with free time for vacation activities and show/share/knit in the evenings. We stay right by the ocean, in a group of cottages which back up to the National Seashore, the same ones we've been enjoying for years.

 

Our topic for 2014 will be Announced. The pattern for the retreat project shawl will be exclusively available only to the retreat attendees and is a strictly kept secret until the first day of the retreat!  You'll advance both your technical skills and your ability to translate your creativity into a knittable piece. There will be approximately 24 hours of instruction at our main cabin which has a large, comfortable classroom.  Total number of students is limited to 20.

 

CABINS We rent cabins in Surfside Cottages www.surfsidecottages.com (not roughing it, these are comfortable small houses). We share housekeeping, food shopping, and cooking with cabin mates.  All cabins have one bath, a fully equipped kitchen, heat, clock radios, telephone, and blankets. Most cabins have 3 bedrooms with queen or full beds and one with two twin beds. Most cabins require the ability to navigate stairs, a few have no stairs. You will need to bring: sheets and towels, food (stores are expensive in the village and the nearest supermarket is ˝ hour away), perhaps a small fan, lawn chair or bike if desired. All indoor spaces in Wellfleet are non-smoking by law.

 

THE TOWN Wellfleet has it all when it comes to water—ocean (Surfside is right on the ocean), kettle ponds and the bay. The National Seashore Park takes up 1/3 of the town and is free from development. Sand roads throughout offer endless nature walks. The paved bike trail winds through on the old railroad bed. The village itself is known as a gallery town. There is a marvelous flea market on Sat & Sun and several antique stores. Provincetown is 20 minutes away for serious arty shopping and other cultural activities including whale watching.

   

 

COPYRIGHT I do not copyright my class handouts other than the project book or anything discussed or taught in class—I WANT you to share. But not everyone feels as I do. If you are protective of your ideas and patterns it is not fair to discuss them and then expect fellow knitters to remember not to pass them on.

 

GETTING THERE Wellfleet is 2.5 hours from Boston airport and about the same from Providence RI. Figure about 1 hour after you cross the canal.  Arrival time is Sat in the afternoon.  Departure is Sat in the morning.

 

COST Classes (approximately 24 hours) are $400. The lodging is $500.  The cabins are shared, usually with 3 people per cabin, you will have your own bedroom but may be sharing a bathroom. I will do my best to place you as you instruct on a first-come-first-served basis.  If you wish to stay elsewhere there is a $100 classroom fee and you must still make the $300 deposit to reserve. 

 

RESERVATIONS To reserve your spot e-mail me (MOONRISELaceKnitting@rcn.com) with the following information and follow with your deposit (snail mail or I can send you a paypal invoice).  Please make a copy for your information. A letter will go out confirming your registration and with more detailed information. Registration requires a $300 deposit due prior to November 15th, $200 additional due by January 10th, and remaining balance (for those with lodging) is due prior to April 18th.  Registration is OPEN to all customers on August 1st.  We typically sell out in just a few months.  Please don't delay!

 

I need to know:  Name, Address, E-mail, Phone number, if there are other students you are hoping to share a cabin with and any special considerations or requests.

 

E-mail questions or concerns. If you do not get a response it means my computer is giving me trouble. Call (484) 350-3022.
