May - June 2016 at Surfside in Wellfleet, Cape Cod
Registration is not yet open, however please e-mail if you wish to be put on the notification list!
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.
The pattern for the retreat project 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. We will have classes each morning, Sunday through Friday in the class cabin. Afternoons are free for vacation fun. Most evenings include a get-together of some sort. Total number of students is limited to 22.
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 two bedrooms with a queen bed and one with two twin beds. Most cabins require the ability to navigate stairs, a few have no stairs. Most also have an outdoor shower and many have limited wifi. 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. I want you to share anything taught or discussed in class.
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, Pattern and Yarn are $500. The lodging is $500. The cabins are shared, usually with 3 people per cabin, you will have your own bedroom but will 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 $100 deposit to reserve.
