Sunday, February 27th through Wednesday March 2nd
The class details are still in formation, but I can assure you that you will learn techniques that will improve your knitting exponentially. Patty is an excellent teacher and is one of the foremost experts in the field of knitting construction.
The general plan for the retreat is as follows:
Settle in, have tea on the porch with your knitting.....graduate to a cocktail when the sun is over the yardarm.
Famous Homestead Breakfast in the Main Dining Room
9am-Noon- Move to classroom in the Convention Wing for 1st class with Patty
Noon- Lunch provided by Magpies
1pm-4pm- Class #2 or nap or hike or spa treatment.
Dinner on your own (make dinner reservations in advance with the Homestead) or just have appetizers in the lounge.
Repeat Monday's plan with the exception of a group dinner that is included in the retreat fee ..see above :)
Check out or extend for more R&R!
This is a retreat and you should feel like you can enjoy as much or as little of the classroom experience as you like. We will have a little Magpie shop so that you can indulge in some fabulous yarn! The Homestead is a beautiful old resort in Historic Bath County so you should enjoy it. Schedule a massage or a carriage ride or some falconry or a swim in the naturally heated spring waters or hike or golf or play tennis or whatever your heart desires. The opportunities are endless....or you can just find a cozy seat in the gracious lobby and knit.
More details will be forth coming as we know them. We are firming up group reservations with the Homestead presently so they may not have our group in their system yet. We can tell you that the room rates will start at $199/night and the accomodations are for you to wrangle.
Retreat Fees are refundable (less $200) assuming we can fill your place with someone from our waitlist.
All retreat guests are required to be vaccinated. We will wait until closer to the event to follow CDC guidelines on mask requirements.
We are excited to welcome new and old friends back to the Homestead for a fun retreat! Space is limited so don't delay in signing uo.
