As I designed these stitch patterns to represent the treasures I found on the dunes as a child visiting on the Cape, I realized that the real treasures are the memories.  Make your choice: a collar in figuring weight, a cape in lace weight, or a doll cape in very fine lace weight.  Limited selection of beads is available if you want to add some glitz.

Class fee is for instruction and ½ price for yarn of your choice. (Or bring something from your stash).

 A weekend of fun & learning - - good knitting, good food and good friends! This workshop will be held over the weekend at my home and business in Alburtis, PA - conveniently located 40 minutes north of Philadelphia. The class room is comfortable and beautifully furnished, the setting is peaceful, small town Pennsylvania.  Out of towners can make this workshop a family or romantic get-away with a stay at nearby Stone House Inn and Spa , Bear Creek Mountain Resort or can conveniently stay at the Alburtis Lodge directly across the street from my home.
 
The cost is $120. Also included: morning snacks and wonderful gourmet lunches done by Ebby.

This could be a table cloth in cotton as shown here work-in-progress. Or you could make a small shawl in lace weight or, even a larger one in fingering weight.  I have used an Italian pattern that I recharted to the end of the center, then I added an additional pattern from a Niebling book.

Class fee is for instruction and ½ price for yarn of your choice. (Or bring something from your stash)

MOONTIDE Lace Knitting on Cape Cod
Week-Long Retreat
June 2-9, 2018
Wellfleet, MA
Registration opened!  See below for our no-risk save your spot option!
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 18.
 
CABINS We rent cabins in Surfside Cottages www.surfsidecottages.com (not roughing it, these are comfortable small houses). 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.  Cabin assignments are usually finalized in November with the first non-refundable deposits.  We share housekeeping, food shopping, and cooking with cabin mates.  All cabins have one bath, a fully equipped kitchen, heat, clock radios, telephone, free wifi with internet access and blankets. Most cabins have two bedrooms with a queen bed and one with two twin beds. Most cabins require the ability to navigate 2-3 stair steps, a few have no stairs at all. Most also have an outdoor shower.  You will need to bring: sheets and towels, food (stores are expensive in the village and the nearest supermarket is ½ 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: Lodging, instruction, pattern and yarn is $1,200.   If you wish to make your own lodging arrangements; instruction, pattern and yarn alone is $800.  

If you would like to bring a companion who won't be attending the classes or want to save some lodging costs by sharing your room please inquire for more details.
 
Payment Schedule is as follows:
Registration deposit to reserve your spot: $600 (not refundable)
Final balance due by April 15th: $600 or $200 (not refundable)
